And we’re off!
I’ve been keeping the site on the down-low while I fleshed out some content and tinkered with the design. I haven’t even told my girlfriend yet, lest she tell me how ridiculous I am for spending time on this when I should be cuddling, sorting laundry or working on my sprint. (This weekend I secretly wrangled stylesheets while she read in the next room. I toggled to a different window whenever she walked past. I felt like I was IM’ing with a mistress.)
Now, however, I’m ready to start spreading the word, and I’ve moved the blog to the top level of the domain. Please e-mail me if you find any bugs or have any suggestions. I’m particularly interested in populating the list of training rides and finding out about any local racer blogs I might not be aware of.
I’ve also added a photo to the logo at the top of each page. I’ll give a Clif Bar to the first person who can identify the two racers, and a Clif Bar and and a Builder’s Bar if they can also identify the race it was taken at.
UPDATE: Julian Baumgartner (Team Clif Bar Midwest) correctly recognizes Ed Amstutz (XXX Racing-AthletiCo) ahead of Ansgar Graw (MetCycling) in the masters field sprint at Parkside Criterium No. 2.
