Preserving the moments

Nice Richmond Times-Dispach article about the recent X-Terra weekend event in downtown Richmond. Awesome mt bike race, my favorite of the year.

Also, great coverage of Nick Bax's win in Silver Spring, MD race by Washington Post last weekend.

(see left) So why does screaming down a hill on a bicycle feel so much safer than riding a roller coaster? Judging from the photo, I am alone in thinking Apollo's Chariot is pure evil. This "hypercoaster" at Busch Gardens has a 210 foot drop, 8 additional drops, and no darn shoulder harnesses.

[front row, Sally (grandstanding), Kisha, Pamela, and Liz (losing it) take on Apollo.]
