Georgia Single Speed Championship

So its been nearly a week since my hometown of Macon, GA held the Georgia Single Speed Championship. It was a great weekend of beer drinkin' and bike ridin'!! On Saturday, I was lucky enough to actually get 3rd place in the Time Trial event. I was only a few seconds behind 2nd place. Saturday afternoon we did a Short Track event but by that time I had a few too many in my system which slowed me down even more than I normally am. I was happy to say that I didn't take last in the Short Track. Saturday night, a group of us got together and did an urban ride in downtown Macon. By the way, the Rookery (local bar) actually quit serving drafts now. Whats a bar without draft beer? They have probably lost my business now. After leaving there, we rode back to some friend's place for more beer (see the trend for this weekend). The next morning I woke up to a less than pleasant feeling. Not only was I not feeling so sharp, I was sunburned from being out all day on Saturday. I decided to skip the main race on Sunday and sat around drinking beer. A lot of the local guys took a podium stance during the weekend's races. Congratulations to all who did better than me!! :) Overall, the event ended well. A lot of great people came out and I would be safe to say that we all had a great time.
