Its been a while since being here, so I figured I would stop by and say whats up. The last time I posted alot was last summer while doing a swap on a prelude that I bought with a blown engine, and put an H22 in there. Well I still have it, it sucks. Main relay is shot but it still runs strong. Really, to me, a car isn't really anything special anymore. Don't get me wrong, I still love cars, and I want an evo, but right now I don't care. Now to what I have been up to. School life: I just finished up my third year at Michigan Tech. I've been doing real well, and managed to make deans list this last semester with my highest GPA ever (3.8ish). I decided to take on a Co-op and now work at Denso North America, doing material testing (I am a materials engineering student. They pay pretty good, but its rather boring with a lot of lab work. The co-op is from summer to the end of December. I will be missing out on one class that I need so I am basicly going to have to stay another year, but I don't mind since I will be able to take a MUCH lighter load. Now for what I have really been up to. As a few know, I started road biking a few years ago. I was doing a group ride up at school and one of the riders asked who I raced for, I said I didn't and he was shocked and said that I would do great and move up to his class real fast. So I started racing. First event, I pulled in around mid pack. Next few events, I pulled in top 5 positions. I started trying to find all the fast group rides around the area. I randomly found this one when stopping into a shop one day and the owner said they had a fast ride that night. I show up, and managed to drop everyone except for one other rider. I still show up to the rides and now a few more are sticking with me and they love the challenge. Another ride I go to, there are faster people, but I'm still the one normally stepping up the pace. So one of the riders asked me if I ever MTB. I haven't been on a trail in probally 7 years, and never competitively. He says that I am beyond fast on a road bike, and asked if I would enter a race if he found me a bike. The race was today. I was hopeing that there would be a ton of climbing since I'm a great climber on the road. Unfortinately there wasn't with a TON of technical secitions. None the less, I felt like I was doing OK, and was passing a bunch of people. I finish my lap, and it turns out I pulled in the same times to up to 3 minutes faster then guys who have been racing for years. They asked me to race for them next weekend, so I might have to make another big purchase pretty soon.
