first_imgI covered some ground this weekend. Pisgah was in a good mood and I’m smiling back, legs are sore too. Point to point, Bent Creek to Cove Creek Campground, 24 hours of Obiefest, than point to point Cove Creek to Bent Creek. Otto turned two, Lucy had her first wipeout on the strider, trying to sleep reminded me of Bonaroo, we shivered and worried about the kids freezing, maybe slept after the last dog barked, then woke and slowly realized how sun and warmth can ease the aches.Winter’s broke and Pisgah is refreshed. The ground is saturated and spongy, the beeches are washed up with new rocks, the trails are drying out, and the hemlocks are all dead. I like to see the little changes over a winter and think about time. Pisgah is at least six thousand and one. Thinking about geological time makes me feel ok with things, I’m alright existing in geological time.I haven’t been riding as much as I’d hoped but I feel ok considering. If there’s one thing I can do it’s wing it. Carpenters are famous for that. On the job you have a plan but you learn when to shelve the plan and look at the house. I’ve got winging it down. It might be a great attribute and downfall as such things go. As this year’s racing season comes upon me I can tell one thing and that’s that I’ll be going back to the tried and true strategies of winging it, getting loose on the downhill’s, and saying my prayers. Right now I’m just thankful for a great weekend, an epic with my dad on Saturday, Trish getting a good one today, and a solo mission home.Oh, and also thankful to be soon riding the lightest bike of my life, a Scott. It’s lining up just like I planned.last_img read more

I am sure if they have it in the bag by then they will be delighted and they can go and enjoy a Wembley cup final.” As well as reaching the cup final, Latics have also found form in the Premier League, claiming 10 points from their past five games. Wigan have made a habit of staging successful escape acts in recent seasons and they could be in the process of doing so again. Platt said: “I think you see it not just with Wigan. It is very dangerous to try and predict the three teams who will get relegated, in February. “The last six weeks of the season, form seems to go out of the window. Inevitably, if you are down there and have done it year on year as Roberto seems to have done then you have that experience to take teams through.” City are unlikely to risk playmaker David Silva as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury. If manager Roberto Mancini wants to make changes after the energy-sapping weekend display at Wembley, he could consider Micah Richards, Maicon or Jack Rodwell, who are all training again after lay-offs. Manchester City host their FA Cup final opponents Wigan tonight but assistant boss David Platt feels it will have little bearing on next month’s showpiece. Platt expects all thoughts of Wembley to be put aside as both clubs concentrate on outstanding issues in the Barclays Premier League. City, although out of contention for the title, still need the points to secure second place while Wigan could climb out of the relegation zone if they can pull off an unexpected victory at the Etihad Stadium. Platt said: “It is not a case of because we are playing them tonight we will know how to play them in the cup final. I don’t think it has any correlation whatsoever. Each team has four or five games before then.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
