Gouden Carolous Tripel

I had a great ride today.  I didn't race the Tour of Bronte with the boys as I worked , but also the race didn't really appeal to me.  But Andy got second place!!!  NICE WORK!!!!

I practiced the new pedaling technique Krys has been trying to drill into my head.  I like it.  I wasn't previously aware that I was even doing anything wrong but after toeing in my cleats a little bit and keeping my knees inwards a bit closer to the top tube I think I can feel a bit more power transfer to pedals.  So I am going with it.

The sun was still up, but as usual I was alone.  Pulled off a pile of heavy duty intervals.  4 fast laps 2 recovery laps. Repeat.

I can't wait to get my new new Rotor stem and put  my new Deda Phazer bars on the Guerciotti.  Of course I will post a pile of pics.  Best bars ever.

Tripel: a style of ale developed by Belgian Trappist monks, a tripel should be golden in colour , not overly fruity in flavour and 8-9% abv. Most often with a blonde label, this style perfected in the Chimay White Cap and St. Bernardus Tripel, but originated by the Westmalle Tripel.
