Hubs and Little Guy raced in the Bricks and Spokes bicycle race in Vicksburg a few weeks ago. They weren't sure they were going to be able to handle it after a practice run in the military park which left them kind of defeated. However, after checking out the race map they decided they would try the ten mile race.
There were a LOT of racers there for this race. We had to be there at 7:30 to line up to get started. *yawn* It was very cool which was nice for the bikers, but breezer for the spectators.
Patrick, from The Biggest Loser, was on hand to wish the racers well. We don't watch the Biggest Loser, but my parents do so they had told us that Patrick lived in Vicksburg and that they were cheering for him. We have since seen him on a commercial. Doesn't he look great?
Hubs texted us when they were about one mile out from completing the race. We were so excited to see them coming up the hill. They looked awesome!
I am so proud of my guys. Little Guy has already asked for a new bicycle for Christmas. We have told him that he has to pick which kind he wants to have: a street bike for racing, a mountain bike for the mountain riding (yes, there is a mountain bike club here), or a off road bike for his BMX riding. He is still deciding.
Whatever he decides, I know we will love watching him ride.
