Peter and Leif before the ride. Peter forgot his jersey and had to wear one of mine. Just a little big on him but it worked.

Today was a long road race with a 4 lap crit style end. The race was out in some real beautiful forest and mountains. Well Nate was able to make it to the end in the field and pulled a solid 36th place finish. I don't have any of the details of the race but Nate has moved up in the GC making up some of the time he lost in the time trial. Now he needs to keep up the hard work and try to finish high in the field and he can keep moving up in the field finishes and even maybe the GC to. http://www.charlesfaubert.com/resultats/Etape5.pdf. Tomorrow he has a 99 km race of 9 laps on a 11 km course. Later..

Nate got his last training ride in today and now he has to toss the last few things into the travel bag, go over the bike one last time and then load into the team travel van and head to the race tomorrow morning. Wow the time has flown by and now it is time to put all the hard work together for a good race and a good time. I hope that the team does well and they all have safe travels and a safe race. I will try to keep you posted on the results as I find out.

Yesterday Nate got to tag along with Ron for a spin in the Kettles. Nate said that he wishes that he had done it a few more times this summer but with the racing and all it did not fit in. But maybe after he done with the races in Canada he will go and then after National camp he will fit in a few before school starts. Thanks Ron for taking Nate for the ride. Later..

Pictures from the Gun Show by Ronsta.
It has been a few days since the last update. But on Monday was the 4th of July and we had a little celebration at our house since Summerfest was closed and that had Maddie, and my parents free to get together. So we had a cookout and celebrated Nate's birthday early as my parents will be out of town by then. My brother, Ken, Chris, Paul and Cece's Mom came over to. It was nice as we swam and sat around and talked for a while. We were going to go to the crappy bike ride but after the heat and sun plus a few beers I sat at home and went to bed early. Maybe next year we will make the crappy bike ride.
