Syracuse, New York (WSYR-TV) - Onondaga Community College safety officers were forced to turn away Jazz Fest patrons Saturday night after thousands packed the college campus to watch Kenny G perform. It's estimated somewhere between 30,000 to 50,000 attended Jazz Fest last night.
Those who made it out stood shoulder to shoulder to hear the famed musician play his soprano saxophone. The instrumental artist has sold more than 75-million albums worldwide, but is best known for his Grammy award-winning hit, Forever in Love.
Ride safe my friends. Getting run over my a soccer mom listing to Kenny G is no way to go.

So if you live in the area, get out there and race. Here's a link to the details:
The fields are getting bigger each week and the racing will make you strong like bull.

So far, none of the ingredients listed on Father Hennepin's elixirs have matched those on the banned substances list, but the investigation is ongoing. One thing is clear, drinking the night before a race is either the strategy of madmen or a brilliant plan. Sometimes genius and madness are tough to differentiate.

Crash & burn baby. Drumroll made the separation of 8
riders at the front of the Black Fly w/3 team mates only to crash. In a truly PRO fashion, he went to the doctor today as his leg kept swelling -- pain & swelling being one thing, but not being able to ride a whole different story. The doc said ice & pain killer. So Grey Goose on the rocks it is (in true PRO fashion). The doc wanted crutches but Drumroll couldn't bother as they are unPRO. Why bother with the doc you ask? See below .... which leg looks out of place?
Skinny Phil was a beast w/a freaking 2nd place overall!! Jeff W (another Ommegangster) took the overall as beast supreme giving us 2 'gangsters on the podium & 4 in the top 8.

Three courses, an A & B race, three local teams and one local club. What more could you ask for?
If all goes well, the TNTS rides will morph into a Tuesday night CX series. MMmmm CX Series. Speaking of CX, I installed some new components on the Ridley a little over a week ago. FrankenSRAM. A little bit of Red, a little bit of Force and a bunch of Rival. Finished installing it at 11:30pm and got up bright and early and took it on a 34 mile shakedown ride with 4500 feet of climbing on tractor trails, road and single track. Took it out again this weekend to Green Lakes and I think the shakedown portion is behind me. The SRAM is running great and the bike is pretty much ready for the Black Fly on the 13th. The Black Fly one of my favorite races of the year. 40 miles of DEC roads, pot holes, hills, and well . . . black flies. Oh yeah, deer and horse flies as well. Most of them can fly quicker than 20MPH. These bugs eat Deep Woods Off for breakfast, so you don't want to get a flat. I highly recommend this race if you live anywhere near the Adirondacks.
If you live in CNY, check out the TNTS rides. They will make you "strong like bull."
