Tim and I headed east this past weekend to one of our favorite races: Cascade Chainbreaker. In 2003 we took our first trip to Bend together for this race and 6 years later, we actually know what we are doing. This year it was combined with a local function set up by a Monavie distributor in Sisters. Saturday night I went over there to talk about my career, training and nutrition. It is kind of strange to be the 'star' of the show. Sunday I was in much more familiar territory, on my bike, racing in the dirt. Weather was great, amazing turnout and a fun course. Winning was not so bad either. Just another weekend in the Butler life, racing bikes, hanging out with friends and having fun. Tim got second by a 1/2 an inch. Literally pipped at the line. But he is still the fastest in my books!!!
