Mountain biking bliss: Cascade Chainbreaker, Bend, OR 5/10/09

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!!!
The fastest guy is on the left! Dont' let the second step fool you.

Hanging out with friends.
