Pork in the oven

After the Maros XCO I was craving for some meat so I bought some pork. Pork is a very flavorful meat and if you add some veggies and put it in the oven it is very delicious. I used a couple of carrots, some green onion, garlic and a few whole pepperonis (chili). I seasoned the meat with salt and pepper and I had some leftover pasta sauce so I pored it on top. After the meat got tender I served it with some pasta. It was very delicious:

Maros Bike XCO Cup

Last weekend i went racing. Although this was only my second XCO and I don't really like it because it is too fast with killer climbs, it was a lot of fun. The race was very hard, I wasn't prepared for it I need to train more and I had a bad cold to. The course was interesting with two hard descents, one of them was rocky, a few hard climbs , some of them were push bike for me, and there was a bit of mud to.

I started at the end because I don't really like these very fast races and I knew that the start will be very fast. To my surprise I passed a lot of people in the first kilometers. After that a few people passed me and in the last lap I passed two guys. I finished in 24th place in my age category.
I was very happy when I finished, although I've hit the ground on the rock bed because somebody stopped in front of me. It was a great experience and I saw that I made great improvement from my first XCO which was two years ago.

Spring in the forest

Last Sunday I went for a ride in the forest near the zoo. The ground is covered with a lot of different colors, green, blue, white, yellow. Spring is definitely here only the trees need to get more colorful.
I was riding on the race course where I was running a week ago and I saw a few deers. This was the closest I got to deers in the wild. I took some pictures of these beautiful animals:
After about two great hours in the forest I went home, changed the bike and went for a fast ride on tarmac.
It was a great Sunday on two wheels :)

First real ride

Saturday I went for a ride in the forest, and this was the first good ride this year. The road was dry and it was a lot of fun to ride fast in the forest. I missed this feeling a lot, the winter was too long :)

I saw a huge rabbit but when I got my camera it hopped away. This was the second time I saw a bunny in the forest. I tried to follow it but rabbits are very fast, maybe next time I will catch it with my lens.
After riding in the forest to Acatari I explored the hills around the city, I wanted to do that for a long time. It was a very nice 2 hour ride and I was very happy when I got home.
