I love racing. I am kind of pushing it with the next few weeks and I am aware of that. I want to see how well a half used up 41 year old body will respond to the punishment I am about to inflict on it. For me it's fun to see where the point will come that I blow up so hard that I curl up in the middle of the trail, sobbing uncontrolably, in the fetal position in a puddle of my own urine and.......................
In the meantime, I am riding enough to keep me fresh and otherwise just hanging out.
I hope to do well at Tsali and the Burn, I am not that concerned about the Mohican. Since I DNF'd the first race in the NUE series, my chances of doing well overall are not good. I still am going to go and see what happens. I'm just a sucker for experimentation. Think of me as a big old 180lb lab rat.
