Well, I guess this is what it’s all about. I am out the door in a moment to head up to Seattle for a criterum bike race at Volunteer Park. A special treat today is being cheered on by my friend Ann, who is visiting from Virginia! Rock on!
The weather looks overcast or rainy today. Maybe my early race will be rainy. I’ll be letting some air out of my tires, if it is.
Last night our team held a clinic for racing these short, intense races. It’s a lot like cyclocross in terms of intensity, only if you fall, the surface is less forgiving. The speeds are faster, too. Thankfully it’s only going to be about a 40 minute race.
Hopefully after today, I’ll be stronger for cyclocross…
