I've been on the fence about racing the Draper Super XC Race on Saturday. It's a brutal distance (not long enough to be an endurance race yet longer than a normal XC race) And if I race, do I race SS or gears? I already know if I race SS I'll be racing for scraps. With names like Dan Z., B.Tolbert, Corey L., Chris C., I will need to have the race of my life to beat any of these guys. Not to mention, I haven't touched my SS in over 4 weeks. But deep down, I know I will have a faster time on my SS than on my gears.
3 times up Clarks and up Canyon Hollow at race pace is going to hurt. A lot.
There. That is my anti-trash talk for now. I feel better now. Pressure if off, right?
