Anti-Trash Talk

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?

The choice should be determined by what leaves you with the biggest grin.

Come ride PC with Jon and I instead. I may even let you beat me up a few climbs.

Why not come ride with the "bears?"

I make up for my lack of cycling prowess by reading this blog and pretending it's me :)
