So, um, there’s this little race…

Posted on: Thursday February 18, 2010

Maybe you know it?

The first time I entered I was rendered to spectatorship and the best riders I knew crawl out of the forest, broken men. Monsters ordinarily, their faces were fixed into grimaces and thousand-yard stares well before the finish line. Jim pulled out, sat down and wouldn’t stop yabbering about umbrellas, such was his state. Jase Jackson had people help him back onto his bike because he couldn’t stand, let alone swing a leg over a bike without giving way to severe cramping.

Good times.

Well, I’m signed up again. And in spite of the best possible intentions and seemingly clear slate in the lead-up, you just never can tell what kind of time-sucking antelope is gonna fall on your plate. Mine has been so big that I’ve been apologising for getting in late at an hour everyone else in the company calls early, eating on premises and then saying goodnight to developers at 10:00pm, leaving them to keep trucking into the night.

Training? I’m in this deep for the love and the joy of it. A lack of training and an edge of pre-loaded adrenal burnout can only make it more epic right?
