So many choices... & Signs From Ride Gods
Spent the whole evening at Tom's last night getting my bikes in shape. Titus has a new cassette, chain and XT crank and El Santo go a new cassette. So now I need to decide which bike is gonna do today's ride. Hmmmmm. Since I hope to be out on the dirt a while, I think I'll go with El Santo. But I have been digging getting back on my hard tail. THIS IS TOO MUCH PRESSURE!!!
Gonna head over to Boyce for some multi hour, multi lap, single track riding. Hope to get 2+ hours in. Should be sweet conditions.
The Ride Gods have spoken: Since I got my crank for Titus I started getting anxious to race and thought it might be cool to get up at 4 a.m. on Sunday and drive out towards Gettysburg for Iron Cross. So I went to check the web site for directions etc., and KA-PUT their server was all jacked up, ALL DAY! I needed to register on Bike Reg (which was fine) by 5 p.m. But the more I thought about it I took this as another sign that I just was NOT meant to go to this race. Along with my Race Face crank busting in half, getting sick , devloping an ear infection, and now not being able to access the directions to the race I said "f#ck it", the Ride Gods have spoken. So let it be written... blah, blah, blah...
If you're interested in cyclocross racing at all or just want to see what it's all about check out these video clips from team Hup United. Fat Marc had mentioned this team on his Blog and being a neb-shit I checked out their site. Pretty cool stuff
Check it out.
I've only ever done CX on my hard tail, but I'm hoping next year to try more if possible. There's a night CX race here next week that might be cool.
Time to go ride. Post more later.
