Due to popular recommendation, I decided to swap out my tires for this weekends race. I have fresh rubber on my bike now. I haven't gotten rid of the old ones yet. They are special to me. Why? I don't know why. Nevertheless, the new tires I will be using are holding air very well. Let's hope this continues throughout the weekend!
Just out of curiosity, was I the only guy to use the wet weather as an excuse for a rest week? I am? Oh...well I was just kidding. I trained really hard ALL week. Or not. After my failed attempt to race this past Sunday, I was really bummed. I had planned on riding hard on Monday to make up for the lack of racing. Well, it rained. That has continued pretty much all week. Today was my first day back on the bike. It felt really good. I missed my bike. My legs were a little tight at first, but after an hour and a half of riding, I feel ready for this weekend. Now all I have to do is keep my bike together. Hmmm... That sounds so simple. Good luck to all who will be racing this weekend. Hannah Park is about to become a war zone!
