I’ve been talking to Lynda a little and she thinks that it would be a great training ride for the 24 hrs of Moab – 3 weeks later. I hadn’t really considered it since I don’t generally do that well at shorter races like that. What I have to my advantage is that i can keep going for a long time – 24 hrs. In an 8 hr, I’m going to have to maintain race pace (really no recovery on the bike) for the entire race. There’s a first time for everything – you never know what can happen.
So, I cleaned up FiFi and put some new tires on her and remembered how beautiful she is! I’m running a meatier tire up front since the course is so soft. I’m also trying a Maxxis Crossmark in the rear. I’ll be riding on them a little this week and got a good ride in yesterday on them. Here’s a pic of the cleaned up rocketship (cleaned my helmet while I was at it!)
Dave, you’re next! (my dog, not my fellow racer Dave Harris…heehee.)
