Okay, you know how you plan to do something and then it goes a different direction. I would have bet you a ton of money that I would have been road racing over the Labor Day weekend. I knew/know that I needed the speed work to prepare properly for Chequamegon in a couple weeks. But, I got selfish and am still in Steamboat Springs riding MTB bikes. The riding the last two days has been difficult. Pretty slow, technical climbing on used trails. Today we’re driving a bit North and doing a 5 hour ride. I’m a little hesitant, but game. I fell once yesterday pretty good. Good enough that I’m super stiff today. I flipped over the bars at the bottom of a steep pitch. I sort of intentionally did this so I didn’t run into a 2 foot erosion gully. I landed pretty good, but my bad shoulder is worse once more. I think I just have to get used to it. Okay, here are some photos from yesterday. We’re getting an early start. At least early for me.
