Milan San-Remo is this morning. The earliest live video is 7:30 CST. All the fireworks tend to happen towards the end of the race, so you don’t need to worry about missing something if you can’t watch it early. Odds say Sagan wins. I would take the rest of the field over Sagan, but he would be a good pick if you only had one. Live video links are here.
I’m still out in Moab. Doing exactly the opposite that of MSR. Maybe not time wise, but riding-wise. I road 50 miles yesterday off-road. It took 4:45 minutes. Lots of big drop-offs and bumpy riding. My rear Fox shock isn’t holding air and it is bumming me out. I’m carrying a shock pump today. The shock is new-ish, less than a year old and hasn’t been ridden that much. The bike has remote dual lockouts, front and back, on one lever. But that is pretty valueless when the rear shock has 40 psi in it.
I’m not sure where we rode yesterday, but the scenery is unreal. That is if you have the guts to look around while riding. I am having to concentrate pretty hard, so only get to look around when stopped. It could be worse. I’m not complaining. I thought I would be worse.
I fell once pretty good yesterday. I was trying to ride up a big rock and didn’t make it and fell off to the side. I have it on video. Actually, Vincent has it now, so maybe I can post it soon. I didn’t get hurt, no blood. Just sore.
But, I was already sore. My arms, back and neck are aching. Today is going to be another 4 plus hours, so we’ll see how that goes. I had only 12 psi in my tires two days ago. I put 18 in for yesterday and it felt pretty hard. They are 2.4’s, so feel harder since they are larger.
Okay, want to try to catch the end of MSR and get ready to spend the day in the sun. I am pretty burnt (sunburnt) right now. Early season tan I guess.
