My biking season may be over.
I was thinking the circuit race Monday, Interbike Crit, and maybe Harvest Moon. With Monday out, that means training for three weeks with no racing. The idea of not racing at Interbike sounds kinda nice for a few reasons:
1) Interbike is really hard. Trying to find the time to spin the crap out of the legs every day on top of everything else is rough. Last year I was getting up at 6 every morning to ride for an hour before going to work. Work generally goes to about 10, as you pretty well have to dinner and schmooze it up every night. It might be more fun not to be preoccupied with racing.
2) The likelihood of turfing it is pretty good.
On the other hand, I hate watching bike races.
Making Harvest Moon was always going to be a challenge. It is the day that I drive the truck home from Interbike after (again) a pretty taxing week. Max speed ~65. On the downhills. It’s probably a seven hour drive in a normal car.
If anyone knows of races that I could realistically make, I am all ears.
On the other hand, if San Pete was it, at least I went out with a bang~!
