Thursday, February 23, 2012 - Race ReportsSo I showed up for Chileno Valley Grasshopper #2 last Saturday. I wore some more secret clothing to go under the radar (getting the new kit this weekend). I know it worked because some idiot cut in front of me at registration. It also worked when I laid it down in some dirt before the start.
After all that I was still there way early. I passed the time checking out all the masters guys with their carbon wheels. Then I saw this:
After 5 minutes I settled on Elongated Humeri.
So we start off hard. Then it's cross tail along the coast and Levi is killing it. 20 guys, 10 guys, 7 guys, 4 guys, Finally we conceded that height and weight don't correlate to length and girth and just let him go. My new teammate Jim Stemper, Taylor Bertrand-Barrett and I rode the last 45 miles into a headwind on our own. Good times.
Tomorrow I leave for camp. Since it's called training camp and not "sit around and get fit later" camp, it may be a bit of a shock.
