Ok. Just 5 days to go! 5 days, and the curtain goes up on another race season. This is about my 6th now, and I can never get enough of it. I wait and wait and wait, and then it finally gets here. Then we race a ton, and travel and race some more. The beginning of the year always starts off cold and wet. Then, one day it is hero dirt. Then, it is dusty for what feels like forever. Then, you show up at a race somewhere and it is cold and wet again. Then, you are back at Crawfordsville in the mud at a GNCC race. Then, on the way home from Crawfordsville it is starting to spit snow. And, all of a sudden it is winter again and the long season of waiting starts over again.
But enough of that. Before that happens, there will be racing to be done on many many weekends.
But, before that happens, I have to go home from China. I am in Shanghai now, and will be making my way toward home tomorrow. Getting home takes 2 days from here. There is the flight to Taipei, then the flight to Los Angeles. That combination takes about 22 hours. Unfortunately, I arrive in LA too late to get home that same day. So, I stay over night in LA and then have to fly home early the next day. In the end, the travel home takes about 40 hours all together. Ugh…
So, I am going to end this trip with a bunch of photos that I took today in China.
That is pretty much it for this trip. Next update – Race day!
