1 week to go!
If you have been living under a rock, then you may not know that in 1 week, Scott and I will take on the biggest race around – again. Yowza. Yep, we will be loading it all up and heading down to Alabama.
You will remember that last year, we coined it up as a new phrase describing the worlds worst weather conditions. It was so hot, that even the heat didn’t like it. It was roasting. It was 106 with 90% humidity. It was beyond hot, it was Alabama hot! This year it looks to be much more pleasant there. A week out, the weather is showing just a high in the mid 80’s. That will make the whole thing about 1462 times more manageable.
We hope to make better on our 5th place showing there last year. There are a lot of variables in a 24hour race, but we have done our best to prepare for that. We have done all the training hours, we have built pristine race bikes, we have sorted all the gear, we have a complete support crew, etc… Not much left now, other than to load it all up and drive to Alabama and get after it.
Will we be able to handle the heat, will we truly have our nightime issues sorted out, can we turn out consistent laps for 24 hours? All of that will come clear just 7 days from now.
From the start of the drive, you can follow along with us:
– Minute by minute with our Twitter feeds. We will post up pictures, and notes and whacky things that we see along the way.
– We will update our blog site more than once, and may have a couple of guest bloggers with us who will be helping crew for us. You can see it all here.
It is going to be a huge adventure again, and we plan to have more fun than anyone could possibly imagine.
Thanks for following along,
