Spring seems to drag on and on and on. Lots of bike prep time, gym training time and then finally we get to start riding outdoors.
But now it is finally time to load up the trailer and drive to a GNCC race. The season is already started for the lucky people that live where they can race already in Feb/Mar. But for us, it is not really time to start racing until April. The first races will be difficult, it has been a long time since we tried to go fast. But, as I always say – when you want to get fit for racing, you race. Someday, when I am old I will want to get fit for trail riding and I will trail ride.
So later this week, Mat and I will load up and head to Union SC, for the Big Buck GNCC. It is fast and rough. It will be a rude awakening for my body. Oh well.
Time to get racing.
