Battenkill this weekend…

I have no idea why I’m doing this race. It is so ridiculously early to be racing.

We are one week into April. My first race of the year is typically 6 weeks later than this.

I went out yesterday for a lunch ride and did a few small sections of race tempo. I am so not ready to do that for 3+ hours.

While I’ve never been stronger this early, and while I’ve already done a lot of really hard riding this year, ready for 62 miles at race intensity?

Yeah right!

The only thing I’m clinging to is that everyone else is in the same boat.

Climbing is my only weapon in this race. Unfortunately, I’m a gutless descender, and that tends to nullify good climbing. So we shall see.
