My computer is an old grampy pants and has no stamina – hence the lack of battery power and blog posts. 😉 I’ll sum up the last few days in the form of a photo montage. Sing the Rocky montage in your head for full effect. (our prep is kind of like Rocky…. or something)
Really loading up the FJ… or loading down.
Welcome to the Black Hills, South Dakota.
Uncle Rico was fleeing from Idaho. “Back in ’82, I could throw a football over them mountains.”
Pre-riding the course.
I broke one of my spokes pre-riding. I hope my wheel holds up….
a little road riding to keep the legs fresh
I think I might follow that Kerkove guy just about anywhere….
Followed by some sight-seeing. I wore my hot pink phanny pack and bermuda shorts.
Look!!! Amazing!! My new Suunto Lumi! What an amazing site!
That dude with the glasses is pretty cool. 😉 I wonder how long it took to carve those helmets….?
The evolution of the American dream or something.
and my newest bike flare. Some people put flames on their sweet ride, but by golly, I’m going to put it on mine.
I have done the best I can to get the legs hot and ready. I hope I ride smart tomorrow since the last time I rode a 50 mile race was 4 years ago. Must not go too hard!!! I am wearing a really cool t-shirt with a four leaf clover on it to take in all the good luck I can. 😀
