I have been riding quite a bit, but still dont feel as good as I did in April.Power is still not consistent, and my HR is still a bit high, but it is getting better.
I will be racing against some good friends as well. Eric Evans, teammate Jon Houghton, Bernie Shaio-hopefully they will have pitty on me and allow me to tag along.
I won this race back in 2010. It is a great course, but I will change my gearing now that I am familiar with the trail. The only thing tough about this race is that it doest have alot of climbs. That is my strength, so it is a little tougher for me on the flatter stuff; weird thing is guys who weigh 183lbs shouldnt be good climbers anyway. I will run a 34/18 as apposed to a 32/19, which will give me 52.1 gear inches; a little taller than the 46.4 current setup.
I know the gang from Hogans Hero's will be with me on sunday and I am hoping this recovery stint doesnt become my Stalag 13...because as Colonel Klink says "No prisoner escapes from Stalag 13!
