My goal for this race is for fun and training. Mostly mental training (being a mental midget I need all the training that I can get) - getting over travel, riding in tough conditions (cold, rain, ice & mud), and getting over the anxiety of racing.
If you notice to the right, I've got a new sponsor. Crank Brothers have graciously offered to sponsor me. I've been using their pedals for about 4 years now and love them. I use them on all my bikes, including my road bike - yes, not very roadie like, but they are light and I don't have issues with them.
Crank Brothers are also sponsoring the team that I am racing under, Machine Head Racing. I hope you jerks get your shite together soon so that we can put that order in - hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge. By the way MHR, when are you going to put a shirt on my back?
Got to go, Rick is picking me up at noon. Got to get my stuff packed. Wish me luck!
