So I guess I'm crossing over to the dark side. I am actually going to attempt a MTB race. I've been toying with the idea for a while, and the opportunity has presented itself. I will be doing the Branched Oak 12 hour marathon, TEAM event, with two other guys from Highgear. There is no way in hell I could do it solo.
I figure while I wain on FELT to get me a new road frame, that I'll give it a shot. I am going in with NO expectations, and am really expecting to be bad. I rarely ride my MTB so I know that this is for fun and it will make for good experience. There is still no way I'll make a conversion from roadie, but this is another outlet to expand my horizons. I'm really looking forward to it. However, I don't get out of the shop on Saturday the 25th until 6 so I'm rushing my ass to Lincoln as fast as possible. Should make for a long day. I think I can do it.
No word on when(or if) my frame is coming in. Hopefully it's not that long I am going insane. I've been riding one of our Serotta's lately, even though the ride is better(unparalleled no even close to the same category) it's still not MINE. I hope it comes in time to train for the Norfolk Crit that I want to do so bad, but it's also the same day as the Venaculas/Sevendust show that I really want to go to. We'll see how that one pans out. I might not do either and just wait for the Papillion Crit and Babcook. Those are a little farther off, and I will have some time to train for them. Racing this year is going down the tubes extremely fast, so I'm pretty bummed.
I just have to look on the bright side and realize that I have the best job in the world, and I couldn't ask for better people to work with.
