Someone asked me before the race how I thought I would do. I said, “I have no expectations.” I am such a MOFOing liar! Of course I had expectations, I wanted to win. I kept telling myself that I had no expectations in order to calm myself and enter into a Zen state of mind that I like to be in before the start of any race. It’s the state of mind that does not do or think or stress or care. It just is. I can get there pretty easy and like to stay there for the start and part of the first lap of a race. I sometimes have a hard time getting back to the race. On Monday the water crossing woke me to the fact that I was in nearly last place. Screw Zen, I gotta pedal.
Base camp. With an extra 4 hours of waiting due to weather and course changes I was glad to have the shade. I also went through 10 gallons of CarboRocket.
My favorite Carborocket addict.
Alex, I know you have to say Monavie but I know what’s really in your bottle. Your secret is safe with me.
The man, the myth, the legend. Ken the Draper trails mastermind.
1st place finish for newest CarboRocket addict, Senor Stark.
Way to rock it Tasha, you’ll get them next time.
1st, 3rd and 2nd respectively. Nice work girls!
Rick, your gloves are white not camouflage.
I must say the new Vassago team shorts look really good even with the over color coordination I have going on. Thanks Vassago!
I’ll take 2nd to Chris any day. The dude was on fire and could not be denied, congrats! Bob, you are looking way too comfortable in the tweetie chair.
Thanks to team Revolution for the killer cheese burger after the race and all the ICUP volunteers for putting on a great race.
