I've officially crawled in.
Time = money
Speaking of time and timeliness...
Looking forward to looking forward to things. Two races that WILL sell out quickly will be opening up their registrations in the next few days. The Pisgah Mountain Bike Adventure Race registration comes online this Friday at HIGH NOON.
King of Pisgah (which I'll probably fail to complete... again) with Watts as my partner.
The other guaranteed sellout is the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek.
Faster Mustachy. It also almost guarantees that at least one of us will have a hangover on the day of the race. Not the best plan, but we like the odds. Something something underdogs.
Registration for the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek opens at 9:00AM on Saturday.
Keep in mind, both of these races sell out in minutes (although any period of time can be measured in minutes if you can count that high or have enough decimal places). I've been to every PMBAR since 2004 and every single one of the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek races for a good reason, which is pretty much the same reason people crawl all over each other to get into them. Totally different events that do an incredible job all over the spectrum of what makes a race worth going to.
Despite the fact that both of my partners for each of these events have a propensity to wear skinny jeans and Vans when they leave the house (on days other than Halloween), I'm looking forward to seeing just how good (or bad) we might do.
I've still got to figure out what to do about The Icycle. I've been known to make a fair number of poor life decisions there. Ditch fights, broken ribs (multiple times), lost phones and keys, stolen cars (mine), morning drinking, practice runs in pajama pants... this:
But it's not. So, go and race XC and do what I do and give up on any idea of staying in an upright condition for the rigid night downhill or focus solely on sobriety and just race the DH or forgo all racing and focus on my specialty?
