Soon I will be making my usual pre-race ‘must do’ check-off list. Little things like ‘secure a well-padded laptop shipping box’ to send my work computer home in from Banff. And critically important things like replace the BB and drive train will go on this check-off list.
I have a new frame bag, its oversized and easily holds 4L (3L bladder and 1L soft bottle) plus assorted tools etc. Of course now that I have it I can see how it could be slightly ‘tweaked’ to be even better…….
Still planning on a sub 30 lbs bike + gear but need to get this and that gear choices finalized….
Still trying different combinations of riding shorts
and chamois creams but also testing pain numbing ointments as I know the problem (impacted hair/follicles) will rise its ugly head around Lima MT regardless of what I am wearing or sitting on………
Sometimes, but not really, I think I should just chuck it all and drift over here…
Yes, yes the smooth still current of the last year+ TDR prep is changing and building momentum, to a faster flow, soon to be a nose-dive over the lip of the trail head in Banff……….
