Well, after my hasty class-change in the Autumn Classic, I really did enjoy my first taste of XC racing.
The realisation that actually, it's just a load of other human beings on bikes was quite empowering (not all lycra clad superhero's!)
The vomit-inducing frustration as you realise you physically can't turn the pedals any faster as someone edges away from you is annoying and inspiring in equal measure
I'm going to stick with the "Male Fun" cat. and I reckon a 5% performance boost will see me in the top ten. So something achievable yet still pretty tough.
I plan on entering all 5 of the Spring Series (Spring Series Races) but that is slightly baby Freddie dependant (he's due three days after the March 03rd race )
I'm going to use this thread as a kind of motivational blog to keep me inspired and remind me that I've actually got something to aim for.
So please join in this thread to poke fun at me; tell me how well your training is going for whatever your aiming for; tell me you too have entered and to tell me how you're going to hand me an XL can of whoop-ass
I don't envisage having time or motivation to ride between now and about xmas, which gives me about 5 weeks to train although I'll try and do 20-40miles a week on the turbo to keep my eye in.
