1.96 kilometers

4 09 2010

Was how far I travelled this morning before my first flat. Ridiculous. Thankfully, it was the only flat in the 70k’s I did, but it was still one too many in my books. Time to start looking at road tubeless.

also: HMBA rider Cameron Ivory finished 16th in the Junior world champs overnight. Thats a massive effort and explains why the only time I see him in the race is the start line. Fellow HMBA rider Trenton Day had a tough race and finished with a DNF on the last lap after snapping 3 chain ring bolts and possibly his chain ring. What kind of wattage is this kid putting out to be destroying drive trains like that? I am sure he was flying and it is a tough blow, but he is young, talented and will be a name to watch in the future.

I would have preferred 1.96km and a flat to the garbage I rode today. Was going to go out on the road bike and dad calls and says “hasn’t been that much rain in here, glenrock will be fine”.

Long story short, I would have preferred a flat after 1.96km so I could have turned around. Glenrock was a mess and I felt guilty being in there even though we stuck pretty much to the management trails.

Roadie tomorrow.

my front lawn is calibrated to match glenrock’s precipitation levels. Front lawn says soggy mess.

I can vouch for the fact that your lawn is infact calibrated correctly.
