Wilderness 101 pre- report ('10)

I wish I had more time to write, but I don't. I'm starting the drive out to Colorado today for the Breck Epic and crushing of Thom Parsons at the end of the month. I'll up date this thing with a bunch of enthralling pictures of the Midwest as I grumble across the country.

A big 25t cog from Endless Bikes just came in the mail, and I put my spare Race King on my front wheel, so now my bike should be ready for the mountains.

The 101 went great. I rode with the Pflug, Matt Ferari, and J-Pok for the first 60 miles before I got tired and dropped off. I ended up finishing 6th SS, but I was still able to break 8 hours. It was an awesome race, and I dropped over 20 places and 2.5 hours from my finish last year. I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of endurance racing.

And now I need to go buy some oil so that the Grumbler doesn't blow up on the trip.

sure you don't wanna run the 38 X 20? Run what ya brung what ya brung.

And I will conserve all my energy during the race just so I can blog-crush you every night.
