I will mostly whine about my pathetic Yankee TT results in this blog report but I guess I deserve the dead last result in my class, 50+ Expert. You see there was this race called Barry-Roubaix and I worked hard on it all winter long, then there was the fact that while we had average snowfall for the winter it was never good for cross country skiing locally. XC skiing is my winter drug, like biking is in the summer. The drug keeps you reasonably fit and also helps keep the winter weight manageable. Even riding the 616 Fatbike occasionally didn’t help me much. Then spring comes and delivers record rain, cold and more winter. I know, I know, everyone was in the same boat, I just got lazy because it wasn’t perfect outside.
So why you ask would I sign up for a Fatbike Beach race in Grand Haven the day before the Yankee TT. Good question. I don’t have an answer for that one. Stupid? I didn’t want to be a sandbagger by dropping down to Clydesdale even though I am one and always will be one. So I went for a Sunday drive. At least it was nice out!
Now, about my other teammates, they continue to impress. Tim Curtis was the top old man on this team today, Jeremy is making waves in the Elite class joining Jeff and giving him a run for his money. Then there is Marnie, another podium. I have lost count now. She has a lot of hardware at home.
Here are the numbers:
Rick 26th LAST!
