So, Who are you loudmouths?


Recommended Posts

Me?

 

I talk a lot of trash in here but am just a slow 49 year old who likes to ride and race. I have no idea what I am talking about most of the time.

 

Here is a picture from 2 days ago, new years day gp at Washougal. Track, trails and endurocross in a 60 minute format. I finished 9th out of

64 40 amateurs.

I think I'm pretty modest, but I can hold my own in a race...

 

You're like me.  Well except the whole "holding your own in a race" thing.  Why do I only get arm pump while racing?  Here is my 4 point race reality.

 

1. Bad start (often involving a stall and/or crash)

2. Pass everybody in sight; what's that tingling feeling?

3. Arms on fire, drop anchor

4. Suffer to end.  End up midpack.

I'm more like... Your problem with arm pump, my guess, adrenaline....

1.) Good start

2.) Let a few faster guys pass me cleanly and sprint away

3.) Feel good by the 1.5hr mark

4.) Start reeling the faster guys back in for passing
