the Multi Laser Fall Grand Prix: a description of the experience
I raced on my bike in the cold ,hard rain,stage one, not fun, early break gone, chased in pain.worked hard and bonked, never caught the lead group, even got out sprinted by the wheel sucking troop. That's racing, its fun, even in late September.it started 6 months ago I can hardly even remember.
Stage two: the time trial, early in the day, I have a lot to learn here, that's all I will say.Stage 3 the Crit, ah ha, revenge is sweet. Hine and Hurley proved too strong to beat. The fun came back after straying for awhile, and once again, racing bikes gave me that smile.
Two more weekends to strive for success, then I'll hang up my wheels and take a good rest.With memories of pleasure and pain I'll reflect and start all over again, trying to perfect, my training and plans for two thousand and one. I am pumped, I am psyched, the racing is FUN!
