Of course, by the time we got back to town, it was getting humid again, so we're not there yet ... yet ...
In keeping with this week's theme, I've saved the biggest change for last. If you had told me a year ago that I would be ditching my road bike in August in favor of riding trail, I would have said you were crazy. Even into the autumn, as much fun as I was having with 'cross, I was still not an off-road rider.
That is, until Lou got me out to Palos. That day was the start, and I haven't looked back since!
Sooooo ... I SIGNED UP FOR A WORS RACE! And not just any race, but the "biggest" WORS weekend of them all: the Subaru Cup! I'm going to try my hand at the Comp category, which has an omnium for the weekend: a SuperD (time trial) on Saturday and a XC race on Sunday. I'm sure I'll get my butt handed to me on a platter, but the thing is, I can't wait!
I will still shave my legs, and will NOT put a visor on my helmet. And really, I just want to see how it goes -- at the very least, it will be a nice change of pace from the road scene, and will serve as good practice for the upcoming 'cross season. I may be taking my life into my hands, but isn't that the fun part?
