Tim, Kent and I went on a pre-ride of the GORD mtb leg again tonight, and the wind was howling.
If the you are riding into a 25mph headwind and your computer shows 20mph, are you riding as hard as if you were really going 45mph?? It sure feels like it!
We hammered hard tonight, and got it done it right at 45 minutes. I really don’t think that many people will do it faster than that on race day. That doesn’t mean that I think that I am fast or anything, but I know the course and was riding hard. I just can’t imagine anyone doing it in under 40 minutes, so come on you guys…….make me eat my words!
The entries for the event are surprising me a little bit, still zero entries in either male or female 16-18 age group. Another surprise is that one of the divisions with a lot of entries is female 40-49 age group. And in one last statistic that makes me scratch my head is that less than 10% of our entries are local to the Prescott Area……hmmmm.
I was glad that Tim came along tonight, as he and his wife have decided to enter in the Relay division in the GORD.
