Scott 24....

I am off to the Scott to race in a 6 man with the Night Lightning team.

Never met the guys - doesn't matter.
Not fit as I can be at the moment - doesn't matter.
Bike is not perfect at the moment - doesn't matter.
Busy with work at the moment - doesn't matter.
Only got 5 out of 6 for a 6 man team - doesn't matter.

What does matter is that I am looking forward to racing with a team, pushing myself hard and having a great time as we do the best we can together. I have rediscovered that little bit of excitement for riding which I temporarily misplaced after Canada. Keen AS!

Word is there were blizzard conditions which dumped 30cm of snow last night all through the alpine areas = one hell of a cold race coming up. Maybe I should start packing (note to self, WARM things, WARM things)!

Go well champ!

SMASH IT....

Rach said...

A few attacks?
I was thinking of it like this...
straight out of transition - ATTACK to get the surprise jump... as you come around and start the climb ATTACK as they will have nothing on the hills... as you drop in to the gnarly downhill section where the muppets hold off ATTACK to make the most of my mad skillz.... coming into the tabletops area ATTACK and take the whole area at speed in the air ... then once I am out of the ambulance ATTACK again. Finish it off with an ATTACK in the chute. Perfect lap.

Actually a dummy attack is a fake attack.

TR said...

Hope they have a heap of flat sections for all those attacks of yours.

Unless of course you were talking about you ATTACKING a tray of donuts.

Rach said...

Jaman, I know that is a trick statement.
There is no such thing as a dummy attack!!!

As for you Fraaaaank my attacks seemed to be just fine at GC the other morning. Dont make me name and shame.

TR said...

As I said.....flaaaaaaaaaaaat.

And while I am on an SS.

Talk us through the climbs as you saw them.

jaman said...

You are wise!
I have some small labels made up for you and TR.
Not sure how I can get them to you in time........?
When do you leave?
