Next year is probably going to be an ultra good year.
I had a friend call me and see if I would be interested in driving out to do the Leadman 100 with him and another guy. So, sure why not? Maybe I'm just having a mid-life crisis, that a Mustang convertible won't satisfy.
I have Douthat, and Shenandoah 100 on the list. I would like to hit up that Nittany valley Wilderness101 race some day (thats the area I'm from originally, and I've never ridden there!) I would like to do another 24 hour race too. My racing friends aren't into the 24 hour thing any longer. I blame a lot of that on Laird Knight. I hope the boys at Big Bear get things straightened out.I'll just have to see what happens.
I think the basic technique is to pull the arm warmers down around your wrists, and pull them back up, or stuff them in your jersey pocket.
I have no less than 3 'gore tex' type jackets. I think they all stink. To quote Newfy "I think its like wearing a garbage bag." I'll probably have one rolled up in my hydration pack to use if its raining.

The start temp at 6:30 AM was 38 degrees F
