Too Many Options

Tomorrow there is a lot going on if you are a cyclist:
1) Draper Days Road Race
2) Draper Days MTB Race
3) Deer Valley ICUP MTB Race
4) Long group ride up AF/Cascade with some of the core team
5) Frank/Crank/Dry MTB loop in the UC.

I can't decided. Leadville is only 2 months away. I really need some long rides but I want some redemption from the mid pack finish during the Draper race.

Too many options. I'm all flustered.

I think this video captures the race scene in a cool way. Check out the kid playing air guitar at the 3:35 mark. Kind of makes me want to go to Deer Valley tomorrow.

Tough call, but pretty sweet to have so many options, no?

As of Monday the Frank / Crank area was nice and green, the trails were nice and tacky with little dust.

You could always stay home and paint.

Well I am toying with the idea of riding home from DV. It would be a nice big ride to get ready for TWC. Interested?

Rick Sunderlage said...

Adam- I can't be gone that long but it sounds really good. So are you racing for sure? SS?

Rob- you can paint at midnight. Come ride instead.

KK- I must have been following your tracks all around there earlier this week. I agree, it's in great shape.

Grizzly Adam said...

Yeah I am racing. SS.

Still debating riding home though. I don't really want to fight the snow pack.

If you do Crank, take a crack at the TT. We need more results.

You know Rick, you could maybe figure a way to do 3 of the 5 events. That would be a fine Sat. I'm headin to DV.

Cool vid, definitely captured the vibe of race day. My stomach was getting a little pre race sick feeling as I watched the starting line scene and the start of the race. We all know that feeling all too well.
I liked the air guitar kid but I really thought it was the ending with the kids racing (in slo mo) that was really cool. That's why we ride (and race).

I didn't think Draper had an MTB race on trails day. The Stan Crane last week took the place of the MTB race that they had ON trails day a couple of years ago. I could be wrong.
