Mark Your Calendars

Friday, August 27th, 2010 is going to be"Hurt Rick Day".

After 7 long weeks off the bike, I think I'm finally ready to ride again. And nothing would make me happier than sharing my lack of fitness with all of you fast guys. (I was going to organize another Thur Night Ride World Championship Race, but I don't want to crash on my first ride back, so I'm playing it safe and staying on the road for now. But don't worry, the next night race isn't too far away.....).

Seriously, I need a good beat down to motivate me to get back into shape so please come and put the hurt on. But I'm warning you. I'm not going down without a fight.

Friday morning. AF Canyon. From guard shack to the summit and back down.

Every rider who beats me to the summit gets a free pair of FLY socks (that's a lot of socks!!!).

DFL to the summit gets a pair of used crutches.

** I reserve the right to reschedule if the Dr. does not give me the green light**

Bummed I can't make it. Don't worry, though, I'll make sure to ride some overpasses that day to get some climbing in.

I will bring fritters to celebrate.

If you were bed-ridden for a year I might win some socks.

Looking forward to it. Glad you will be back. For some reason I don't think you will be as slow as you think.

Rick Sunderlage said...

Dug- I'll throw in the wedge pillow too but you won't be DFL.

Kyle- have you found any good dirt down there yet?

KK- let's put some custard in a fritter for Brandon. We'll want to slow him down a little.

Brandon- You are a sweetheart for saying that, but I'll be plenty slow.

My only chance to even come close to beating Rick on a climb and i'm going to be out of town. Glad to hear your close to being back out there.
