So, I did not get into the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. I didn't make the lottery cut. Maybe, somewhere inside, I'm relieved because any mountain bike race, even a non-technical one, scares me a little due to terrain.
THEREFORE, I need a new physical goal for the year. Gotta write my ass off, but need a cycling goal, too. Ride and Write; ride and write.
Maybe the Minnesota mountain bike races. Maybe. But I'm old to break a bone on one of those switchbacks.
Maybe Sadie and Allie, my characters could still do Leadville if I went and volunteered.
Maybe do a 24-Hr road race again. Maybe a team, as Matt Busch suggests, for the 24-hrs of Afton.
