And Stanford MTB Classic. So my little bicycle trophy thingy will be missing piece #2. I'm not keen on buying and having the piece if I didn't even ride the event. Feels a bit like e-biking.

Me, but I'll be sitting with my fat ass among the backmarkers with my very noisy knobblies.

 

It's going to be warm

I still look at the hole in the middle of last year's one ... irks my sense of completeness

 

Spent today cooling my heels watching youtube vids of crit tactics and running to the loo with a gastro bug that everyone says is 48 hours .... don't sit in my draft on Sunday, you have been warned.
