Off to West Texas

February 12, 2009

dscf0512It’s off to Terlingua, TX this weekend for the longest road trip of the spring season-The Mas o Menos 100k. The stars at night are definitely big and bright out there, I guess that’s what keeps me coming back to this place, along with the mountain vistas while riding the 31 mile loop, because otherwise, it’s a long boring drive and this place is in the middle of nowhere. I missed this event last year to compete  at the 24 hour race in Tucson, which resulted in the knee injury that kept me off the bike for 2 months. I am not recovered from the 12 hour race last weekend so I don’t plan on entering the Pro category and pushing gears for 62 miles. I’m feeling much better than I did earlier in the week, but not good enough for 2 passes over Tres Cuervos (the 1,000+ foot mountain climb) at XC pace. I’m bringing the single speed instead, and might enter the single speed category since it is only half the distance of the big boy race. I’ll be less tempted to actually race and just enjoy the ride on this bike as well. Check back Monday for a follow up.
