Gearing Up

February 4, 2010

The Dirty Dozen 12 Hour MTB race at Warda is right around the corner. The herd is assembled. My gear is packed. The caveman energy bars are in the fridge. The Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale is awaiting deposit into the escrow account setup for a friendly little wager between team Caveman Productions and Team Currently Known as Awesome!. The Team Currently Known as Awesome! is a group of 4 low life aggie alum whose only goal during this race is to defeat Team Formerly Known As. Little did they know that Caveman would have a bone to pick with them and wager a 6 pack of beer as to whether he could finish the race within 2 laps of them. Can I actually do it? A one man show against 4 decent riders for 12 hours straight? Physically, I believe I can. I have unprecedented faith in my primal diet and fitness. I’ve stayed disciplined since cross season ended and have all but eliminated processed carbs from my diet, eating mostly large amounts of fat and protein. I’ve gotten at least 9 hours of sleep every night. I’ve put in quite of few hours of base training, and just as much effort in weights and sprinting. You never know what’ll happen at races like this though. Crashes, bike failure, acts of God, etc. It will be an interesting way to keep motivated and Take it to the Limit. Who cares about the solo category?! If I can actually pull this off and snag a six pack of Shiner from these scum sucking aggies it would be a victory for the ages! Tune back in next week for the exciting recap!
