the eve of SSUSA

I have done nothing to train for this and I have never ridden the trails in Stowe. It is going to be a surprise at every corner. I will push and hike and probably puke but I have every intentions on finishing. I plan on giving it all I have and riding at "my" race pace. I have thoughts dancing in my head on giving a run for the prestigious title of DFL. I earned it once in an alley cat race. This one, I don't know. It is hard to imagine that I could possibly be the slowest in say 200 +/- riders. Who know. I do hope to finish.

Once this race is over, I will start gathering the things I need to set the Voodoo back up with some gears and get to training for Tour Divide. Until then, I might have a few more slower paced rides in the single speed flavor. Once it is setup for touring, I will be all about miles not trails. Commuting will pick up to a higher level than it has been. I will also plan out some nice bikepacking trips. That's what excites me the most.

Congrats on the finish. Will there be a post-SSUSA post? I hope so!
