Calm before the storm

"I'm hear to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum!" The best line ever from Rowdy Piper. I think I just admitted to the world that I used to watch wrestling. Let's push the Used To part.

The car is packed and I'm probably more relaxed than I've ever been for a long race. No panicking about having everything ready and on what time I will be at the venue etc.

This is probably my favorite of the 24 hour events. The course always has more singletrack and alot more climbing compared to the SS course. I'll get a lap in late this afternoon. I've heard that this is one of the best courses ever laid out by Sean Ruppel.

The only unfortunate thing for me this weekend. The Olympic mountain bike race is on this weekend. I'm hoping that Adam will try and live feed it on Saturday night on the movie screen. I'm used to only seeing about 20 seconds of every movie as I went through transition.

I'm hanging in campsite 75 and the team name is Cranked. Stop in for a beer. I'll have lots of pictures and a race report up on Sunday/Monday. Maybe even some hardware to add to the collection.

That bubble gum line is hilarious! It sounds like something Riky Bobby would say. Adam IS showing the MTB race on the big screen and I'm bringing the lap-top, internet connection for race updates and some movies. If you want to watch some movies tonight or use the net come over and hang out with us.
