Maybe, maybe not

It's a week out from the Uxbridge Icebreaker and I saw what I expected to see for conditions. The website was updated with these pictures of the course. Lots of snow left.

The weather should be right to melt more this week but that could be a bad thing. The ice that is rideable could become to soft. These are in the order that we will see them. This race has always been an option and I am still pretty sure I'll be heading south on Sunday morning.

One new highlight this year. Cash prizes for the top 3. HMMM. This is where the bike option comes in. Lots of road sections which means cross bike but bobsled run and some of the crazy sections would be much more enjoyable with a wider tire of a mountain bike. The thought of a single speed is pretty much gone but the potential of beating up an Anthem is there now.

They list the course currently 90 percent rideable. I'll be checking in daily to see if there are updates all this week.

Time for work.

I'm very torn.
I don't know whether to go or not. Such a long drive for crap conditions...

me too - i'm heading over that way regardless, so I may as well ride

as long as I don't get hypothermia again I will be happy with however I place - just another training ride for more important races

it's going to be messy!
