It's Saturday morning, raining in The Couv and perfect weather for an awesome mtn. bike ride!
I woke up this morning and felt like I'd been run over by a truck from our road ride yesterday. Lying in bed I realized I hadn't felt that way since going on climbing trips and putting in long, back-to-back days of sport climbing. Realization: I'm getting soft and need to step it up. Luckily for me the UBC Tuesday night criterium series commences in less than a month so that should be good for a solid drubbing once a week.
I'm feeling pretty good now though after having some breaky, letting my body wake up slowly and doing some bike maintenance. So the plan has materialized to head over to Lower Seymour trails shortly with KC to do some exploring for a few hours of fun.
Fact: I love watching the man that's called Sam Hill race his bike. So what better way to get psyched to go ride my mtn. bike than to watch an absolute genius of Australian lineage rip apart a World Cup course on his? I'm having touble embedding videos off Freecaster.tv but in the mean time check out Sam Hill's run at the UCI World Cup race at Schladming.
