After long analysis of the email threads today, this is what I am proposing, shot me down if needed but it seems to fit all criteria.
1) Ride will depart from the Mosquito lot at 5:45.
2) Come equipped with your ride of choice: Highly recommended to have both front headlight and rear flasher or red light.
a. There will be pave sections
b. There will be unpaved sections
c. There will be flat sections
d. There will be several really steep hills thrown in for good measure
(good to my word the Sunkyung will make its FT3 debut)
3)Post ride food and hydration are up in the air. I am posting from home with power at the current moment, however that has fluctuated moment to moment, so I will address the power situation throughout the day tomorrow at the Knot.
4) Ride Leader: Again a proposition - we make several loops in and out of the Mosquito Lot. Each FT3 member showing with an idea for a loop gets to lead one of the aforementioned jaunts. All routes will begin and end at the Mosquito Lot. Points for variety of terrain, creative use of road and trail network, rideability, and flow. A winner will be crowned post ride.
4) I see this as good growth from our "year one winter urban assaults": FT3 has shown good ability to adapt and grow!
Sundays cross report, well my day was summed up in the squeaking sound the brakes made as I grounded to a halt. The others, although faring better than I, all seemed to think that the energy sucking race was ridiculously taxing and not FT3 finest hour and how the hell does Alex Candelario go so flipping fast?!?!?!?!
Anyway, I can't tell if this guy is enjoy the race or not, might be a strategy I employ for future cross races?
Until we ride,
