    Sometimes a check just don't count...

    If you happend to see/ pickup a lonely looking hand pump anywhere from mile 70ish to the finish I would gladly trade you for the check I got for it bein lost...

    Borrowed my trusty pump to a stranded gopher girl who only had blown CO2's... She went ahead and lost me pump.

    The pump is practically worn out, but it's been with me for a long time and pulled me out of many riddles.

    So if you found it, I'll trade you for the check I got for it's loss.

    If you keep it, I guarantee it will pull you out of riddles yourself.

    SPH- you were suppose to let the Pirate in. Now it's all cursed, unless jim shows. Then the rain will come.

    The best. Front fender don't fit if I wanted it too. ha

    Memorable might be one word for the roads turning to peanut butter at mile eighty -something. Wait, maybe that was an Almanzo flashback talking.

    Rain will just add to the epic suffering of under (okay non-) training.

    That first year was horrendous. Kudos to everyone that finished that year. This year might be wet in the afternoon, but at least it will be more than a few degrees above freezing.

    Tonight's final tune-up is going to include attaching an umbrella mount to the Karate Monkey. It could be a wet one -- especially for us slow-pokes.

    Friday

    For anyone planning on being in Red Wing the night before the race, bring your mountain bike and ride the trails. They are in great shape right now. Then, head down to Wheelhouse cycles and check in so you are ready to go on Saturday morning. Friday check in is from 7:00 to 9:00 at Wheelhouse cycles. 1932 Old West Main street.

    It was sure nice being on a bike with suspension, 2-inch tires, and MTB bars.

    I was wondering if the DOT would allow volunteer road service? Disc plow up that gravel even more will bring a uniform surface come May. ha.

    There is nothing like riding headwind gravel with your tires sinking, spinning, and rutting. Pure misery at it's finest.

    Conditions

    Spent a nice long day getting a healthy dose of reality in Ragnarok country yesterday. Road conditions were dry, rough and unconsolidated. Sweet spots were hard to find and there was virtually none of the smooth, packed in, limestone 'tarmac' we've come to love in the area. Best description is to imagine the roads being covered in truckloads of square marbles.

    I'm hoping for some rain between now and the race, as that could be the cure. The rain will soften the top layer of the road, allowing the vehicle traffic to pack in the loose stuff. 71 miles on it was bad enough, 105 is really going to hurt. Of course, dealing with changing and unpredictable conditions is the essence of gravel racing!
