|It is tough to live by your own advice. And I'm a living example.
Every year I tell people that if they want to get the most out of the TR they should ride with their partner as much as possible before the race.
And this year, due to injury and personal reasons, I've had two partners drop out. My youngest brother fell down the stairs at home and broke his leg. My other partner had to pull out for personal reasons.
So here I am, 5 weeks from the start, with no partner.
Anyone interested in riding with me this year?
What can I bring to the table? I'm a very experienced mountain bike stage racer. (8 TransRockies and 1 BC Bike Race.) I'm competitive and was on the podium for 5 stages in 2010 and came 3rd over all in the 100+ category.
What am I looking for? Ideally you'd be either 45+, so we could race in the 100+, or 25+ and female so we could race in the 80+ mixed. In one day races my target, that I usually hit, is the winner's time plus 50%. (So if they finish in 2 hours my target is 3 hours or less.)
So if you think things might work out, drop me a line.
