For some reason I decided to sign up for the Mt Snow singlespeed race, coming up bright and early Saturday morning. Couple things: my blinglespeed is hurting right now, needs new brakes which I should have by Saturday but I might not be able to ride before race time (smart). Second, it’s been raining a bunch which will definitely make for some, uh, interesting course conditions. In general I like riding in gross conditions but climbing wet greasy technical stuff on the one-gear isn’t that much fun. And finally, I found out this morning that we’re doing four laps. That’s the same number as the pro men. WTF? I’m guessing 2.5 hrs which I bet will be about .75 hrs too many. Shot the studio down in Boston yesterday: good models, good clothing, good crew, good times. A. Craig from Mt Ste Anne, straight out off the Canonet.
