So what's the speed of failure you ask? -------- 23.5 mph
Yeah, 23.5 mph average....that was the "failure" speed of the day. Today was the first weekly "training" crit up in Lehigh. If you've read the book Ten Points you know a little about this event. To put it short it's a weekly training crit that on an given Thursday has 5-6 pro racers, 12-18 ex pros and even a National champ or two thrown in here and there just to piss me off......then there's the other 40-50 fat, out of shape want to be racers that just want to hold on for dear life......that's where I come in.
Long story short I lasted 17 laps, 17 F*CKING LAPS (each lap being a mile) of the 25 mile race. I did out lasted half the field (75 riders started) but that's all I had. Even thou I only had the goal of sitting in the whole race.......mission failed.
Pist, annoyed, disappointed, pist and more pist.....that's where I sit typing this. I knew I was gonna get my ass handed to me.....but I thought I finish the f*cking race.
Time to stop the fucking around......racing season started three hours ago....and I was not ready!
