wait, is this thing on?
How excited am I for the Park City Point to Point race event this weekend?
About as excited as Rocky must have been for his fight with Clubber Lang.
My prediction for the P2P? Pain.
I’m gonna need a bigger boat.
You’ll be fine! Fiiiine! We’ll all be juuuuust fine!
I have never understood you folks who voluntarily sign up for “events” that involve long bouts of pain and suffering. Short term pain for the sake of fun I understand. But where is the fun in an event you know is going to hurt, a lot, for a long time??
i do not understand the draw myself. there is no explaining it. there is no selling it (or processing or buying it), only describing it.
but once you’re hooked, you’re hooked.
Was there bait on that hook? Because I’m with stevenbpt, this sounds like masochism.
Saturday morning I’ll be riding the Blackhawk loop with my wife and a few friends at an enjoyable pace with breaks for snacks/lunch and just to take in the scenery, and possibly a dip in the lake, and finish with the funtastic Bennie Creek descent. Yeah, I know, heresy.
But seriously, to each his own and I hope you have a good ride.
Pain is cleansing.
laxatives are cleansing but I’m not using them unless…well, let’s just leave it at that!
To the pain!
I predict Mr. T will be riding on your handlebar at some point during the race.
Does anybody have a 24 tooth cog I can borrow this weekend? Or 25, or 26? … Or 27
How about just getting a rear derailleur and cassette? But I guess that would eliminate your opportunity to solicit compliments on how tough you must be whenever you bitch about how hard that race was on your single speed.
mark, are you just a teensy bit tired of us singlespeeders?
just to be clear–have you ever heard me tout the ss, complain about it, call it out, or otherwise proselytize?
for the record, i don’t believe in the ss category. ride what you brought. i can’t help being old, so i’m in favor of age catgegories. but i inflict the ss thing on myself.
This attitude I agree with. You dance with the girl that brung ya. If you want to ride a singlespeed (I have one too), fine. But it’s your choice to ride it, so don’t bitch about how hard it is or how you want an easier gear. And don’t be all Jesus Freak to people who happen to prefer gears.
I think the SS class is a good thing. And I will bitch and moan all I want about how hard a race/ride is on a SS. And I expect people with gears to bitch and moan about how hard the race was with gears.
Racing bikes is hard no matter what you have.
Fair enough. Just don’t expect sympathy.
i have nothing else to say about this. but i wanted to see how skinny the comments would get way out here.
Funny I was wondering about the skinny comments before I read Dug’s last comment. I like suspensoin and gears. Race on!
If you come across me laying in a marginally responsive state off the side of the course, don’t say anything, just squirt a little water on my face or flip a rock at me with your tire (you know that trick you do) to wake me up a bit. You know, so I can get back to wandering towards wherever it was I was going before it gets dark.
want to borrow the lady bug backpack?
Embrace the suck.
Bring the pain! Please, just don’t bring the bonk….please?
Did you not know this when you signed up?
no. no i didn’t. someone said park city point to point, i figured skiing. so i signed up.
damn my eyes.
I have some waterfront property in Florida to sell.
steve, i live on the east coast of florida. where is this property i may want to purchase it. it is hurricane season, can i get a deal?
can one damn his own eyes? not sure on the protocol. please advise.
in a pinch. same with anointing and blessing oneself i think. go for broke.
Okay, so I officially found the limit to nested comments on wordpress, because I could not type a message in response to the SS thread.
I think the bitching about how SS’ers like to bitch has officially exceeded the amount of bitching that comes from SS’ers themselves. That’s a lot of bitches. Bitches.
Holy cow! I agree Aaron! You boys are worse than women! And, I hope you all got the memo to not wear white bike shorts. You really embarress me.
