Today- G Roadie TT- Clean Toilets- G Roadie Race

Never done a roadie TT before. Nothing wrong with experimenting. Really no different than getting chased by north iowa farm dogs... 30mph tailwind for 10 miles. The warmup/ leadout into the headwind was a treat.

When you finish biking by 9:30AM, time on hands, might as well go home and clean toilets... Right.

Random. SKOL.
Afternoon delight. Kicked off 56 mile grunt into the that wind I mentioned by fiddle farting around at my vehicle way too long (rookie). Seems like the neutral roll out wasn't neutral. I bled from the eyes for 20 miles fighting from last place in that wind. Made it up to commrad Ingvalson, was riding hard and taking pulls, much respect on the day.

After 30 miles of headwind, widdled down to group of 4. A Silver and Revolution appeared from behind. We were in for a roadie tactics. Roadie tactics? Yag. Only tactics I admire are those of a German named Jens. Like a farm dog on the loose, just go. So I did. That headwind turned to tail, and the roadie game was neutralized. Held off that group for 10 miles. Pleased.

Saturday wrap up, talk of couple lead pack types getting lost... Hmmmm.

Tomorrow. No idea what cards I'll have to play, probly a couple jokers. They count in the game called Old Maid.

Random- Looking forward to getting snared in the traps the Goons are working on (nothing to do with roadie/ gravel roadie). Fatbikes still don't count til it's motoroboat time.
