First race of the year coming up! 13 more sleeps.
This will be my 12th Paris to Ancaster (in a row)! Through thick and thin I've always managed to get to the start line of this one. For all the gory details read my 2016 race report.
|Me in Better Shape|
I've managed to get out and do some decent outdoor rides! In between being sick and nonsense, my legs actually feel pretty darn good. I hesitate to say "ready" because this race is so early, but I feel like I could have the legs for something decent.
Still heavy, tooooo heavy. This will probably be my highest P2A weight in a bunch of years. That will hurt on the climbs.
Also I didn't register in time for Wave 2, so I'll be relegated to Wave 3... by the time we get to some of the course, a lot of people will have beaten it up and churned up the squishy mud. Still hoping there are some good opportunities for drafting, but presumably each wave has a little less.

I don't expect to crack the top 500 this year... but top 50% would be nice, we'll see if I can find it.
I am! Let's do it! Sprinnnng!
