TWO DAYS AFTER BEING RUN INTO THE FINISHING BARRIER AT SAN DIMAS, going 25mph, the deep bruising is starting to surface on the arm that took the punishment.
It could have been a lot worse.
Dude, came over on me and closed the door even though he knew I was there. It happened so fast, that it went to slow motion... that kinda thing. I leaned my tires away from the base, twisted my torso and clipped the top of first barrier hard bouncing into him and back towards the barriers.
Packthink moved our galloping herd back to the center of the wide road.
I bit my tongue, which is pretty easy when you sponsor yourself.
Couple a guys praised my skills.
Another chewed the lugheaded rider out.
We rode on.
At the bottom of my posts is something like this: 20/60. It started out as 10/30, but then that became easy.
So, now it's 20/60.
20 pull ups.
60 push ups.
...I was damn glad I've been doing pull ups and push ups, figure that alone saved me.
