WHAT HAPPENED TONIGHT WAS EYEOPENING. I had scouted out a course that took just over 19 minutes on my gravel bike. It's mostly fast, lumpy single track...
... easy to ride on a gravel bike.
I had no idea how much faster it would be on my mountain bike.
Nearly 3 minutes.
That's 15% faster.
Look, I absolutely L-O-V-E to ride my gravel bike for the many options it provides. But, when it comes to haulingass...
... nothing beats a specialty bike.
MTB on trails. Roadbike on pavement. Gravel bike on smooth dirt.
As far as race prep goes, the closer our A race gets the more we need to spend time on the bike we'll be racing. Bonus points if we can set up a similar course. Triple Bonus points if we can pre-ride the racecourse, a lot.
Here's a specialty product you may not not about, yet.
The thing I like about this chamois cream is it doesn't break down over time.
Some creams do, this doesn't.
Which means I end up using a lot less per application and I can ride a lot longer.
Don't let the name fool you ladies... think of the Secret deodorant commercial.
Plus, the DZ stands for the awesome Dave Zabriskie - look him up. Very cool cat.
