HEY THERE RACERS... it's The Old Diesel's helmet checking in. I can accurately report that he's been working his fanny off since getting shelled last month at the Cactus Cup...
... remember that pathetic video he posted?
Oh, he was completely shattered.
He was overconfident... thought he could handle the heat, thought his legs were ready for that unrelenting desert terrain, thought he'd show the yokels his CA style...
... oh, he had that beating coming.
But, good news!
Yesterday he casually mentioned posting a good time on a famous climb. He PRd it. Yeah, broke a 7 year old record by 10 seconds. I know, it's not much on a 54 minute effort, but give him a break. His carbon is a bit dated.
Anyway, it would be a good sign, except...
... in a celebratory moment of weakness he pounded a pint of McConnell's.
What a dummy!
Today wasn't much better, sure he fasted until Noon, ate a light lunch...
... but, then Surfergirl busted out the chips and the kids all came over for barbecue and pie and more ice cream.
He's going to wake up fat and ticked off tomorrow.
I like it when he's like that, because we ride fast. Probably too fast for a Monday, meaning his legs are going to be heavy for the Tuesday Morning World Championships... and even worse for DRTY WDNSDY.
Oh it's gonna be a helluva week... him wanting to undue his bad deeds.
Personally, I'm not sure the old guy has it in him to post a fast time in 3 weeks at the Dirty 30. Especially not if he keeps falling off the wagon.
The only hope is something he keeps in the house. I'm not sure what it is exactly, but he says it's made his legs feel like magic. Maybe that explains the PR Saturday... and being able to pound it hard last Tuesday and Wednesday?
I think it's this thing he's raving about, the HyperVolt...
If it is... don't share his results with others. Just get the dern thing for yourself and keep it on the downlow.
