WE CAN'T WIN THAT RACE

WE CAN'T WIN THAT RACE

TWO YEARS AGO, when I was going for my PR at Leadville, I was toying with the idea of a special jersey.   It would contain something very stealthy.  I tabled the idea...

... because I wasn't sure it work.

Now, of course, the concept is cutting-edge.

Which makes this idea...

... just like every race we stand no chance of winning.

What was the jersey idea?

Sewing in a sleeve to hold my hydration bladder inside the jersey vs a camelbak-style pack...

... which is exactly what the winner, and other pros, used at Unbound last week.

I wanted it because it seemed like it would be more secure, not bouncing around over rough terrain.

Aero wasn't on my mind at all, which was the claimed gotta-have benefit for the 200 mile gravel race.

Clearly it works,
clearly I gotta take a crack at it.

Which brings up the point about racing...

... we can't win a race, ever, if we don't show up.

Take the chance,
see what happens.
