Mountain biking up Payson Canyon this morning was sweet: Lots of good singletrack climbs, fun descents and a good portion of doubletrack that, according to Jesse, is similar to the course at 5-Mile. Speaking of Jesse, all I can say is that dude is fast. Uphill, downhill and flat to rolling terrain, he just rode away from me. My legs felt good but I just couldn't hang. Given that we're in the same age group, I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't start out racing beginner. Thing is, I figure I can do two solid laps so the thought of only racing one leaves me feeling like I'm getting shortchanged. Since I'm just out to test myself and have fun I suppose it really doesn't matter if I'm at the bottom of the Sport field. At least that's what I'll be trying to convince myself this week! Many thanks to Jesse for letting me tag along today. I'm looking forward to more rides this year as the higher elevation trails like Bennie Creek and Blackhawk open up.
So after today's 3 hour ride my legs are pretty smoked. It was a solid week and I'm glad to finish it healthy. As far as weather goes I couldn't have asked for better. These past few days have been fantastic: Sunny, blue skies and temps in the 60's and 70's. Very nice. Let's hope it continues!
