today was the Mike Horgan hill climb in Boulder. the climb heads out boulder canyon on gradual inclines for 4 miles or so to sugarloaf road where things get nasty quick. 12% plus for a while, it then eases back just long enough to make you think you will be ok and then right back in your face. 8% at the least and up to 12 with no rest. none!! i feel like i am coming around a bit finaly and while i am not upset with my proformance today i am not realy pleased either. nervous energy played havoc with me the whole race. In a worse case this would cause anyone to have to simply stop. i did beat my times from training but i should have. carbon wheels and riding in the pack for the first bit should have made up that time. so while i did nothing great today i also did nothing real horrible.
ok enough of that. check out the race report.
after the race Linds, a friend in town and myself had a sweet late breakfast over looking the rockies. can't realy beat that.
hopefully my confidence will come around soon. i think that now that is the only thing holding me back.
no results yet but i will put them up for a good laph and ridicule from people who have been up the climb. if not. do like your mother said. if you can't say something nice don't say anyting at all!
results should be here soon: http://www.boulderracing.com/Horgan.asp
