Friday Group Ride #3 Wrap
Well, see how much we learn about each other when we share like this. About half of you are trying to lose weight in 2010. The other half of you are trying to podium. Some for the bouquets. Others for the broom wagon. I like symmetry like that.
On the UCI side, it seems most of us want to see the doping procedures homogenized. Craig put in a word for 24-hour MTB racing, and that really piqued my interest. A number of you also mentioned race radio/live TV bans.
I wonder how many of you believe that, on some level, radios/TVs are cheating. What I think I hear a lot of you saying, based on your views on drugs/radios, etc. that you want to see the sport purified. Resolutions are about reaching for ideals, so that all makes sense. I like to think that every word we write (all of us) about these things, the closer they come to reality.
Like an hors categorie climb, realizing our dreams takes a long, long time, a lot of pedal strokes, a lot of sweat and pain. But that’s what we do, isn’t it?
