In order to celebrate this amazing accomplishment, I am joining Karel for Speed Week as he participates in 8 races in 10 days. This is my favorite time of the year as I become a cycling groupie (with Campy) and surround myself with die-hard professional cyclists in GA, South Carolina and North Carolina. We will be traveling until next Sun and visiting lots of towns for lots of exciting races. Tomorrow is the BIG race of the week which is the Athens Twilight Criterium. With a invite-only registration protocol, 150 cyclists will be racing at max for 90 min on a 1K course in downtown Athens....oh yeah, at 8:45pm!!!
Right now Karel is warming up in the hotel room on the trainer and building up a little lactic acid for his 3:45pm Computrainer heat. The Computrainer finals provide each rider with a number based on ranking (they ride 3K of the Athens Twilight course on the trainer) which will be used for the corrals tomorrow night.
Campy and I are looking forward to exploring Athens and what a great way to relieve the stress that I have carried with me for the past 3 years. YIPPE!!!
Doesn't this look exciting????
