what, man, it's going to be an interesting race... :nono:
Yeah I don't mean it to be a negative... "interesting" means positive for some, and negative for others...that would be way better than epic raging wildfires early this season. Bring on the rain, chilly temps, and legwarmers. Dehydration/cramps shouldn't be so bad this year
Shouldn't you be writing your first draft of an A/C thread or something?*headslap*
Rule No. 1 of MTBR, don't comment about weather before a race (especially if you're not doing the damn race), else you'll face the wrath of ST/CO!!!!!!!!!!
That was epic suck. I was fine while I was moving, but as soon as I crossed the line and stopped, I pretty much shut down. I think I had the beginnings of hypothermia creeping up on me.I don't know, better than sunny and hot... I did that Old Fashioned mt race last summer in the rain and I loved it... But then again it wasn't in the 40's
Yeah. I see 46High / 32Low with 30% chance of rain. Scattered T-storms. Different from you 80%.I predict 80% chance that weather prediction will change on Friday.
It was probably due to the stopping more than anything. I was fine, but when I stopped I got cold. Solution is to not stop and keep moving. Plus pack gear just in case. The way I see it this a long ride and I am looking at roughly 6hrs ride time in good conditions. Given how long I will be on course I will pack gear to deal with it.That was epic suck.

Yeah I'm going off of weather underground (check what they say)... I failed to look at other sites before I posted... and you are correct weather channel, accuweather all have a more optimisitic forecast...Yeah. I see 46High / 32Low with 30% chance of rain. Scattered T-storms. Different from you 80%.
And Bart is spot on... We won't know the weather till Friday. The storm could roll in friday or wait till sunday. Or just be alot weaker than expected. I will just watch and expect anything from 70F an sunday to cold and rain. Heck if it rains I might do better if all the rest of the riders give up. I will not give up. Conditions may slow me down, but I will not give up.
