Hey there,

Entered my first ever singletrack race this weekend. It was way over my head, and unlike anything I have ever seen, aside from TV when I call you techie specialists nuts! Anyhow, I was able to get though a lap early in the morning to see what the race would be like, and then one lap in the race itself. My division was to do three laps, but I knew that a second, and especially a third lap simply wouldn't have been safe for me after falling over the handlebars about 4 times already.

But since I was the biggest guy in the race, they did give me an XL jersey that was too large to fit any of the bikers in the local club! I don't know what the problem was, it fits me just fine! :)

BTW, you guys that ride those 6 foot drops and such. Your nuts! I'll take a nice ATV trail anyday.

If you can fit into a XL jersey, are you REALLY a Clydesdale ???? ;-)
