Sitting inside on a snowy October morning I’m planning next season. Providing our economy doesn’t transform our nation into some version of The Road Warrior, 2009 should be a lot of fun. We’re planning on riding around Europe and catching some of the spring classics, climbing the longest sport climb in the world in Mexico, doing some proper bike racing, seeing how many canyons we can do on our tandem, and competing again at duathlons.
October, so far, has including mainly trying to milk the weather as long as it would hold. Knowing the trails around Park City could disappear any day, Sam and I did a long and highly aesthetic ride on Wed, connecting most of my favorite trails in Park City and Deer Valley. Friday a group of us got in a good 5 hours on the civies, and in between I’ve been trying to hit the crags without doing further damage to my shoulder. More nice weather is in the forecast but, at this point, I’m fairly excited about concocting a new training template and seeing what I can get done next year.
