June 8th Endo Race

After 3 weeks of every excuse for not showing up to the last 3 Endo races. Got the Mistress and I to the site for this weeks O2 debt location. The new place being Macintosh Mills which is an interesting place. Report on that later in the season.

Got a little lost finding the place. So of course had little time to get organized and ready. Nil for warm up which would come back to bite me later. Plus remind me that 3 years off equals lousy fitness. Especially when you add in Canadian Shield rock and hills. After a quick line up we where off.

It was to be a 4 lap course and never having ridden the area was riding blind. So took the first lap easy as per my usual plan. It was a good plan as the short but sharp hills showed that my climbing skills where rusty and leg strength was low. So despite the climbs sucking high on the suckage scale the course was fun. Technical and some downhill sections.

Since my climbing was not helping I simply set out to be consistent and ride well. To that end I achieved that. And it was hot and humid as well. I managed to drain 2.5 L of water no problem in the 4 laps. And after 40 minutes I was done. Then after the usuall post race milling around and putting bikes on cars. It was off to Brockville for food.

Post race analysis shows that I need to do more hill repeats. And have already begun getting that done.
