Highlights from the Sea Otter pre-ride


Okay so decided with a few weeks left before the SOC, would be a good thing to maybe actually ride the bike. And why not pre-ride the course and kill two birds with one stone? Perhaps a bit aggressive for the little riding I've done, but I subscribe to the "Go big or go home!" theory. And of course I should've gone home. Had a lot of fun despite the pain and got some good blog material:

1) Sabine is pretty darn fast - we battled during the first half of the ride, her usually putting the hammer down on me. I kept trying to cover her attacks due to the testosterone in me, but I had no bidness trying to do so. Oh well. It was fun and she usually took good lines. I basically didn't see her on the climbs out though since I was fighting Uncle Crampy. Memo to self - ride bike more. Oh BTW, got the test results back from my doctor and you may be getting a phone call...

2) We waited to start the ride for Mo and Isaias. And then we hardly saw them on the ride. Hmm... Mo, when does the base building stage end?

3) Ms. Lorri of Velo Girls is a sandbagger! :) Cool pants though.

4) Alan despite his collarbone still feeling kinda funky since the break is still a monster. Can't believe he climbed that nasty climb in his 2:1 geared SS. Sure you aren't going to race this year? Although I have to admit I like the idea of going to the races to hang out and have fun and not worry about racing.

5) My spin sucks compared the Mr. Henthorn's. Or maybe the high brown socks just made his spin look mo' bettah.

6) Dawn is too intelligent for most guys...

    yeah, yeah! good to see you too, Gin!

    if you could've seen my spectacular fall into a bed of PO or my comical scoot down the beach you'd know I'm not a sandbagger. I'm a roadie, dude! I don't know what to do with rocks and ruts and sand.....

    and those pants are getting burned! I had a spectacular fall off the traill in slow motion. landed on my back with my head going down the hill still clipped in with the bike on top of me......into a forest of poison oak! the too big knickers didn't stay up and I scratched the hell out of my ass. thanks to Mo and Isiais for the Technu when we got back to the cars (no, I didn't let Mo rub it on my ass even though Isias was begging).

    muah! It was good to ride with you guys.

    Knowing that you were going to be there is what made me make the trip.

    Attack? me?

    Sorry about the crampys. I was getting pretty close to delirious myself so I had to keep moving. You know you are getting tired when you don't give a shit if the little sheepdog bites you or not.

    And sorry I didn't get to say a proper bye bye.

    Are you more surprised that Mo and Isaias were late, or that Mo has been base training for about 3 years now?

    Awww... I feel so special. Maybe we can rekindle our old schnookums and schmoopy talk...

    Okay, maybe not since you beat me into submission.

    "(no, I didn't let Mo rub it on my ass even though Isias was begging)."

    Man, that would've made for some nice blog material...

    I think it just did (make for some nice blog material).

    hey, can you get PO in your eye? my eye is all pink and itchy today (but nothing else is). how long does it take PO to cause a reaction? remember, I'm a roadie (not a sandbagger) and I don't know much about this kinda stuff.

     
  • At 3/26/2007, Blogger ginmtb said…

    Oh yeah, you can get PO in your eye - happens to most when they get the oil on their gloves and then wipe their eyes with their gloves. Yikes.

    Mine usually takes a few days to show up - so I avoid stuff like leg shaving, arm shaving, accoutrement shaving, etc. until many days have passed by. The eye though is basically an open wound so that can show up a lot more quickly. PO or pink eye - choose your poison.

    yep, a grand day!

    and for the record: males of mid to lower intelligence can still apply, as long as they shave and look good in their lycra.

     
  • At 3/26/2007, Blogger velogirl said…

    phooey! so how do you treat PO in the eye?

     
  • At 3/26/2007, Blogger Velo Bella said…

    accoutrement shaving?

     
  • At 3/26/2007, Blogger velogirl said…

    accountrements = earlobes.

    didn't you notice the hairy earlobes on gin! and I thought asian guys were supposed to be smooth!

    "phooey! so how do you treat PO in the eye?"

    I think you need to go see the doctor for that. Assuming your eye isn't swollen shut.

    "and for the record: males of mid to lower intelligence can still apply, as long as they shave and look good in their lycra."

    Cool I still have a chance...

    gin. base training stops this saturday. the real question is will you have a hall to see me come in last place?

    and for the record, i did 6 1/2 hours and 6,000 feet of climbing on the road the day before. come talk to me when you do a back-to-back weekend and then we'll have a conversation. ;-)

     
  • At 3/28/2007, Blogger MoJito said…

    um, that would be a hall PASS.

    my application is in the mail ;))

    Well yeah Mo let's see you do 3 months straight of remodeling a kitchen, working, raising a child, and getting about 5 hours of sleep a night. So there!

    Alrighty, I'll cut you some slack. That's more ride than I've done in a long time. Just thought it was ironic that we waited for you two to start the ride and then we never saw you.

    Sound like a whole lot of mass suckage!

     
  • At 3/30/2007, Blogger MoJito said…

    that's mass swallowage to you. it's no fun talking smack if you're ANONYMOUS. loser.

    gin. thank you for the slack. and trust me, it was ironic to me when we showed back up at the lot and not a single car, save Lorri's, was there!

    even more ironic... i might not wind up racing tomorrow. i think i have a sinus infection. a cold for a month straight has now morphed into a cold with a migraine. not looking so good.
