Most of the time cycling is a lot of “hurry up and wait”. We spend a large portion of our time either totally stressed out trying to get somewhere early or sitting at our destination waiting for our next objective. Redlands has been no exception! So far I have spent just as much time worrying about being late as I have just sitting around with nothing to do. It’s an odd lifestyle.
Hurry up and pile into the van and now wait because we grabbed the keys to our hosts truck and not the van keys. Rage to the start and then wait because we are super early. You get the idea…
Today we started the Redlands Bicycle Classic with a wild circuit race. Flat out one minute up a steep roller and then send it full gas downhill through some neighborhoods and a bunch of corners. Good times!
Host housing has been amazing as it always is at Redlands and the morale on the team is high. It’s nice to be on a team where the riders and staff all get along so well!
Time trial at elevation tomorrow. Not super excited about that but it is what it is ha ha.
Also, Sam has an amazing mustache going right now so make sure to tell him how great it is and that he should definitely keep it as long as possible.
