Ok so i have not raced xc since 98, But this sunday i will be back at it, sure im in no shape to race xc even in masters, the weathers set to be rain and more rain and the former world cup venue in plymouth im sure will be a tech mud fest, Just to add to it i have sold my soul, and will return to SPD pedals! Now thats also a first since 99... Best of all i will not get the shoes and pedals till the day of the race so its going to be intresting..lol
So why race? To do it all! thats mtbing! 4x, marathon, dh and now xc all done this year along side the freeride/ all mtn trail riding, love it, plus i hope to ride the xc bike all winter and come in to 2010 stronger and ready to hit a wide range of events again... wish me luck!
