Once the bug bites..
So the cycling season is upon us, for some it starts in September with the Spring League, a great initiative from Lights by Linea…for others it starts in October when the annual One Tonner is on the 19th Oct…for some its Double Century…and for quite a few its when some serious mountain bike races start like Karoo to Coast, Wines to Whales etc..
Im no where near race ready…im suffering so much on my rides that its depressing…but theres only one way to get better and that’s to ride the bike and train smartly…im fairly confident i’ll be up there and race fit by the the time One Tonner starts in October. One Tonner is a 160km brutal road ride, most people use this as a training ride for Double Century which is a 200km ride at the end of November…however every year these mortals that enter One Tonner for prep for Double Century does not work out…I witness teams at One Tonner get destroyed by the wind, heat and politics every year…once we reach 120km, its very hard and a tough ride is on the forecast for the last 40kms, evens for the most seasoned cyclist this race will test you on all limits…this race is a mixture of racing and having the endurance, such a tough combination..anyways i gotta race this event because last year this race spat me out the back..
September sees the Lights by Linea league taking place…another great initiative…in addition to this crit racing there will be more crit racing at Killarney starting on 17 September…which is brutal…im looking forward to that again…the pain, the hard and fast bunches…i got so much work to do before this kicks off otherwise i wont last one lap…Faizel jets off to compete in The Amashova in Durban, hoping to have a chance at racing the World Champs in the Vets category, that a great goal!!
Upwards and onwards, the training is kicking in..im not fit as i want to be but lets see by next week where im at..it can only get better, thats what i keep saying…
