What we did today/what is that like?
Yuipica road race, which is six laps of a 14-mile circuit screaming downhill with 152 dudes followed by a long, twisty, 4% climb, and on the final lap we go up a 5-mile climb at 7%.
How did I do?
Lolz – 76/153.
Quote of the day
“Thicccc is kwik”
Explanation: Cyclists as a group are body dysmorphic since weight affects performance so much. If you’re ‘bigger’, you’re ‘thic’. To denote the degree to which you’re thic, you keep adding ‘c’s to the end of thic.
Well, my teammate, who is pretty damn thicc, casually tapped out 385+ watts at the end of Yuipica and embarrassed some climbers. As we all stood around him at the finish line he muttered ‘thicc is kwik’, which I’m REALLY tempted to use as Gravel God Cyclings motto.
What I hated about today
Putting on race bibs in the back of cargo vans. They’re so sticky at the end of the legs that to pull them on I have to arch my entire torso up in the air which sends my dude into vie6
