Howdey Folks - its' been a while since my last post. Many have asked and if you were wondering about the 24hr of Big Bear. I pulled a U-turn on I77 just outside of Blythwood enroute to WV. Reason - well lets just say I wasn't into it mentally 100% nor physically. With a 9+ hr. drive ahead of me and doubt lingering into my psyche, I felt it was in my best interest.

Now 12 days later looking back it's probably one of the better decisions I've made in some time. Ten 24's & 3 12 hr solos with no DNF's. That's a streak I don't want to disturb. So now refreashed with some time off the bike. I've been pondering my next adventure. Will it be Cowbell 12hr Challenge or a recon ride for Off-road Assault on Mt.Mitchell. It will be a tough decision but a long mtb ride is in my future.

Till then

We would like to do a pre-ride of the Assault either July 8th or 9th. Let me know how that works for you.
I think Paul and Russ are going to race, so they may be interested as well. I assume the 9th would work out better for them because it is a Sunday.
Let me know.

The Cowbell sucks - those people don't know how to put on a race. I wouldn't even wipe my ass with their entry application
