xXx Racing-Athletico Spring Training Camp...in San Luis Obispo, March 8-15 2008..
Most of my Team has fully documented this week in finite detail and anything I would write in a journal style would probably just be a lame paraphrasing of some great writing. We all experienced the same things,...We all left the parking lot in the mornings filled with the same anxiety's for the days Itinerary with all our pockets filled to the brim with a shit ton of snacks...We all endured, We all grew as riders, friends and people...
Here is the raw Data.....
Eight days, almost 500 miles in about 30 hours of riding time. That included several monster days in the mountains, totaling more than 38,000 feet of climbing.
Reading that ...I realize that this was the most challenging thing I have ever done physically or mentally...period, I would roll into the parking lot at the end of these rides in tears...Everything I had was left out on the roads surrounding San Luis Obispo.....
Other than Stocky's misfortune, which was heart breaking ...I loved it all...the Blood, Sweat and Tears...The full on belly laughs, the all day diet of Cliff products, the windy roomate, the way food tastes after riding for 6 hours, getting to the top of the most redonkulous climbs with your friends cheering you on, Then descending like a mad bomber at 50+ mph..........I wouldn't change a thing......Seriously, Best week ever
