BCBR Day 2
The best thing about finishing fast is you get easy access to the bike wash, and no line at the showers. After a nap, it was time for a nice massage and then to dinner. BC Bike Race has a crew of traveling gals that rub out all the soreness all evening every evening. Every evening after dinner there was a video (below) and a slide show along with tons of free swag and awards.
So after two days, I realized my bike was set up for midwest racing (stiff) and needed some serious adjustment. I let air out of the lefty and the rear shock. I also adjusted to propedal down for the first time ever. This is real mountain biking. The damage to my wrists was already done though, by the end of the week my right wrist was basically stuck in a handlebar holding position. Yes, I was wearing a sweatshirt and stocking cap in July, it was great.
Camp was right on the water and it continued the downpour all evening. Perfect for sleeping.
