I am hungry. And not for food. I am starved for a quality enduro effort. It’s been too long. Old Pueblo went well for me, but the Rim Ride was ended early due to mechanicals, and the KTR was just…odd.
Last year the E12 left me empty and frustrated. And so, it is fitting that this year it has the opportunity to satisfy a dire need. The danger in all this, is that something goes wrong, and then the slippery slope of mental and physical burnout starts presenting itself.
Rest assured though, my mind is in a good place right now. And I think my legs are too.
I feel excited and even somewhat restless about competing again. It is a feeling I haven’t had about a race for quite a while. And so, I am going to harness these good vibes and channel them into the pedals on the 23rd. In the meantime it is business as usual.
