Fall Training for the Iceman Cometh!

I went on a 6 hour MTB ride down to the Minnesota River Bottoms trail on Sunday morning. It was beautiful! I left my house at 6:00am, with my HID Night Rider light system in tow. I stopped at Starbucks for a double shot on the way. This is standard, and a definite must for cold weather rides. It was a great ride, and was my longest since the 24Hr World's. I'm trying to prepare for the Iceman Cometh in 2 weeks. I understand that this is a 27mile rage fest, and the conditions may be cold + nasty. It usually takes me 27 miles just to warm up my legs so, this isn't really my cup of tea, but it should be good fun anyhow. I'm heading out to the UP with Chuck and his family. I'm taking my son Jacob along as well. My prego wife is staying at home to rest, as she is due on Nov. 30th. Chuck is getting VIP passes to the Subaru/Gary Fisher party after the race. We may get to drink beer and rub elbows with Ryder Hesjedal. We also plan to hook up with the Bell's beer boys. I hear they throw an outstanding bash after this race, not to mention that they are also scary fast on the bike. Should be a great time!

A double shot? Ya got to be kid'n me! The Iceman race is normally a bitch from what I have seen and read. I have been in e-mail contact with Nat Ross over the past few weeks, and he is planning on heading to the race. I bet Cameron Chambers will be there also. You can take 'em! Have fun. Look forward to reading the recap.

Ahhhhh....I sure am enjoying the off season :-)
