In less than 24 hours, I will “officially” step on the scale again. I will then gather the numbers from the VeloLosers and we will know who the prologue champion is. I’m not going to say I am going to win tomorrow, much like Cav in Milan SanRemo – I could… we will see. It’s all based on %. I’m right in the middle of the pack on overall weight, which is good and bad. Bigger guys have to lose more for 1% – but bigger tends to lose a bit faster. We will see.
We did pick up another contestant – Alex will be joining us. He’s a newbie to cycling, but his wife has been riding a bunch and has convinced him he needs to ride a century. He’s skipping the prologue and joining us on the first stage. Armed with his new bike and some clipless pedals, he’s ready to go! Now, if the eastern side of the US would get sunny, maybe we could add some velo to our losing. As it is today – back to the gym for some eliptical action. I did 1/2 my workout backwards yesterday. Left my legs a bit wonky… so to get them back in phase, I walked up 20 flights of stairs… not a good idea!
Back to the grind….
