I spent 5 hours in Jamesburg today, setting up the HPCX race course. Mostly I did real man’s work, like taping the course and hauling lumber. I also got a chance to preride the course. On a whim, I decided to race tomorrow on Jenks’ bike and in Rob’s shoes, despite the fact I have been offroad no more than 5 times in my life.
This is our 2nd year at HPCX, which means that I have to wait 16 more years before I am any good at it. I FEAR this course. I want to run like a little girl from its barriers and scary turns. I want to run to Florida or Arizona, away from this course, so I can be as far as possible from its muddy claws and concussive tree branches.
Well done, Mark.
