Rocky the Squirrel update: I now have one month to go, one more month of training and preparing before the big race. Yay. Actually I must tell you after riding the SoDR, I feel physically ready. My big questions marks are mental preparation, and eating and drinking properly before and during the race. For which I will need my team.
Tonight team Rocky held its first group meeting, it went great. We talked about logistics (hotels, crew vehicle), food (a lot, and drink), navigation, bikes and bike parts, clothes, etc. And of course we talked about the 508 route, the long distances, the climbs, the descents, best places to take breaks, etc.
It seems like everyone brings different experience and knowledge which is great. I'm totally excited to have such a great team!
