I went riding today, a cold wet day to ride, not easy riding weather, but that's what I got for ya weather. If you learn to ride in bad weather, how to dress, how to shiver, when to really worry about numb fingers/toes, you'll do better when you race in those elements. I was out for about 2.5 hrs. and as long as I was moving I was warm.
a couple of months ago, headed home in my car, up the hill to my house, some ass was on my tail. He jumped the lanes and pulled hard around to the top, it was an easy car to remember, blue with a picture of itself in the back window.
