Monkey Hill TT
Monkey Hill TT is a Blast.
3.1 miles on a Friday night, after work. It's a swell lap of cobbles, turns, a perfect challenge for every rider.
warming up, I was loose and chatty, talking it up a bit with a young-in. "I hope the bike does not boucne apart" I said, referring to the starting section of fast jarring rough, downhill cobbles.
He looked at me and replied. "hope you don't lose your dentures"!
I road well and kept all my teeth. Lots of smiles and great cheering and heckling along the really painful finishing climb of the cobbled Monkey Hill.
I could not figure out the podium, and I think the other two 55+ gentlemen, had to rush to make the AARP discount rate at the local buffet and missed the photo. Quite happy I was to stand on the wrong step, and remembering some advice from JR Petsko, (he runs the best podiums, shipshape and smart) I did the pose.
and Cheers to my teammate Kelly CX Cline on his great ride! 3rd place. 45+
Man!, I have such a blast doing this cool fun challenging race. So good to see friends, have a beer, and eat some pierogies. I do love the pierogies!
Cheers Monkey Hill!
