The Off Season - FINALLY!

I hung in there the whole time. Held it together physically but finished it out with the mental capacity of a 6 year old. Moderately full MTB season (12 races), with a FULL cross season (20 races). Nice to finally get some good rides in without having to stare at the HR monitor. Haven't taken any real time off the bike. I'll let the crazy January weather here in Kansas City tell me when not to ride. Anything off-road out here is out of the question, unless it's a well graveled road. To much rain, snow, melting snow, and re-freezing melted snow all means no singletrack for a while. Meanwhile I have every inch of the 30+ miles of paved bike trails memorized. The Kreitler rollers are ready to go when all else fails.
