Summers End

The past weekend marked the end of daylight savings time for this year. The weather was pretty nice Saturday and Sunday, but yesterday definitely brought an end to that feeling, with the arrival of the first big storm (some say it rivals the legendary storm of 1999, the roads this morning surely witnessed that some damage occurred to buildings, threes and scaffolding etc.).
So I thought it was fitting to call the short movie I made while playing around with the new Garmin Virb action cam (more on that later) for Summers End.

Kongesporet 2013 and Narrow/Wide chainring follow up.

Today is Tuesday. My bottom only hurts a little now.
Sunday evening it was a bit worse. Crossing the finish line Sunday afternoon it didn't really feel that bad. The pain came creeping in after I'd relaxed for a couple of hours.

Sunday morning 9 a.m. I was ready on the start line of the inaugural version of Kongesporet (Kings trail) 2013.
For the last two months I've been training to start racing again, planning to debut in the Slushcup in November. Despite that plan I was ready on the start line of Kongesporet this Sunday. Thinking it might be a good opportunity to test my fitness and finally do some racing again. I'd signed up for the marathon distance of 105 km, as the shorter distances of 42 and 21 km are for kids and rookies.
I've ridden marathon races before, but it's been a couple of years, so I didn't really know what pace to set. But I had a plan.
