I returned from Girl's Camp last night around 10 pm. Camp was only about half over, but I had to get back so I could unpack, repack and leave for Leadville. We made it, but wouldn't you know it--rain. It has not rained since the Deer Valley ICUP race, but sure enough it is wet.
I am so nervous. My anxiety is two fold. First, the weather. I just don't do well when it is wet. We are looking at a 40% chance of thunderstorms with a high of 66 and a low of 41. Winds 12 mph on race day.
Secondly, there is a neutral start which keeps the group together. That means I have to ride in a peleton. I am terrible in a peleton. I get so squeamish. I am going to end up so far back.
This may not have been such a a good idea and expectations are pretty high. Hopefully, everything goes well.
