Dear Adventureless Racers,
It is with disappointment that I read your recantations of Sunday’s event.
In everyone’s letter, they indicate that the bike ride was “road oriented”.
Had you been with Roseann Simon, Rusty Bernard, and “wrong-way, Laurence Cohen”, you
would have had as off-road a ride as you could imagine.
I took Rusty and Roseann through cane fields, brambles, and crawfish
ponds on our way to check-point 4. It seemed to me that the organizers asked us to
bring mountain bikes for a reason. I helieved that there would be some short-cut
on the back roads and dirt roads that would ensure my team of victory. Un-
fortunately, this was not the case. I will say that Rusty and Roseann were
great sports about getting lost in the thickets and not complaining since they
realized that you have to take risks to the get the big reward.
All-in-all it was a change of pace from the hum-drum duathlons and
triathlons. My team hopes that next time there will be more organized off-road riding
and less black-top hammering to make this event a more even competition for
those of us without Cendrowski-like skills.
