So here is the problem…
DH or moto?
I have raced DH for the past 4 years and I have had some great times. I have accomplished a lot and I have left a lot too be accomplished. But, I have reached a sort of mental burn out. I have ridden the same training DH trails over and over and I’m just bored with practice and training. However, if I can get up for a race I maintain a condition and skill level to be some what competitive without doing much. My option for races this year is like most, US Open, Snowshoe Series, Carter Lake Series, Massanutten, Clemson, Wolf, Paris. That is about 13 races with an average drive is close to 5-6 hours one way and usually a minimal two day investment.
On the other hand take a look at this… Hare Scramble Schedule. That is approximately 100 races between now and Xmas, 83 under 6 hours away, and 24 under 3 hours away. Plus its drive up and race. No practice and no one run and done. Races usually start at 10am and are over by lunch.
What would you do, please comment?
