Some re-routing of the courses will be necessary because the recent cold/wet/snowy conditions have left a number of the roads ice-crusted and treacherous. Like this, presumably:
So now would be a good time to change my race goals from 'finish in 2 hours' to something more realistic.
Here, then, are my race goals for the 2013 Barry-Roubaix:
1. Get to the beer tent before it closes.
2. Finish with the same bone count as when I started.
3. Remember that the worst rides make for the best stories.
For all my teammates and friends racing this weekend, best of luck, ride well, have fun!
