Cramming for a Race

I am succumbing to peer pressure and will be racing in this Sunday's Men's Health Mountain Bike race in Maarat. Being crammers that we are, we went for a training ride last Tuesday night in UP despite the rains, and it showed me how much I am out of shape. I couldn't hold on to Mike O's wheel. After the third lap, I was dropped.

According to King, this Sunday's course is just a couple of laps in the Roxas trail. If ever I can't hold on to the main pack, at least I'm confident that I won't get lost.

This is going to be my first race since the First EBD Invitational Mountain Bike Challenge, which was held in a one-kilometer race course that we made at Barangay Sico in Batangas City.
