Less than a week away.
I'm running out of skin.
I biffed it on the second and third lap. The first crash came courtesy of a tree branch I got too close to on a turn. It caught and turned my handlebars. For the rest of the day every low-lying branch protruding into the right side of the trail gave me a stinging reminder. The second crash was from a pedal strike on a big rock. It was minor. It only knocked off some of the scabs I got from last Wednesday's crash.
If nobody claims it after two laps, it's mine, right?
I think it would be wise for me to add a first aid kit to my gear list.
