Team Carbo Rocket: At the Start
In case you haven’t heard, or haven’t read up, here, or here; Team Carbo Rocket has formed up, and in the end … I MADE THE TEAM !!! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am, or how honored, or how thankful I feel. I got the word while we were shooting earlier this week in Palm Springs, and it’s been all I can think about.
I haven’t met the rest of my team, and I don’t know that I ever will. We are scattered all about the country. Have a look at their profiles over here on the new TEAM site!
Every one of these folks clearly deserves to be here
[except for maybe that Dartanyon guy], as I am sure that many of the folks who applied, and didn’t make it, deserved to as well.
I imagine I will sound a little self disparaging at the start, as the gravity of what I have signed on for hits me. The cross scene in Seattle is serious business, and these guys and gals take their podium seriously.
A podium finish with these guys is going to take a ton of work and discipline and training. But I’m taking this fight seriously. I am channeling my inner Bruce Lee swagger, and I am going to succeed.
I’m going to be post my goals and training schedule, some rides, and progress reports too, both here and on my carborocket page. Tomorrow I should have a goals post up for ya’all.
