Bike races go off rain or shine. But how often do we practice racing in the rain? Tuesday night is the Midweek Crit here in Toronto. It's a 1km loop in a industrial park on the edge of Toronto. I was watching the weather all day today. I was planning to race it regardless of the weather. In my mind, I knew we would be racing in the rain and I looked forward to the training opportunity. Part of my motivation/enthusiasm today was my lack of preparation and readiness when I raced in Roswell, GA some 2-3 weeks ago. It poured from the moment I arrived until the Pro race at the end of the day. As a result of my lack of training in the rain and general unpreparedness, I ended up not finishing. Today, I was set completing the race regardless of what the weather brought - redemption of sorts for the pathetic result on Roswell.
