"Oh man, if Scott cleaned that, I am going to have to try that one again."
This statement is the underlining premise of every techy ride. You do it, fail. Then try again. Repeat as many times as necessary until you conquer or come up with another excuse (I almost had it, need to take a picture, unclipped, off today..the list is endless).
But when someone in your group cleans it...
...you gotta step up and try at least one more time.
The waiting game is the key of these type of rides. "We better not go over 7 miles during the 2.5 hour ride," Scott joked this past week.
Rule #1 of Technical Group Riding: Never feel like you are holding up the group. You can try until you give up.
...and so we wait, cheering as you try new lines. Surprising is it may seem, we want you to succeed, to rejoice in your accomplishment or empathize with you should you not make it.
Krista showed up for the TTT this week. During the first year of the TTT, we moved the ride to Tuesday upon realizing that Rubio's had a special on tacos. I believe she showed up for one of those first rides, in fact, that is where we met her.
Rob stepped it up and showed Scott and I how to launch off a deceiving drop on our normal TTT ride. It was just what we needed to give it a go.
And so, there was the last techy taco ride for this year.
