Re: 24 Hours of Adrenalin at Laguna Seca
I have 11 years of road bicycle racing experience under my belt. It's what got me interested in motorcycles. I decided I wasn't able to train enough to be competitive after I graduated college. I have done a few mountain bike races as well but never really got into them. I don't trust dirt. I used to smoke all the out of shape mountain bikers up the hills and then they would fly by me on the downhills. I don't know what kind of laid back races you guys have done on mountain bikes but the ones I did were basically like 2 to 3 hours of constant pain, a long time trial. Most road bicycle races are like 30 minutes of pain at a time but it's more intense during that time.
I have yet to ride my motorcycle at Laguna Seca but I have raced my road bicycle on that course many times. That hill is a lot more formidable when you have to lug your own fat arse up it 20 times or so I'm sure. Fun stuff. I love bicycles!
