It's just I LOVE this race so much and it would have been perfect training for us. Long. Technical. Lots of elevation and long descents. Ah well, the good news is that Andrew, Stephanie, Erica, Mel and Shannon got in and we will all train together. The even better news is that more and more PACE athletes are signing up for races like Knee Knacker in the first place.
My thoughts for training for the Alps race this year was to set a series of mini race goals to lead into the Grand Pobah (sp?) and although Knee Knacker was one of those initial "mini's", this just means we will have to take our legs elsewhere. Perhaps to the Rockwall Trail.
Regardless, I look forward to coaching those who got into KK this year and helping them reach their goals and kick some ass. Here is a shot from KK memory lane in 2007:
