When you exit on the shores of Okanagan Lake to hear the crowds you have 4 minutes...
When your heart rate starts to sky rocket and your legs feel like rubber as you crest the bridge you have less than 4 minutes
When you mount your steed and start to hammer you have 3 minutes
When your trying to make that group just up ahead at the railroad tracks you have 2 minutes
When you see kids frolicking on knox beach while your body feels like it's disintegrating you have 1 minute
Then you see it...
It rises from the valley floor like a steeple
You have no more time
This is it
The acceleration you've been waiting for
This is where your race can change...
- In 2007 my race changed for the worse, in 2008 my race changed for the good....what will 2009 reveal?
You reach its top and feel the lactate flush....'wait I have to do that 5 more fu$King times?!'
- Matt Chrabot 2007 post race - ''Dude, that hill is legit!"
Yes, yes it is.
