Well i called it today officially at 12:06 p.m. when i was almost falling over climbing a monstrous fifty foot peak. The MTB season is finished for me. This weekend will be totally by ear literally, my right ear still feels funny after not popping on the way down from the glacier on sunday. Still lots of mucous, and just feeling off balance.
With no day of for the squeezer thats out, so its looking like if I feel ok Saturday ill head down for the Speedriver Cross on Sunday in Guelph. Ill keep you posted on that(Tim) thinking its 50/50 right now.
It was a great season, i pushed myself pretty hard in a few races and learned a lot about my own limits.
