I realize it is a mountain bike picture but you really don't get much more suffering than I was in my before picture.

No joke, that kid is by far the skinniest racer around here. He's a good rider though - that was in my 3rd CAT-5 race, and I still hadn't gotten my sprint timing down at all. As you can see, I'm sitting down and on the hoods...about 50m from the line because I'd just popped

I still pulled out 5th or 6th out of ~50.

People just never learn, and keep posting their photos. Shall I remind them what botto does with them?

I think my problem in my first race was that I forgot to suffer.
