Hey, Jimmy Day here! On track to become the first Masters Racer age 50+ to compete in all four UCI international and all five USA Cycling championships in a single year (plus a qualifier, making it a decathlon!). 5 down, 5 to go!
At age 60, I’ve set a hell of a goal for myself, racing against ex-professionals, ex-Olympians, and amateur champions in 10 races in 5 different cycling disciplines (road racing, criterium, time trial, mountain biking, and cyclo-cross—yeah, that’s 5 different types of bicycles with 5 different training regimes!) in 4 countries.
But, I’m sure motivated and encouraged by placing in the top 10 in my first four target races in 2014: the UCI Masters World Cyclo-Cross, USA Cycling Masters Cyclo-Cross, UCI Tour of Winston-Salem, USA Cycling Cross-Country Mountain Biking Nationals, and 11th in the UCI World Mountain Biking Championship race in Norway. I qualified for the UCI Masters Road World Cycling Championships in Slovenia. A BIG DEAL!
So, welcome to my world! I’ll be blogging here on my adventures from time to time. And racing ‘a bloc’ (all out), as the French say. But no matter what, I’m gonna have fun. There’s just no way I’m done yet.
