Vuelta de Enology
Doug Perry and I, on behalf of Aggress, endured two days of intense enologic cycling training this past Friday and Saturday. Spousal accompaniment was deemed prudent in the event we buried ourselves in our work with too much intensity. Our training intervals varied in intensity from 6-9 one oz tastes per cycling dismount. Remount and continuation become more problematic as the event progressed and was exacerbated by the absence of a Team support vehicle. Nevertheless, we dug deep and found within ourselves the will to carry on, in due course completing Stage 1. We refueled and carbed up at Viaggios, got a good nights rest (mostly), and arose ready and eager for Stage 2. At our low point during Stage 2 we needed some inspiration to carry on and thus availed ourselves of the opportunity to commune with Jimi (No, NOT Riccitello, Hendrix). We finished strongly and readily credit Aggress training for the iron discipline necessary to finish at all. Less prepared riders could literally have been dropped.
