Strange things happen to one's mind during a time trial, particularly when it's raining. Many thoughts come and go, like "Why am I here?" for example. Below is one of the musings of a waterlogged bike racer from today's race (to the tune of "Singin' in the Rain"):

Piru-12-2-12-ResultsDumb-de-de-dumb-dumb
De-dumb-de-de-dumb-dumb
De-dumb-de-de-dumb-dumb
De-dumb-de-de-dumb-dumb...

We're racin' in the rain
Just racin' in the rain,
What a glorious feelin'
We're racin' again.
We're laughing at the pain
With pressure on the chain,
The monitor's on the heart
And we're ready to start.

Let the other riders chase
While we're setting the pace,
Come on while the spray
Shoots all over the place.
We're flying cross the line
With the podium on our minds,
just racin', racin' in the rain
We're racin' and placin' in the rain...

Today at the Piru TT, Canyon Velo was well represented in the race and on the podium. In rainy conditions, Paul L rode a super ride to take 1st place in the 45+ category. New member Bill L took the top step in the 65+. I also rode well enough to grab 2nd in the 55+. Three CV riders and three podium places. Nice... and wet.
