Thread Box:
"Spin to win, Crush it!" Annual Fargo Hill Climb Challange, 3/6/11
Thread started by UniGeezer at 03.6.11 - 5:19 pm

Since my last climb up Fargo street on 2/23/11, I was filled with both anticipation AND apprehension about today’s (3/6/11) “Annual Fargo hill street climb challenge”! When I did my climb back on 2/23/11, I had nearly collapsed upon finishing, and by lungs continued to burn like fire for the next 24 hours! So I had serious doubts as to if I could ever do it again!

Plus, I just got bad news last week from my doc, that I have Hypothyroidism, of which a hallmark symptom is fatigue! But I just said to myself that I MUST do this! I’ve trained too hard and prepared myself, and I will do make this climb if it kills me! And it almost did the last time, haha! But with the hundreds of bikers, spectators, media, plus my LBS sponsor and my brother were there, I had everything riding on this!

I got to Fargo early, and signed up and got my lucky number “7”, and then it was showtime. So after some stretching and a good deep breath, I mounted and went for it. After about 100 feet I realized that unlike last time, THIS time there were other participants…on BIKES…that I had to contend with during the climb!

They space the riders out but invariable people tend to bunch up now and then, and it happened to me more than once! I found myself having to still stand and sometimes hop in place, to avoid a collision! That slowed me down to, and each hop dropped me back down the massice 33% grade hill each time I did it!

But, at the ¾ point up, I started gaining confidence that I might pull it off! To my great surprise, my legs felt strong with no noticeable lactic acid, and my breathing was much better than last time. With 50 feet to go, I knew I had it in the bacg, and as I crested the top, I felt relief, and this time, instead of collapsing after my last climb when Steveyo was there, I THRUST my uni over my head in victory! I got my patch and now it’s official!

After a few minutes, I rode back down, got lots of high fives, and chatted with several people. After giving a couple interviews with media that was there, a reporter from OC Register—who was late getting there and missed my climb—just asked me to “recreate it” by riding up for only about 20 feet, so he could snap some shots for the paper.

I said sure, and casually started my short, 20 foot climb. But after he said thanks and got the shot, I decided to keep going! So many more people had arrived since my first climb, so I thought, why not. I’ve already got my patch, so if I can’t make it a second time, no biggie, I’ve got my patch anyway!

So I kept going…and going…and…I made it to the top for a second time in a row! Wow! Oddly, I still felt strong, but after hanging out for a little longer, I drove another 35 miles to do a nice 10 mile MUni ride on my 29er! What an epic day! Video coming.

You're an inspiration. To do what you do and do it so well at your age is a true testament to what the human spirit can will us to do. Can't wait for the video.

That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me, and it means a lot! Thank you for that. Video is almost ready to upload, and will post the link asap. Cheers!
