It's Got To Be Mental

I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.
I love the wind. I love the wind.

If I say it enought times, will it be true?
Could I ever relish it like I do the hills?
Slice through it like an arrow?
Use it to my advantage? ...to hurt my competitors?

Mark - two ways to deal with the wind:
1) Pretend you are Belgian. Drink hot soup after rides and concentrate on how very tough you are to be riding in such conditions.
2) Be glad you are not in Central Illinois where winds will be 30-40mph for weeks at a time in the spring. In the flat lands there is nothing to stop or divert the wind.

Thanks for the comments Steve and Steve. Oddly enough, I started this silly sport living in a place with notorious winds... the San Joaquin delta. Back then, at a buck fifteen, I rode in the wind all the time, sometimes having to stand just to move forward on flat ground. SB makes us soft.

So I'll be Belgian... BRING IT ON!!
