The first race of the local season is coming up quickly, as will your heart rate and lactic acid if you participate. The name may be mysterious, but there's nothing funny about the effort these events will take. So, if you are ready to get off the trainer and get on the road, here is your chance.
Sunday, March 4, 2012 - The Wawawai Landing TT and Wawawai Grade Hill Climb. Here is the link to the full information: http://tedchauvin.tumblr.com/post/15914168164/wawawai-landing-tt-wawawai-grade-hill-climb.
I also found a couple of race reports from participants last year - http://y-rocket.blogspot.com/2011/04/wawawai-20km-time-trial-race-report.html and http://www.thumbprintracing.org/2011/03/wawawai-landing-time-trial-double.html.
Local racer and erstwhile car/bike-wreck celebrity, Ted Chauvin, is the promoter. You can check out his tumblr here - http://tedchauvin.tumblr.com/, or his Twitter here - https://twitter.com/tedchauvin You could also start stalking him by tracking down his home and work address and sitting in your car outside waiting to catch glimpses of him while you feverishly write a list of questions about why you would promote a race just south of nowhere and involving two excruciating efforts when many of us will just be dusting off our race bikes for the season, but instead, I just suggest just putting the race down on your calendar and planning to come down to the Wawawai Landing for an early season tester.
And really, how much could it hurt?
