Nice write-up, well done for beating your record and completing the race in such a short time. Something tells me you are going to have to train very hard to cut another 30 minutes off next year though!
One of the most fun parts is the surprise, interest, and amusement shown by the other competitors. Also, most of the bike racers think that unicycling is not just hard but close to impossible, so they give you even more credit than you really should get for it. It’s too much fun, in between gasping for breaths. You’ll love it.
dont worry, i will take a look at it, then ask my mom and stepdad if i can enter in it, every day for the next year, but i need some info on it, like when is it gonna happen next year, or around what time?
but would it be hard to do on a 24?
i really want to do this, is it all on cement?
is there a website for it?
Congrats Steveyo, you are an animal. I saw Filly in one of those pics, she is a riot. Way to work it, remember, pain is a good thing! Don’t stop chasing those dreams, as you find out with every one, the bigger the effort, the bigger the reward.
Thanks. I hope you stay away from this race so I keep my record, because you’re a bigger animal.
Filly tried out the KH29 a couple times, and seemed intrigued. As I left her she was ruminating that there are no women’s uni records yet in any of these races. I’d be stoked to see her learn - she’s freaky enough.
The race results show I was 185th out of 217 finishers. There were an additional 10 DNFs.
