I’m always ahead of Jay on the downhills!
(I ride with him/near him/ not so near him on Tuesday nights when he is in town).
All the drama aside, he is a decent dude. He used to come out and help build trail with us.
I had to ask for 4 weeks off when I did Tour Divide, I had sufficient vacation time and the project I was working could cope without me for that period. Then I sent them all the tracking page so they could see where I was. They got concerned when my tracker broke leaving me at the top of a mountain.
