If there's one thing I miss about racing mountain bikes, it's team events. Going at every effort as if it's your last so as not to let your team mate(s) down, tagging in the next rider with a diaphragm convulsing violently, hoping they'll take their time with their turn... but knowing they'll put everything in to it so as not to let you down.

Today gave me a taste of that again, working with another big guy (Gerard... the dude who beat me on the 10km rowing day a while back). Each exercise split into 2 efforts each, enough time to dig a hole, but short enough that I was soon resting, diaphragm convulsing, hoping that I was holding up my end.

I even got to experience the best part of team events, finishing my final effort just before the cut off and sending a team mate out for another effort after they assumed they were done.
