Okay, a sumo on a bike.. I must admit it was a little unusual to pass a guy riding his bicycle in the heat of the day clan only in his briefs. Hair up in a kind of bun and some extra weight made me think he looked like a sumo wrestler who had been through “America’s Biggest Loser.”
Some unsportsmanlike behavior yesterday caused the director to cancel our timing yesterday. Several racers left early. I was a little disappointed by their actions and the wasted effort. Plus I am still needing to recover from days of timed stages.
Unfortunately there are participants who don’t ride when the going gets tough and then stay up keeping others awake. I don’t care whether they choose to ride but I do care if they prevent me from resting.
Looks like that has improved now that I have expressed my opinion about this to Rob who is in charge. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that there are some very inconsiderate individuals (adults) on this epic journey. Amazing behavior. It reminds me of the maturity of middle school children I taught for 30 years. They have an excuse of age.
