When it comes to cycling, I’m the equivalent of a weeknight jib-and-main racer. I can talk the talk, but my walk is slow and gimpy. I’m a much more serious sailor. And I can’t say that I watched the cycling because the action was more intense. The final day of the USA PCC was a 9-mile time trial through downtown Denver. Time trials are generally the dullest of all road cycling events. There’s no tactics, breakaways, or 10-rider pile-ups. It’s just one guy, hunched in an extremely uncomfortable position, churning away at the absolute limit of his endurance. I’m sure the sailing on San Francisco Bay was more exciting.
