While I wrapped up road season this week and starting CX, @OriginalMarkV is gonna get to know @thequeenofpain and gravel @RRPrivateIdaho.

And if you read Mark’s last gravel report from Issue 13, if you doesn’t find proper Chinese food, it’s gonna be a long day. Before accepting the challenge to ride in an Idaho you don’t know, we checked!
I have this thing for eating Chinese food the night before big cycling events. Not crap Chinese food that you find at Panda Express-wannabees in mall food courts, but also not totally authentic Chinese either. I know both well, having been a mall rat until I left small town Florida for school and having traveled Asia extensively as an adult. What in America typically passes as Chinese is just so much deep-fried chicken nuggets in disgusting sweet n’ sour sauce, while true Chinese cuisine never has the right balance of meat and vegetables unless you order enough items to fill a banquet table. I just want some tender beef or chicken in brown sauce over a bunch of stir-fried veggies and a side of steamed rice.
Mark will be out of cell range for most of Reba’s ride and I’ll be wondering how he did, if anyone saw him on the climb……
