Gutted

The Taupo bike race went well. I am only a little sore after it, which is great. I managed to clock up 80km which was my goal. The first 40km took 1 1/2hr and the second 1 3/4, so I am pleased with that. Unfortunately the icing was taken from the cake, as our time was not recorded and our result was, not raced. This is a long story, but basically one of our team members isn't the best of a team player. His son was competing in the solo race which starts an hour before ours. His son's bike broke 5km after the start. He managed to get back to the place where we were staying. His dad took pity on him, which is understandable and said that he could take his bike. I tried to protest, as this basically left us without a bike for our race. Unfortunately no one else saw my point of view and the bike was sent on its way. "So what do we do now" was my reply? They decided to put the electronic transponder, which is like a modern day batten on another rider about to start. This meant that he had two on, which is basically cheating.

Anyway, we all did our bit, apart from the dad, who never had a bike, which made him happy as he hadn't done any training for the event anyway. I did another 40km to make up for out lost 40km so at lease we could hold our heads up and say that our team did the 160km. I decided to check on the internet last night to see our results. To my horror, there were no results for us, as the electronic timing system never registered our transponder at the start. So basically, we never officially raced.

I am very gutted. I put in hours of training into the event. I am sure God is saying something here, but will have to wait until my head clears to hear it.

when God wrote the bible, electronic transponder thingys were not invented yet. So don't count on reading anything int he bible to help you out. ;-)

Maybe God's trying to tell you to never trust children. Never give them anything either. Except for your first-born son...
