Fellow TT'er & BITD Racer Ironman Dan

What will you be doing this Thursday morning at 5:00 am? If you are like me, you will be asleep resting for just another day at the office, maybe dreaming of a new WR450 sitting in your garage.

Not fellow Tter Dan Lorenze. No sir. He will be starting day one in the Best In The Desert Nevada 1000. Click HERE for info on this event. Late June (read HOT!) in the Nevada desert and Dan is racing 1000 miles in three days ALL BY HIMSELF in the Ironman class.

Dan, in my book, you are the MAN. I wish you the best of luck and will be thinking of you while I am sitting at my desk in my air-conditioned office doing absolutely nothing exciting whatsoever.

Go get em Ironman Dan! :)

I echo your setiments Ron. Good luck Dan, I should say I envy you and probably do to some degree but then the real world hits me. I'd be gone after the first day of heat, speed, bumps and a few crashes if it was me :) . Again, Good Luck to you and your bike..........TW

Danny Boy,

Good luck in Nevada! We'll give you a few weeks to recover, then you can write us a recap here in TT.

If you are interested, it sounds like Paul might be up for a road trip to Kennedy Meadows. Tell Derek, Tokie, and the guys if you like. I'll pm Ron so he knows, too. No exact date yet, but we'll work it out.

Dan

Guys, Thanks for all of the kind words.. I really appreciate it..

Im looking forward to the race. I have the WR all dialed in. Im bringing 3 complete wheel sets so I have fresh tires for all 3 days. I have 2 full working pit crews going along with tons of spare parts and a complete spare WR. I have taken advice from Ronny and got "Guts racing" seat foam and bought some padded bicycle riding shorts, that with some Monkey butt cream should have my rear end good to go.

The most important aspect for me is to finish the race, period!! I will be as consistant as I can, making sure to ride smart and not overshoot any turns and to stay far away from trucks. I don't plan on winning this race, my competition is really tough but a nice third or fourth place finish would be nice.

Im really lucky to get the time off of work to do this and I have the greatest family that will be there at every pit for me. And that's the most important thing. You can't imagine how much time goes into a race like this, it's unbelievable.

I think my brother might have an extra set of"TT" stickers that I'll try to bum off of him. I'll make sure that I'lll have some pictures taken of the WR and me.

Again, Thanks for the kind words guys!!!! Hopefully we could all get together this summer for a Kennedy Meadows trip and have some beers. That would be great!!!!!!!

Thanks,DL :)

No offense but if those are the ones you're watching out for you probably need to speed up a little :) ... Hmmm, I've got a cart for sale right now, maybe you should buy it and race it in that class???? Good luck again man.. I'd be there chearing you on but I'm going to be riding shotgun in a 7s truck Sat at the MDR race in Lucern.
