The Crusher in the Tushars

I’ve brought into the world one mean  “psychological rhinoceros” in the form of Lincoln Jamrog.

-The New Year brings about new hopes and goals.  Here’s what the Rockies’  Jamrog has in his sights this riding season- the Crusher in the Tushars bike race.

It seems like a joke but it’s real:  69 miles. 10,000 vertical.

This:, April 5th, 2011 “This event will truly be a crusher for anyone crazy enough to enter it”

and this:  via A Guide to the Crusher in the Tushars – Grizzly

and then this: West Coast’s Arlo Jamrog calls me after a 65 mile ride out of San Francisco as he trains up for a Century ride ( 100 miles in a day).

Just when I am trying to dial down the suffering quotient for the year, these two ramp it up.

Could these two be expressing the “Polish suffering gene” ?
