I had to try it, I had to see first hand what it is like to go on the “Vampire rides” with Excel Sports Team rider Nico at 4:30 in the AM. If you recall from the interview we did with Nico a few months ago, 4:30 in the am is his standard ride time and going into the mountains is also standard. So a few weeks ago I emailed Nico asking if I could join him on one of his early morning rides which he agreed. What had I gotten myself into? 4:30 in the AM! When I told my wife about it she said, “Happy Birthday Kris”, I had forgotten that the day we choose was also my birthday.
