The schedule doesn't change

The schedule doesn't change just because I don't have time. Tomorrow is the ice crit championship series bike race and I'm still making tires. Putting all of those studs in a tire is very time consuming. I just put a hundred in and I have about 50 to go. Then I have to line the tires with duct tape, put the tubes in, mount them on the rims and inflate. Then I have to lookat the problem with my cable in the rear, since my bike stopped shifting gears coming home on Friday. The cable was loose and I think that's the real reason my chain was skipping. We'll see. Regardless, The race is still tomorrow and they won't change the date of it just because I haven't had time to finish my tires.
The question is, do I go tired or skip it? I'm on a mission right now, so I'll let you know tomorrow. It's too bad that studded-tire making class wasn't a week ago. But I'll still be able to play in the snow with these tires tomorrow before it all melts. Here comes the sun.
More news tomorrow night.
