    We should all get to suffer like that.

    You can't really see it here, but that water seemed like it was about 3 inches deep. And temps in the 40s.
    Bring the pain.

    Thanks bdc. Jigga would be proud of me, indeed. Not taking BF, and myself, too seriously is the only way I stay sane. Hell, I submitted my own picture to that yougotdropped blog.

    You're too kind. Introduce yourself sometime now that you know what I look like. I'll be in plenty of combined 3/4 fields in the next month before my upgrade.

    If there aren't pictures from that race to post in this "suffering" thread, we're doing it wrong.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    not sure - quite a few. I'd say at least 40'ish.

    yeah, photog did a great job. Good idea shooting with a wide angle low and up and using slow sync flash. Most people think telephoto when it comes to sports photography.

    This is at The Driveway in Austin. Its a car race track that a bike race promoter leases on Thursdays during the spring/summer/fall.

    Oh man I agree, that was brutal. I figured based on the description of the course, it would be a small incline such as the one in the Tyson's Race. Found out fairly quickly that was not the case. If I knew before I would have switched out to a compact to deal with it.

    I also got dropped off after the first 2 laps and remember seeing you, because you were the only other guy with a blue jersey. I was not to pleased with getting dropped but got 9th out of 16, so it could have been worse (Cat 5's not combined with 35+). After the race however I had a 3 hour drive back home, which was not to much fun.
