not really suffering, but was at my father's office this morning and took a crappy iphone pic of a (just after the) finish line photo on his wall.

i'm in the middle with the scott drop bars.

almost nipped him at the line, even with a bike throw, but had to settle for 2nd.

San Bruno Hill Climb - Jan 1 2011. If only my race time matched my suffering.

Yeah, this coming from a guy with almost 40,000 posts. Most of which are intentional digs at others. Pot meet Kettle.

I'm at the front. This was a hilly crit. Here is my Garmin file

196 average HR, so I was definitely suffering.

Not suffering. Too early in the season to be suffering.

Beaker 01-09-11 03:40 PM

^^ early bird 5's? Dayum that's some short time between riding and posting? Looks like the pavement on the run up to the first corner is really getting broken up.

milliron 01-09-11 06:01 PM

Yup, Early Bird 5s. Pavement was a mess there. I felt my rear wheel slipping once. Also sucks to get hit in the face with sand by the tire in front of you.

Wanted to hang around afterwards and take photos but my wife had frozen feet. :)

Was a lot of fun. First crit for me.

DRietz 01-09-11 06:10 PM

First crit for me too. You probably saw me fly off the back and riding around with a mentor. Lapped like four times.

Beaker 01-09-11 06:54 PM

Cool - hope to see you guys next week - although I'll be with the 5's old farts division.

Megatron Crit today. 42 degrees, drizzling. My coach had me treat this as a practice race and wanted me to attack, attack, and then attack again. So I did. Nothing stuck though and by the time the sprint came around I was kinda cooked and screwed it up. 7th. A few pics pf my random, illogical, attacks.

bringing it on at the first Bring It On crit - end up with a solo 2nd (behind Phil Gaimon (Kenda)) on the first race of the season :)

Hoping I can do something like this at the first non-training race of the season

I may get the strap buttons if I perserve with the clips and straps. I hate buying shoes because of my awkward feet and the money for new shoes could go to paying for more race entries to get shelled in.

As for what happened. It's easier to think of what I didn't do wrong. I just wasn't fast or fit enough. I hadn't done enough training, heck I hadn't even ridden that bike in a couple of months. I did a 77km race/fun ride on my road bike instead of the planned recumbent the day before. I possibly didn't warm up enough or have quite enough food/gel/water beforehand.

I did all the dumb things.

At least the first lap was neutralised behind a car so I didn't get dropped at the start due to not having clipless shoes and pedals.:D

It was fun though.

how old is that helmet?

Hard to tell because he's not at the bottom of the stroke.
