I'm a rolling fashion plate in my aero helmet, generic shorts/warmers/gloves with my trash bottles to lose at the feedzone.
how are you liking that specialized lid? been thinking of getting one.

I have to swallow my pride when I put it on, but in the pictured race I was able to hold my break at 26mph for 10 miles into a slight headwind. At that pace I feel like it makes a tangible difference. If nothing else, seeing the funky profile in my shadow reminds me to tuck down and put the helmet into the wind.
Definitely less venting than the prevail, and 80g heavier, but I've yet to wear it on a hot day and the weight trade is not bad for the alleged aero gain.
The front wheel is angled just right so it looks like it's just the fork!
It almost looks like I'm photoshopped in there for effect or something. Just looks so out of place.
credit to mike sanders, I'm planning on buying this when I see the hi-res.
breakaway... now I know my pain face looks like a smile.
cat 3 crit finish. 2nd in the sprint, on the left in the green.

flattery will get you everywhere.
Not sure if suffering or not but they are of me racing . Photos by: my girlfriend.
I am the middle one on the back row. This is the start of the race.
Contesting the sprint!! My first road race . I am the one on the right with black/red helmet and orange glasses
Ok, I'll admit it. This is the pic where I was suffering the most. Warm up 20 minutes before the race. I was Shi*** myself. I hope those nerves come down the more I race because it is hard to take.

I've done 15 races so far and get less nervous. Still get them a bit though - I assume it's normal to some extent. Sometimes I get nervous googling the course and planning it out. Got nervous driving up for a rainy crit on Saturday. And of course a little each time I line up right before they blow the whistle.
I'm in this picture, too! I'm the one on the front to the right of Mr. Catlike helmet. Please PM me if you have any more picture from the race.
Was a fun race (Cat 5 -34). 3-man break which held off until the end. Saw online that one of them had a NP of 332W (~4.3 w/kg) for the 21 miles, so no big surprise they stayed away.
I'll have to check the pics when I get home but I will tell you.. my GF is not known for being a bad photographer but rather a horrendous photographer. So anything I have (except for the shot above) will most likely be crap. I'll let you know though. It was nice racing with you.
