    For the win two years ago. I was OTF for 7 laps and Rockstar almost caught me. But he didn't.

    Dude that won the Wente crit yesterday came from behind and pipped the other guy at the line, just barely.

    He (the winner) had some kind of aero helmet on.

    However, I think he's strong enough to have done it aero helmet or not.

    My helmet is team issue so I have no choice on the matter. Lionel and I go head to head a lot and I usually beat him in the sprint. I screwed up and didn't time it or gear it right into the headwind. He deserved the sprint win no matter what was on his head.

    It wasn't as close as it looks. In the video it's about a quarter wheel.

    Looks like a scared cat doing a bike throw.

    Amen brother. In my races we keep having these ******bags attack from 1' out, ruining everything. And I seem incapable of picking the correct wheel to follow.

    Pretty much. It appears that I'm going to have to smarten up considerably to have any hope of ending the bullying by the skinny non-sprinter types.

    Great Park training race, Irvine CA - 40+

    Unsuccessful long attack for the win. Barely held on for 5th.

    Your position looks much better than you give credit to; just remember what's optimal for one guy may not be the best for you

    I mean in terms of efficiency. Mine isn't bad and that's why I'm lumped in with the top group. But to break out of that group I think there are some tweaks to be made. Bringing my elbows a little more together, for one. Remembering to drop my head level more, too.

    Everyone's different. I'm sure this guy would beat your winner above, and your position looks pretty similar (other than the 3x leg mass thing). Maybe you should make these changes, maybe not. I'd look into some of RX and Nate's discussions on testing. For starters, RX's terminal velocity stuff could be very useful. My aero testing on the cheap stuff might be useful if you have someone who will ride with you for this.

    collegiate road nationals this past weekend in Richmond, VA. this is from Libby Hill, the cobbled climb on the course. I'm in the light blue jersey w/ the gopro on my helmet (i'll upload some footage later). Only lasted 3 laps of 7 before I got popped off, but fared better than about 100 other guys behind me (total field was ~170). most brutal race I've done, this hill wasn't even the worst part. the finishing climb and crazy wind made it completely impossible to chase back on. 2 of my teammates who are much stronger than I placed 21st and 23rd, my other teammate got stuck behind some landmines on the first lap and never made it to the main pack since we were in the 3rd and 4th waves of callups (started around ~120th wheel, sprinting from the start to catch up because of the narrow road). same course as the world championships next year
