But, like gambling, lose 10 times and it sucks, but win that 1 time and it convinces you to keep trying.
I did the PIR once on a trip to visit in-laws. Such a fun race and beautiful asphalt. (Plus, being flat and windy it was right in my Sacramento wheelhouse.)
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
Yup, all the way.
A tractor-like thingy came from the other way a few times, but besides that we had the whole road.
mattm off the bike next time I have a chance. He looks like a Hollywood casting director!
Maybe some day my hair will look as good as Dirk's.
One can dream!

That Alex Chiu dude does some nice work.
We don't have a "Pictures of you yelling in a race" thread so I'll just post this here:
Torrance Crit 35+ 3/4
Rider from Tru flatted in the middle of the chicane and nearly put a few of us into the curb.

Folsom 2/3's where I got 2nd, via the great Alex Chiu.
Bridging to something:
Chilling in the pack.
And yes, in the drops. Fwiw I did that corner a few times on the hoods and though about the 33!
I think our Scott Helmets are super ugly.
Such misery at the top of Ham. 40s off leaders. Total FML zone where I don't know if I chase hard to catch up or wait and hope to be caught by a good chase group. Instead I chose to toil in no-man's land for 20 minutes.
Your pedal is fine. If your not kicking up your rear wheel from a pedal strike it's all good. Hell, even if you do it's not that big of a deal.
I think the guy behind you is watching your pedal too.
