Looks like WR was catching a nice draft off of two of my teammates. Here's me on the same day about 4-5 back (in the red, white and blue) thinking it might be prime time up around the bend. It wasn't.
That field looks beefy.
I dunno, I might go after 5-10 lbs after the end of this season. If I could get under 170 lbs again, that would be pretty useful for the W/kg...
You callin' us old geezers fat son?
That's ok. Like WR said, it's Houston...we're um, trying.
(not sure what my excuse is, I've only lived here 4 years)
A couple of me trying to get off the front at our local Tuesday night race:
These are scans of prints that the photographer gave to me. The race was back sometime in April. I think I was retaining water that night. The break attempts did not work.
Mediocre finish at the Bristol Mountain RR. Pic was taken on the part of the course where most of the selection took place ... 1K at 18%
It's a man's life as a USA Cycling official...
Sitting down, Standing up, Sitting down again, writing some notes, checking stopwatches, writing more notes, chatting people up, Standing up, walking around, Sitting down again...For 8 hrs.
From the Joe Martin Stage race:
On the Hillclimb:
Nice sprint sequence for the road race:
Same for the crit:
EBC Crit a couple weeks ago, spent a few laps here and there on the front, attacking after primes, etc, trying to keep it stretched out and put a little bit of hurt on the early sprinters. Not sure it helped much, but better than being pack fodder. Gave a teammate an early leadout on the far side to get him back in the mix at the end.
I can't honestly say I was suffering too much here. Different crit, different day, same beefy field! Check out the Incredible Hulk behind me...
