My local Tuesday ride is f**king brutal. There's a BMC guy who shows almost every week, and last week we were visited by a Predictor-Lotto rider. The fast section is 12 miles long, and almost always the pack is exposed to a vicious cross wind. I've hung in till the sprint a few times, but I've been dropped within the first third of the ride more times. I'm a middling talent, but I train like a madman. Should I give up on this ride, or will I eventually be able to hang? Are there some rides that are just too fast?
