    Race Report Corner House Grand Prix

    Long version, graphs, and WKO+ file found in here. For those of you who could do without the play by play, I got in a break, then I got crushed. 4th place. The end.

    Sounds like your Cat ran a much different race than ours(4/5) did. We treated it more like a road race with not to much sprinting around corners. Then again though, no one could corner in this race and everyone was really heavy on the brakes. It was a fun course though and not at all that I was expecting hill wise, but I survived. I got 10th. Good job on your race.

    Nice report!

    Nice report doc. Enjoy France.
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    great report...pretty impressive to get 4th with those guys, especially on 4 hours of sleep. Eric's older brother Adam is my teammate (BVF) so I hear about how he's doing...definitely a rider of great potential.

    Eric is a great rider and very young. If he keeps at it, he will go places...and need to have a private chiropractor.

    4 hours of sleep is a lot for me for a race, so it wasn't that...it is that I am not made for so much above-threshold stuff as was found on those hills. I DID wish I had my soloist carbon though...I know it's not about the bike, but...sigh.

    Thanks for the encouragement guys (and girls). I have to update my cat-2-o-meter now.

    Yeah, still waiting to see a race report from you in which you weren't sleep deprived. I always enjoy the read, however!

    As I finish work at 1AM, I don't think it is going to happen anytime soon.

    You know, thinking about this, I'm amazed at how many times I can bounce off 15 bmp over LTHR in a race and still feel good after I recover. I'm certainly no DWJOD, but I'm wondering what's training it for me. I used to hit those HRs only maybe twice before I'd be out the back, but now I can get there maybe a dozen times in a race and still have some game left.

    I guess it's the training races training it... it's not something I've targeted in my drills. I had always figured if my fitness continued to improve, I wouldn't have to go that high. Yet, here I am able to get there and exploit it by moving up or attacking during surges.

    But will he need a ridiculously overpaid mechanic?
