    This is what it's come to...

    http://michiganbikeshops.net/page.cfm?PageID=191

    I'm busy that weekend. I don't know what yet, but I'm busy.

    I think they're a bit optimistic in calling it the 1st Annual.

    Hmm, a three hour drive to 'race' on rollers? What, you don't want to car-pool, Event?
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    "1st annual" is also grammatically incorrect (i think). A rollers race. That's almost as fun as the power hours we used to do in college. on rollers.

    Power hours? I thought alcohol was involved.

    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169

    We do Computrainer races here in Jan/Feb/March.

    It's good to get out and mess around and see some of the other guys.

    Correct.

    The first one is the Inaugural. It's not technically an annual event until the 2nd Annual.

    I hope point of roller racing is not lost as it moves to the midwest...

    the point is to be as un-sober and as much of a pretentious hipster *****bag as possible.
    Patience - Consistency - Motivation

    I literally put our 9.11 watts/kg for 12 hours.

    Hence the preponderance of fixed gear bikes.
