Pace Bend/Walburg, baby!

Who's in? I'll be at both, but I'm driving lead for the Women's 3 *grumble grumble* at Walburg, and don't get to race. Racing 4's at Pace Bend (hopefully nearing the end of my 4's tenure), and driving lead for the Men's 3 in the afternoon.

This is one of my favorite race weekends in Texas (although I hear Lago is good -- this will be my first year doing Lago), so I'm stoked!

Open Uber Geezer at Vahlburg and Open Geezer at Pace. Looks like decent weather both days, highs in the 70's.

Somewhat skinny climber dude in the orange and blue kit trying to pull back the break.

I think I'm going to bring the Addict out for a shakedown run. If not I'll be on the Fuji Team.

I am doing Walburg. Cat 5, my very first actual USAC road race. My goals are modest: a) stay upright, and b) finish. I'm a little nervous. I have been riding ATC a lot and know I am not really competitive with that group as far as fitness, but heck with it, I'm in anyway.

Did it. It was good fun, but most of it felt like a very squirrelly, not terribly fast group ride, with at least one total moron who for no apparent reason, bumped several people pretty hard, including me. I felt safer riding right in front much of the time, so of course when things finally got going I was already kinda spent. Next time I'll budget my energy a little better. Also want to get out of the 5s ASAP.

I'll keep a lookout for you RacerX, I'm racing M35+ too.

Good luck RacerX and UT_Dude!

Since I don't have an Austinbikes kit yet, I'll be wearing this generic kit. I'm the guy behind the Bike Barn rider.
