    Good races... the chewd up center of the track.. didn't help your position location...
    Low and inside.. OR up and outside were the smoothest through the turns... must have felt like riding on cooblesetone at the 3/4 speed.

    I'm thinking a circle track crit probably isn't the ideal showcase for your abilities...

    When is the first RR or technical crit?

    I'll road race on the 15th in PA. I cannot wait. I'll be bringing so much frustration to the line.

    Elevation profile ain't terribly steep - but it'll do for at least a little bit of selection.

    300 watts just to stay with the pack in a 4/5? Darn sandbaggers. 8)
    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.

    Damn, Tom! NP of 348 is 128% of my FTP!

    I might as well hang it up now and go back to rec riding.
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169
