    Two teammates of mine in the Pro/1 field.

    I, however, am ~2000mi east of San Dimas, for quite some time.

    Not as much as the Pro/1 hurt last year. I was 28th last year, but have some teammates this year who weren't looking forward to the suffering like I was. Combined with the winter I had, I decided to do 35+ with them.

    after watching thurlow work yesterday, i do not envy you. then again, i've never seen you race, so for all i know he may not be all that impressive


    good luck to anyone who is doing it. i waited too long to register, so i'll be watching the start of the oceanside ironman instead

    I've been racing against Thurlow for over 15 years. The guy is really fast. He is slowly starting to show signs of aging, but it will be a really good race. A lot of the masters guys are actually picking his teammate so we'll see how it works out. There are other guys in the field that are plenty fast so I think it will be really fun. With the exception of nationals, I've only done a handful of masters races since I turned 30. Masters races generally seem negative to me so I concentrate on the Pro/1-2 races. My teammates convinced me to do 35+ for SDSR, so we'll see how it goes.

    I'm not. Can't justify the time off of work for a hobby. However, I planned my Saturday morning ride to stop by and watch the end of the morning groups and the start of the second groups for the road race stage.

    Ill be there in the 5's. Last 5's race whoohoo.
    Thurlow was amazing yesterday. 3 man break in the 45 plus and took the win by 5 seconds or so. 2nd race directly after (ie. no rest) was solo off the front with two laps to go and a 40 second lead, and his chain broke. Both breaks from near the beginning of the race, the guys a monster.

    We're on spring break. I'd take the day off anyway. It is a hobby, but it makes me a much nicer person.

    Lies. All lies. I know your racing age. I know there are still spots open in 35+. I know registration doesn't close for another 7 hours. Get to it mr. top ten in three races this weekend!!!!

    Oh...and I'm in. Which is lovely because the cold I've been trying to avoid catching for a week has finally settled in and called my body home.

    Hell yeah I'm in, SDSR was my favorite race last year!

    My goal this year is to try and break 16 minutes on the hill climb. It's an ambitious goal, but I don't think its completely outside the realm of possibility.

    If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, then come sit next to me.

    Man, I'm sorry to hear that. Give him a get well from me (we raced against each other one weekend in Cali).

    Ferretti. He won Boulevard,goes uphill well, and knows the tt course well (I know it pretty good myself). He won the 2s race here three years ago. Meeker could probably win the rr and the crit, however, I've never seen him tt (uphill or flat) fast.

    Ahh, well as a teacher I get many perks (office hours close at 3:00, 3 months of vacation, collective bargaining, etc.) but there's no such thing as a slow day at the office, and the hours are set in stone. I'll look for you on Sat. You're with LaGrange, right? Which bike?

    We are in slow mode right now at work, next month things will start to pick up as we head into sweeps.

    I ride for PAA not La Grange, I'll be on a white LOOK 595 Friday and Saturday and white Orbea Asphalt on Sunday. We had a shot at the GC but our main guy is out so we are looking for some top 10 finishes.

    Damn, I was hoping I wouldn't have to worry about him. Having said that I don't think he'll be that far ahead if at all after day 1. Allen on the other hand I think is going to kill in the TT. RR and crit though not so much.
    So who's out for you guys? Your 4's leader?
