Marblehead Circuit Race Report: another win...

short version for now:

4/5 race.
9 laps of 2.2 miles.

Lap 4: 3 man break, i'm in it.

Lap 5: Down to 2: Jeff (from NEBC) and I.

Last 2 miles: Jeff sits up I hit hard, taste breakfast a bit, do my best Cancellara impression and finish 10 seconds or so ahead of the chase.

So much fun.

Nice job. I woke up this morning and saw how cold it was so I went back to bed... That's why people like you win and people like me read about it

I can't wait until I can post a thread titled "Another Win." But I have to win at least one first. You guys make me sick.

Well done.

I have some video of the 4/5 race. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izftgcDfZ7M

I think it is the 4/5 finish around the :35 second mark in the vid.

Given how many times a reply to a thread is "use search" or just a link to another, thread, I'm not surprised.

I think threads should automatically lock after a few months. Only an admin or the OP (for updates) should be able to post to it.
