    UF race weekend

    Who's showing? I'll be there from UA with a couple other guys.

    What's up with no road race?

    I very well might be coming out to play.

    Of course having a racing age of 55 would put us in much different sandboxes.

    I have to go to a wedding that weekend. Somehow, the fact that I've raced the last 3 weekends, and will race the next two after this weekend, makes my wife think that she can expect me to go to her neices' wedding.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    So, I read that as you just can't send a nice gift and stay happily married.

    I should be there.

    TT Sat and Crit Sun for me.

    Can't wait to race in the warmth for a change. (32 degrees at start time last Sat., and 33 degrees on Sun. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!).

    Who can tell me what to expect regarding the crit course on Sunday?

    Most everyone who has already posted in this thread..

    What do you want to know?

    You've got cobblestones in the first two corners, that second one is a little messy. About 50' past the second corner is a manhole cover in the road. Nice long stretch after that before you get to the last two turns, which really are more like one giant turn if you take them at speed, then the stretch to the finish. Finish is slightly uphill on wide open road.

    Any 4s doing the crit? Like I said, I'm probably in but it will kind of suck to drive up from Miami to race 35 minutes with 7 people...

    Don't forget that there is construction for a new hotel across from Lillian's. Because of that there is a chain link fence that has taken out some of the road. Yuck.

    How does racing on that divided road work? I think we go down that road. I honestly don't know the course yet so I could be totally wrong about the existence of the divided road. I know there is one near there.

    From the far corner (corner 4) you're on the left side of the road. Then it opens up all the way through the finish line. When the median starts again, the usually put us on the right side. It'll be interesting to see if they route us on the left to avoid the construction though. That'll make the turn a little tighter.

    Missed whole weekend due to sickness. Almost went anyway for the squad, but decided a healthy Mike is better next weekend, than someone prolonging the agony. Tough courses next week. And our team is starting to gel.

    Good job to all you Gators.

    Our TTT was 3rd place, we got two guys in the top-10 of cat3 (5th and 6th), and I won a prime.

    I got 11th in the C's, but I was more trying to get off the front with someone. Of course no one would let us go. I caught third in one of the primes. I got 7th in the 5's with the guy in front of me dying with 25 meters to go and me having no where to go.
