    Did it last year. Short RR + short crit + long drive = nope.

    A few of my teammates are going out there from CT. Lots of climbing I guess, so not one for me.

    I say every year that I'm going, never have. this year, no exception.

    lots of guys from my district have made the trip, and I can think of 3 who've won the overall in cat 3 or cat 2. all have come back saying it was very well organized, not overly selective, and for us mid atlantic-ers an oasis where no cold weather gear was necessary.

    I'll be there in the 3's. I just hope it doesn't rain. The forecast is calling for a 40% chance on Saturday and Sunday.

    mmm Gila. Love that race.

    I was really tempted to go because it's a 2-only race and I need to start racking up the points, but oh well. Good luck Esammuli!

    I wanted to go very badly but it was a trade off. V-day with the chick buys me a bunch more race weekends away(and my fitness is lacking right now).

    6th place in the Cat 3 TT. 32:04 ~10 seconds from 4th/ 40 seconds off the lead.

    Not bad for 143 lbs.

    Nope, not yet. I think they'll be up in a couple hours.

    Just called and got the update. My bike was 7th in the 4's Not too shabby considering he'd never really been on a TT bike before.

    One of my teammates/friends put up 2nd in the p/1/2 women. She's a freak. Taking this semester off because she's being sent to europe for a month or so. I think she beat all the guys that went down except for a Cat 1.

    Maybe they're climbing before/after? I was under the impression they're going to do mega climbing. Is the course different from last year?

    Same as last year. One little hill, maybe 5%, you do it a few times depending on what class you're racing.

    It's huge by Texas standards and small by Cali.

    You're thinking of Gila.

    I love seeing stuff like the #1 cat 4 guy would have finished 17th in the Pro 1/2 cat.

    that's pretty cool!

    There are separate pro/1 and Cat 2's for this race.

    He would have been ~40th in the Pro/1. Still a very good result though. He put up a better time then I did.
