Riding on the back of the 35+ was begging God for an oxygen mask. Riding on the back on the 5's was flicking buggers.

    Pablo got 5th in that 5 race for the second week going. Good show kid.

    P.S. They don't call it Horsesh!t Hill for nothing. It even smelled like horsesh!t today (damp road).

    P.P.S. Racing @ 25-35 mph in the pitch black sucks. The race started pre-dawn (God forbid they wait ten extra minutes) and there were sections with NO illumination. That was spooky. It will be a little better each week. This DST in March is really stupid.

    I thought it went well. Took the lead in the series, and put another guy in the top five. Would have been nice if we could have won the race.

    All things considered, great job. I ran into the winner's lead out guy @ Piermont Bicycle @ about 9AM. I look at this dude, who is built like he could have led Tom Boonen out @ the Tour of Flanders, and suddenly the over-my-head nature of 35+ racing became crystal clear.

    Oh well. There's always next week. Maybe the new cable routing will help.

    I wish I had a video of Gary coming up to me after the race, giving me an attaboy pat on the back and almost knocking me to the tarmac. That had to be classic.

    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    Sorry, Incorrect.

    I've never seen it like it was this AM. There were a couple of dicey stretches of 100+ meters where you couldn't see the road surface at all. Street lights must have been out. It really was spooky.

    Correct. In fact that's the spot where I cratered and rolled my bars forward.

    He was in our race? The guy who won is from the g-island, and had team mates that were virtually useless.

    You know what g? I got shelled, covered with muck, humiliated, and almost decked by my own friggin team mate after the race and I STILL enjoyed it.

    What's wrong with me?

    Very happy you had a good result. You sure train hard enough.

    He claimed to be the winner's 'lead-out man'. I'll take your word for it, I was riding on the back of the 5 field and we crossed a few minutes after your race ended.

    Actually that was kind of cool, even if you get shelled in your race you can get a workout by latching onto another, I think if you lay low and stay out of everyone's way you're not impeding anyone's racing.
