    I wish I lived with my bro in Temecula so I could do races that are actually going on now...
    Nebraska sucks for bike racing.

    Unfortunately, I will be missing this; instead i will be enjoying 80+ temps in Tempe, AZ and taking in some pre-season Angels baseball games. There will be much relaxing by the pool, too!

    I'll be doing the circuit race on Sunday.

    Does anybody else find this schedule idiotic?

    Sunday:
    Cat V: 7:30
    Cat IV: 7:35

    Cat III: 11:45
    Maters 35+: 11:50

    WOMEN CAT IV: 1:55
    MEN PRO1/2: 2:00


    Really, you're putting the slowest field of the day right before the fastest?

    I'll be in for yet another weekend of racing. I'm not looking forward to the early morning starts for the CAT IV races.

    I'm in

    And those seem like weird start times to me too. Anyone know if they staggered the times like that last year?

    I don't know what's wrong, man. I just can't engage. You guys are depressing me with your awesome results, and meanwhile I've only raced twice and almost died a few times.



    And my helmet doesn't match the new kit!

    From what I understood a few guys touched wheels and he got caught behind it. We watched him get dragged for about 40 or 50 feet though by a few of the other guys in the pack. To his credit, he got back up and finished the day and came out and raced sunday too.

    So it's funny we both have the points to move up a cat but are waiting until after San Dimas.

    That's when I have my peak scheduled for season and I think I would be better off in the 3s. Besides the damn thing fills up months in advance so it's hard to plan for if you're even close to upgrading.

    Hi,

    Probably Masters 45+ circuit race on Sunday. Anyone raced on this course before? They talk about it being mostly flat on the flier, but then they say a 21 is small enough for the hill. Is it a 39 X 21 hill or is it a big ring roller?
    Thanks.

    Definitely a big ring roller. The climbs might be 5-7% but are only about 30-50 meters long apiece and there are about 5 of them if I remember correctly. Definitely not completely flat, but not enough to drop anyone either.
