Tour of Atlanta

1 prologue, 1 crit, 4 circuits, 1 RR.

Who's in? I'm pretty sure I will be going, as will some of the other UF kiddies. It's going to be a really long weekend.

Most of the races are going to be taking place about 1 hour from me. The other is like 1 hour 45 min.

I just realized that there is no omnium for anyone but the p12. That sucks.

Basically, the weekend was dominated by people that were perfectly happy riding around in a pack until the finish. I don't have much of a sprint so I found myself attacking on almost every stage. Every attack failed, but at least I got some sort of a workout.

The RR was the bright, shiny spot of the weekend. I got into a 3 man break for about 10 miles. When we got caught, I recovered for 10 min and jumped on another break. It failed too. I cruised around in easy for the next hour. I think I finished in the top 10. A 14yr that outputs 5watts/kg won.

I'm not a big fan of Georgia Cup. I think that will be my last GC race.

Yeah. Racing in Georgia is a lot of fun. Racing the Georgia Cup races isn't.

You should think about doing the Georgia State Games up in Kennesaw in mid-July. There's no money on the line, but the races are just damned fun. However, if history repeats itself, the cat4 crit will be in a downpour (I'm assuming you're a 4).

BTW -- who are you and do you do the hipp rides?

The cat3 races looked difficult so I can't blame you for doing so few.

I might do those races. The crit course looks fun.

Yup, I'm a 4 now. Hopefully, if I stop racing like a moron, I will be able to upgrade to 3's soon.

I will probably be doing one of the hipp rides next week. I'll make sure to introduce myself.

I'll only be on Tuesdays ride, and most likely sitting in. Stuart's coming up, then Ocala, so it's time to ease up on the hard weekday rides.

BTW, I'll be the guy on the giant with the cycle-logic kit.
