Fulton PA Road Race

So who all is going to be there? Any thoughts on the course, as I have watched the video but have not had time to drive out there.

Yep same here, doing the 4/5 along with my friend Mike. I however have not been feeling to great yesterday and today, so tomorrow performance is to be determined. I figure worst case, put down 1 lap and if I am not feeling great just call it a day there.

Also have a Crit on Sunday morning down in Richmond VA, so we will see how things shape up this weekend.

One of the toughest races I've done. Managed 8th place in the 4/5. I need to train more.

Glad to see them enforcing the yellow line rule.

Good times today. The first lap was sketchy, accordion affect for every roller and a wheel car parked on a blind descending corner with no shoulder.... Not a big fan of an uphill finish; it really hurt

Ended up DNF due to my front derailleur not wanting to shift down on the first climb. To bad cause I was really feeling pretty good this morning.

I really wish I could have come out for this, but my parents wouldn't have been to happy being dragged to a race 2 hrs away for the first weekend I've been home in months haha. I've been feeling awesome on the bike lately as well.

Yep that was me. I was like "no way, this is not happening" fallowed by "This is happening", fallowed by hand in air . In either case stuff happens, I made up for it today at the Brayn Park Crit. Also meant to introduce myself, but you disappeared at the end. Met a couple of the other guys on the forum so that was pretty cool.

I wish that would solved the problem but it would just not shift down and next thing I know they were all up the hill already and the wheel car was already there.

That said I was able to recreate the problem last night at home, so I was happy I was not imagining things. Think its a cable lub issue but still am messing with it a little.
