    new team for 2010

    i've officially moved onto an "elite" (i.e. cat 1/2) squad for 2010. I'm excited about it as there's an opportunity to race with some really good bike racers, but a bit intimidated as well. I better go train.

    anyone else switching for next year?

    Same team this year, but with a more talented/expanded roster. I have high hopes.

    Congrats. Very cool indeed.

    I've been asked to come to a team but haven't made a decision yet.

    I'm racing attached this year, I really missed the team dynamic last year. I missed the whole racing bit too, but having teammates that are fun sure is nice.

    hey will, come north a bit! - my team raced quite aggressively last year in the 3s and while a bunch are moving up this year there are a bunch of other guys that will be attacking the races repeatedly this coming year. We have solid TT guys as well (pro triathletes racing TTs between world cup events)

    Who did you guys get?

    Technically, I'll be on the same team. New sponsor and some more horsepower. Should be a lot of fun.

    New team after 3 years off. The team is actually a new off-shoot of an older team as well. Still trying to decide if I go with the new team with the old title sponsor or the old team with the new title sponsor.

    same collegiate team (NC State), still unattached probably for the USAC season next year. Kinda late to get on a squad, and I'm not even sure who the teams are in Charlotte. I think I'll do unattached, try to get some results, and then hopefully someone will actually want me (instead of me wanting them) for 2011 season.

    Subs, you win the hand wringing award for team decision making.

    Right now the plan is to do a couple of stealth unattached efforts mid season and see how it goes. I have a team that has offered a spot mid year if I want it. but it is going to come down to health. Gotta decide what the benefits would be versus just going lone wolf for the year if my Doc let's me get all serious and stuff considering I would probably have to target and recover rather than having a calendar.

    MRI either right before Christmas or right after will tell the tale about training and the immediate future.

    I'm on a new team for next year. I guess it doesn't really count as a new team considering I was never really on an old team, just a club. I've only done one "official" team ride so far but it seems like an awesome group. I don't know how much I will be racing (because of motocross), but when I do it should be with a good group.

    Welcome to stupid fast. Nice thing with a 1/2 team is you can go contribute then if you get blown off, oh well.

    Same great group for me. Changes: I'm planning on doing more 1/2 stuff as training for Gila this year, need the speed and distance. Otherwise I'll race down an age group with the young 'uns and just do my racing age at Nats and States.

    Same group for me as well. Barring another injury I'll likely be on the "travel" half our our elite team, so I'll get to do Utah, Cascade, Gila, and all the other big ones west of the Mississippi. Looking forward to it, should be a good year.

    Collegiate is still the same, obviously. Goals for that season are win more races than last year (3) and have a go at Nationals. The Wisconsin course will probably suit me pretty well.

    A few young guys who mostly raced collegiate last year, and an ex-pro triathlete who recently switched back to road racing. It's going to be a young team.

    I've heard the rumors that you guys are going to be quite the force this year. Pretty damn impressive roster. Who's the new sponsor?

    The sponsor is from within the cycling industry. Lots of useful product and a good amount of cash. The checks have been signed and everything, I just don't want to name them until we officially announce. Some people know already so you might hear it. I just don't want to put it in writing here.

I think if I devoted more than 2 days a week to training and 2 races a month to this whole thing, I might be kinda decent.

    Begin the naysaying.
