Madera Stage Race

Anyone going?

I'm racing M35 123. Couldn't get out of work for Friday's TT, but that's ok since me and uphill TT's don't play nice together...

First race as a master, man it hurt when i got my license this year. i may scuff the age out so i'm not always reminded. but why, oh why do they force us to sign AND write our age on every waiver??

you seem confused, if it's a stage race you have to do all of the stages.

only the pro1/2s do friday. your race a crit and tt on sat and a rr on sunday

I'm guessing he is a 2 and since he couldn't make the friday suck fest he decided to race masters 1/2/3.

not confused at all. i couldn't get out of work on friday, so i'm racing M35 123 instead of the P12.

is the road race that bad? i've heard the pavement is pretty rough in sections, but have also been warned not to race clinchers because of the pinch flat danger.

any advice definitely appreciated.

It has a small section that is on par with Leesville. It is quite rough and flats are common, pinch and puncture.
