    OMG can we get the season started now?!?!?!?!?

    I am so tired of winter... ready to get some racing. I don't care that I'm fat and my ftp is down 50 watts. I feel the need. The need for speed.

    i hear you, man, but i live in NYC. Your winter may be cold, but my winter has black ice on the ground. Oh that and the fact that i'm fat and my ftp is not where it should be...

    Copperas Cove... I hope it's decent weather. I'll be coming off a week-plus of work travel and jet lag... bound to be a high degree of suckage. Can't wait.

    Sure go race with a roof over your head...the rest of us will be freezing our cojones off!

    I'm not in too big a hurry...Tour of New Braunfels will be my first race (assuming that they have a 40+ open) then it will be Alsatian and the races seem to come fast and furious after that...by the end of May I'll have my fill of racing for a bit.

    Probably the 40+, but maybe the 3/4. Depends on the team consensus since we have some new 4's this year and this might be a good mentoring experience for them

    Ouch, I thought we had it bad..

    Looking forward to March, first RRs to kick off the season around here. They will be cold and wet, and people will complain, but I can't wait.

    My first race is in a couple weeks, but I'm just treating it is training. First peak in mid March, then Memorial Day.

    There's really nothing like looking over at a mud splattered, soaking wet and shivering bike racer and saying "Ain't this ******* EPIC?"

    You can see their FTP drop.

    ^^ Master of the mindgames, but yes. The average FTP drops about 15W in the rain. 30W when it's cold and wet. Just makes it easier for me.
