    Agreed. If you watch he comes into the big black guy (I believe a good friend of Rahsaan's) you see the elbows come out. Beautiful. Cameraman took some chances.

    Masters 35+

    Videographer is the teammate of Charon Smith (Surf City black/blue) who placed 2nd. Tinstman (MRI green) was able to hold on for first. He went on to win the P/1/2 a few races later.

    Couldn't remember his name (Charon) - he is one big dude though.
    MRI and our team ride the same bikes though I love their paint.

    Didnt know I raced with you that day Monkeyclaw. That was my first race ever. I am in the O2 kit. I got boxed in during the last lap, well, more like I didnt have a clue about positioning and came in with the pack.

    This was my first cat 4 race.

    This is the full 37 minutes.


    This is a 5 minute highlight video.

    Christ. In my region, you and half your Crash4 companions would have been DQ'd for frequent and blatant centerline violations.

    That would be me at 6:55- the sorry bastard who dropped his chain at the base of the grade. Very disappointing. At least it made for a good 30 minute threshold effort trying to re-attach...

    I think they took it easy on us because we were in a park that was all but closed to traffic with the exception of people carefully making their way to park for the later races. I'll definitely try to maneuver to the front without touching yellow next time.

    All but closed to traffic? I don't think so. Count the cars.

    a couple of notes

    1) try using the drops more. from the video it seemed you were in the hoods 100% of the time. you'll save a lot of energy/it's safer to use the drops more

    2) at 1:30 (in the highlight video) please please please check your six before moving across the road like. the kelly rider almost slammed into you, that could have been bad.

    The CL violations are what get me in the video above. Okay, it was a "closed" course, but if they are telling you CL is enforced, then why not follow it?

    That was hard to watch. So much braking/near contact and riders were all over the place.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    pfff they're just old people....



    note i'm joking, as someone the other day jumped at me for making that joke, and i just sat there thinking "could they not tell by the giant smile and stupid laugh afterwards that i'm joking? or by the fact that i get beat by the guys who win the masters 1/2/3 race?"

    Video below is also from Black Hills 2013, the Cat5, my first race.
    The video is unedited so here are some key points you could skip to:
    5:32 - Race start
    18:30 - I get dropped on the start/finish climb
    21:55 / 26:55 - Result of a crash
    28:20 - Me being pulled off
    29:40 - Last lap
    32:55 - Finish 1st place
    33:28 - Team mates, in pink, with an awesome 3rd and 6th spot!
