Are there any longer videos (they always seem to be 'teasers')? Great production value and good racing.
And a rainy one same guy/team:
https://vimeo.com/47386280 I find most people don't have the patience for longer videos, which is why they usually end us as "teasers." That and the fact that I usually don't have time to work on these. Might be a good watch if you're stuck on rollers for an hour.
Really cool to see when he chooses to work in that one.
huh, I guess they flipped the course for Tour of Austin. That last climb before the finish is pretty steep.
more exciting than riding in circles that's for sure. but damn, 37 mph leadout speed... That's fast...
Yeah, that'll control the pace pretty well.
I wish we had something like that around here (that I could go to weekly). Sup, Laguna Seca... (such a brutal course, though!)
I wish I could apply to UT Austin for grad school, but the chem e department is super competitive, and the mat e department doesn't offer PhD's. I really want to go to that school... Maybe if I apply to the chem e department, and get a dual adviser from the mat e phd program...... long shot, anyway..
This video and report of the P/1/2 race is the best I've seen. It gives a very good idea of what this particular race is like. The rider is a Cat 1 out of Birmingham, AL. Even if you'll never do the race, it's cool to watch.
Synopsis is that the failure rate at the former is really high compared to the latter, and the end product isn't much different.
Nice videos...i am trying to get some knowledge from this.
When I came to TX for my job, I went to a boiler room type of software consulting company. Rewarded taking huge risks, very competitive culture, charged hourly rates comparable to some expensive law firms -- for coders. They bought talent at about 40% more than the industry norm. I rolled through some really challenging interview questions and enjoyed the process, got the big offer, and thought I was going to be the hammer. Then I show up and there are all these graduate-level beasts from MIT, CMU, Stanford, Harvard, etc. on my team. Small fish big pond. I had to re-jigger my motivation on that one to be successful.
"We're really just here for the beer."
If you're in Austin during DST, find your way here on a Thursday night. We'll find you a bike.
WR - Why would anybody go to Austin without a bike? :innocent:
Bring beer that's more free than the free beer.
<edit>oh you mean the racer? She'll be in our race...open women race with masters men, and I believe she often skips the wm 3/4 race</edit>
I might be down there again in October. BF take over of the cat 5's?
