    Lovely day for a road race tomorrow




    I've swapped in an alu front wheel for braking. I don't have any embrocation but I'm wondering if I should baby oil my legs. Downside is it makes the road grime stick a bit...

    This race was seriously wet last year too, damn it.

    I love racing in terrible weather conditions just because a lot of other riders hate it so much. Make sure you wear something that will keep you warm even when you are soaked. 10 degrees Celsius isn't that bad if you have the right clothing. It gets much, much worse when the temperatures dips below 5 degrees

    Tights sound good to me.
    I suggest wearing what you normally wear in that weather. Comfort > fashion in bad weather.
    Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike
