    You can have all the springtime success you want. Just remember (this is being serious) that one of your goals is to get on to a big team. Teams will remember your late season results better than early season results

Over thanksgiving, I will be out in the hill country with my family to get some riding in. The other will just be a basecamp from home with as much riding as I can stand.
    You get christmas/new years eve off? You can take 2 days before christmas weekend, and 3 days after christmas for 13 days.

    I'm burning the 3 days after christmas for 11 days! Having the eves and the day's off paid off good this year!

    I'm sort of not really digging the MTB riding I've been doing after buying one a couple months ago. Seems overly dangerous for a roadie just looking for something different. I would enjoy dirt roads with some rocks and lots of climbing. But this whole roots and rocks everywhere, and take a left on a switchback and don't look to your right because you'll fall 100 ft (intermediate trail in GA), really sucks!

    A couple people have mentioned MTB racing. I haven't done any (yet), but plan to at some point. The CX races I've been doing are similar. There are 2 things that I like about them. 1. The lunatics on my team 2. I can crash and not be too worse for the wear

    Road crashes can get pretty serious in a hurry, and I have to admit that I think too much about them.

    I spent my Saturday like that also----and I crashed. Wasn't bad injury wise, but it was bad enough that I never caught back onto the small field. So the race ended up being a time trial type event. still good times.

    New bike built. With heavy training wheels on (32h handbuilts) and a heavy loaner seatpost came in at 16.4 pounds so should be good for my fata$$

    Take away the megaphone and replace the Luna chicks skin suit with my wife's underwear and heckling pros with singing show tunes to her cats and you'd be pretty close.

    I was genuinely interested in the weight of cycling apparel, made a post in Road Cycling, and they moved it to a forum I don't have access to... great...
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    another reason why not to post in the 41.

    i do occasionally contribute to benign threads like "Pictures of your bicycle near water", or "Best places to live (to cycle)"

    It helps if you don't troll in that area in the past before making a legitimate thread. Haha.

    I assume you mean mass-start legal. Unknown. I am waiting for the Giro Air Attack Shield. I don't know about that one, either.
