    We can start listing the guys old enough to be your dad who could kick your ass if you'd like. I'd suggest you just stop digging though.

    Dammit I hate injuries I'm feeling so slow right now, having trouble holding over 200 watts for 20 mins whereas a month ago I was doing 240 and felt like I could have pushed that higher without too much trouble.

    Going to try to do some SST today, then easy commuting tomorrow because my stress balance is trending sharply down after a hard week of catchup, then a long tempo ride on Saturday.

    Another 7 weeks until I'm willing to risk group riding/mass-start racing again, hopefully I'll gain back some of the fitness by then.

    This wind isn't helping my confidence either.

    **** the master's race is on par or just a bit slower than the 1/2 race when the big boy masters show up. i like to poke fun at the old people, but in no way can u say they are slow with any type of seriousness in your tone.

    Clearly new to the internet...Join Date 2010, you're not gonna make it to the masters by taking internetz so serious, I mean whats your resting heart rate while reading bikeforums? At one point I used to get a pretty good TSS while reading the Road Cycling forums, but lately its been hovering around 30 TSS for an hour. I don't know, I gotta work on that.

    Why do you post here? All you seem to do is pick fights with people. Do you enjoy being annoying?

    I decided to start racing at 61, and my first race was in 55+ Masters Open. I thought the pace would be more...gentlemanly, but instead I found myself riding with guys who had 30-40 years of experience at kicking ass. There I go, thinking again...

    I bet I know at least one that may not woop your ass but would give you a hell of a run.

    I've been dropped by a dude thats 61 in the hills of SoCal. Never in any kind of flats unless I was out of shape.

    The best thing about cycling is you can still stay competitive and enjoy it most of your life

    This guy was pretty inspiring when I first read about him

    For ****s and giggles go to USAC and get the ranking for Cat 1 in criterium for the entire country. Then take a look at the ages.
    There is one in our parts (Ex knows who I am talking about) wears the rainbows on his sleeves and still races 1/2 at the age of 59.

    just to clarify ui mean the masters race is slower to the 1/2 in terms of pure speed/power needed to stay in, but the winner of the masters race could mos tlikely win the 1/2 race. not saying the winner of the masters race is slower than the 1/2 field

    No I know exactly what you are saying.

    When I race, I always go there with soul-crushing in mind. My own.

    I'm 17 and get crushed by everyone. I go to every race with "I'm going to get dropped because I suck" in my mind.
