any chance you made it out last night? the torrential downpour that came for the 3/4 and 123 races sure made for some crazy fun before they called it off for the flooding. Within about a lap of riding in the rain the back side seemed to be one huge 3-4 inch deep puddle, its amazing how fast that place collects water... or maybe it was just raining that hard.
I finally raced. Tons of fun, tried some things, but in the end the most important thing I should have been doing I didn't try hard enough to do:
Stay on wheels and in the pack.
Anyways, I finished 8th...out of 9 finishers. People had flats...actually I had a flat too, but my front wheel only started losing air after I had rolled across the line so I didn't notice it.
Here's the ride on strava...I think I need to work on more threshold efforts: http://www.strava.com/activities/77411316
Congrats, dobrado. Is that on an old airport? That looks hella fun.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
Congrats on your first race. Floyd Bennet Field is a great place to learn/practice dealing with wind.
Your profile says you have a 2.1, which is what I have. Since I will be doing crits for the first time next year... How do you think the bike handled in the race? I may have an oppty to upgrade to something else and keep the 2.1 for backup so I am curious.
