You guys need to HTFU. Why, back in my day...
Used to race Norcal many years ago. Got a question. The Dunnigan road races started going west up the hill and then south. There was an area before the downhill the road was literally ground up to a gravel road. It was nasty with gravel and loose pavement. Did they ever fix that stretch of road?
Dunnigan has been clockwise for as long as I remember. And while the road surface is crappy in places (it is a VeloPromo race after all), I don't recall any gravel. Are you possibly thinking of Leesville Gap?
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
Good article about the Early Bird series: http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/page/t...4#.Uq50iY29Kc0
It's comin up soon!!
I got online to register for the Early Birds, and noticed they have "Cat 5 under 30" and "cat 5 30+".
Well... I'm 29, so racing age will be 30. Not sure if it matters which one I sign up for? Anyone know?
Yep, they emailed back and said 30+. But that means I can do both training races if I want
Yeah, I jumped in with the U30 group a couple of years back as a spry 40 yr old. No one seemed too concerned at reg since the "results" aren't recorded.
Been down and out sick this week, so bored and thinking about racing and watching countless race videos.
Who all is coming out to Cal Aggie on Saturday?
edit: at least the Tour Down Under is on the TV.
I'll be there! Excited to do a real race.
Also been enjoying the tdu, finally bike racing is back on tv!!
Are you familiar with the route/course? I wasn't, so I drove it on Sunday on my way home from early bird. It isn't too bad, a bit of a climb coming in to the finish, but nothing too extreme. The only part that may be problematic is the turn into the finish/bump. It's pretty tight, off camber, with a steep drop down a shoulder and barb wired fence on either side. I imagine people will be gearing up pretty hard coming into the turn as there is about 300m to the finish from there. People may be strung out a bit though from the climb coming in to that turn though.
Ends shortly after patterson and cross roads
