    Man, I beat myself most of the time. That's the problem.

    This time, I meant to type Strava and instead tapped out Squadra. Brain-signal-transposition.

    I'll be visiting family in Vacaville/Davis this Memorial Day weekend. Wondering if there are any group rides/planned rides this Sunday/Monday? Thanks!!

    I would do this ASAP if this is a race that usually fills up. The promoter is under no obligation to break his commitment to USAC for field sizes just because you upgraded. I've seen guys go home because they showed up at the race with their authorization in hand only to find the field full.

    I'm on it. The good thing is that the 4's will likely sell out (65 pre-reg'd), so I'll make room for one more. The 3's are usually a bit thinner (33 pre-reg'd).

    It'd be fun to do Mt Hamilton RR on a whim, but I don't have the time available to ride back to the car
    Anyone doing it, still awake and checking bf, and have spare room on the drive back?

    Eh, would have been fun but a bit too painful for second ride after a week off. Climbed Kings today instead and was super slow.

    Dash for Cash tomorrow! Prime every lap sounds exciting... I might actually try to win a prime for once.

    Exciting and probably fast. I did it last year as my second race, but I was a 5 and we got no $$. So, the pace was pretty mild.

    I'll be down there for two of the races tomorrow and am hoping to survive. If I win some cash, all the better.

    Maybe it'll be fast enough that it feels like one of the more interesting crits? I think it's interesting how different stuff like Cat's Hill and Santa Cruz Classic (hill sprint every lap) are from Red Kite type crits. Flat 4 corner crits seem extremely mild in comparison.

    Its a bit of a drive for you, but you may like the Auburn crit (its on Sunday). The course is about a mile that starts with a climb, then loops back around with a fast technical descent (3 90-degree turns) back into old town. The hill isn't a killer, but combined with the descent things get strung out. Fast guy's strava of the course: Bike Ride Profile | Downtown Auburn Crit 2nd near Auburn | Times and Records | Strava

    Yeah I thought that looked fun, but I'm doing Red Kite on Sunday. Much closer to me, and also looks like fun - South half of Wente RR

    Negative. Had a few teammates in the 4's race and ride with the guy that won the 4s race here and there (heard he basically rode away from the field on the first climb; nat'l champion MTB'er riding road for fun).

    I opted out of Pesadero. Didn't have the heart for that race right now.

    Folsom Historic Crit and Nevada City or TriValley Crit this weekend...who's doing what?

    Not too thrilled about the course for the Folsom Historic crit, but I won a free entry and it's a mile from home, so I can't pass that up. I think I'll be skipping out of Nevada City though.

    What's the Folsom course like?

    I'm doing Tri-Valley crit mostly b/c I'm leading the omnium, and also it's so much closer to home.

    But those Red Kite crits get pretty repetitive and it would be nice to change it up.. maybe next year.

    Can't miss out if you're leading the omnium. Double points, too?

    Its about a mile up the road from the usual Folsom crit course and is pretty bland out and back with a 180 at one end and a round-a-bout at the other. They were initially planning for a course in old town with some short punchy hills, but having the tour of california take over may have been one bike event too many for the year. It sounds like they may have the old town course up next year.

    I'm doing Tri Valley as well, because it's close and I can race twice. I'm somehow 4th in the cat 4 omnium because other people skip so many races.

    Well I am back from bumming around the Pakistan on motorcycle for three weeks.
    The good news is that I wasn't kidnapped by Taliban.
    The bad news I crashed motorcycle there about two weeks ago. I had an appointment with ortho today. I have a fractured clavicle and possible tear in rotary calf. The MRI on Monday will confirm the latter. So no racing until July at the earliest, and no intense riding on the bike until late June. I am still hopping to do 4th of July Crit.

    The biggest risk if I crash I could displace the fracture and then it's surgery, and even longer recovery. Doctor said I probably shouldn't ride at all, otherwise there is a chance it will take longer to heal. So choice is loose even more fitness by not riding and trying to regain it back, or try to keep some kind of fitness but might take longer to get back to racing. I guess I'll be a 4 for another season.

    It could have been much worse. I believe armor in my jacket saved the shoulder, and my boots saved my foot from heavy laceration and broken bones. The boot has a deep cut going through the leather and all the layers. On a foot I just had a small nick, and some bruising.
