Anyone else in? I just registered for 30+ and 35+. Hope to see some of you there!
I'm registered for 45+ and may do the 50+. 45+ is the target race for our Masters team since only two of us are over 50.

Just got back. Well this was a good experience for me - first time I've done one of these State champ events. The 30+ and 35+ were good clean races, I didn't see anything close to sketchy riding. Challenged for the first 30+ prime but came up 1 bike length short. Surprisingly, this burned too many matches and I had to recovery the rest of the race; in fact I went off the back with 1 to go. Oh well.
I had about 2 minutes to cut my number off and get in line for the 35+ race. My legs came back quickly and I hung on the whole race, finishing towards the back, but at least not dead last!
With a little more specific training, I'll do much better next year. It was only a 27.2 MPH average in the 35+.
Interesting. The 45+ race was 27.4 MPH. Not much of a difference. The race started out slower than I expected but obviously ramped up pretty well. It was fast enough that Thurlow couldn't get away and he tried.

i skipped the masters races and did the 3s and the pro1/2/3. 20th in the 3s, i sat up when i saw i would make the top 10. 7th in the pro1/2/3.
