This was from todays race, almost as fast as Ryan Trebon?
And here is a picture of the remount
Cervelo S1 2010 (road) Lemond Alpe d'Huez 2004 (road)
Trek 4500 2006 (mtb) Gary Fischer Utopia 2008 (commuter)
Redline Conquest 2009 (cross) Redline 925 2009 (single speed)
Nice. How'd you finish?
I got a picture today of a guy in almost exactly that same position, except his bike wasn't under him.
Finished 6th in the Masters 30+ and this was my first time doing a 60 minute race, and I would say it isn't much harder then 45.
How do you like the Topolinos for CX?
2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169
Seriously though, your form looks pretty good to me. Oh, and congrats on the nice finish.
What's up with 30+ being masters? It's 35+ here and I think that's too low. Isn't the age cutoff supposed to be indicative of people getting slower? I know we don't want to admit that, but really....
I was referring to my dismount/remount when compared to the video of him I know I am nowhere as fast on the bike. As far as the 30+ that is the way the one series by us run theirs, but all the others are 35+ not sure why. And as far as getting slower when older, I had 2 of the fast 50+ guys pass me, they were started 20 seconds after we were.Originally Posted by Andy_K
I've discovered that looking at the way riders self-select their categories brings out my OCD side in a big way. Not because I don't want to race with sandbaggers, but just because it's wrong. The guys who should cat down bug me as much as the guys who should cat up. I find myself wanting to re-sort the whole field.
i will probably have a shot of me in my race that is not so cool...
did i get myself in a jam for my first? i looked back at my confirmation receipt and this is what i read:

I agree that 30 is too young, with 35 or 40 more realistic.
Promoters like the masters race because a lot of masters will double-up on races. Age does come with its "privileges".
