After reading AJets, AZTallRiders, Hermes and others experiences racing I'm going to jump into doing races as well. I do a lot of riding with a number of the licensed riders in the area anyway plus I'm getting tired of just riding with recreational riders. While they are a great group to spend time with, their riding skills have diminished and are keeping me from being the rider I know I can be.
In fact I think I'll pull my extra large Raleigh steel frame with downtube shifters down from the garage ceiling and use it with it's Mavic 32 spoked wheels to race on. That way if I do wind up crashing I will not have damaged any of my carbon bikes or expensive components.
I've been searching for a another aspect of riding to recharge the juices and I think racing might just be it! Anyone else planning to jump in to the racing scene??
