Kudos to the 50+ Racing/Training Folks

My congratulations to all the folks in this thread which was started just a short time ago. It has really added a great new dimension to the 50+ sub forum. If you haven't followed it, check it out. You may be interested.

Here are some of the folks. I am sure I have missed many, but these showed up in a quick review of the thread. Who did I forget?

Some of these are placing nationally.

DnvrFox, thank you! You shouldn't count me among that group, I'm just a poser ;~)

I've been privileged to meet and watch, as well as ride with, several of the authors of that thread. One word - wow!

Absolutely! My hat goes off to them. I wish that I had had started riding again around 20 years ago so that I may have had the experience they are having. I ride hard, but at 64.75 years of age, I don't think that I can get anywhere near that caliber of riding.

I've learned a LOT from the stronger and more experienced racers - I consider them mentors. There is a lot of great information in the thread, and a wide range of experience is represented. Nobody should feel shy about jumping in.
