    Denzel Road Race/Wheels on Willy crit

    Who's going? My cat3 license is pending approval (I just got enough points!), so I will be kicking ass in cat4's and upgrading next week

    Look for me in the blue University of Illinois-Chicago kit on Saturday riding for fun, and the Wisconsin argyle kit, ready to rock Sunday's race. I have a black Pedal Force bike w/full Dura-ace and Niobium 30mm black wheels w/black Krylion tires that have yellow stripes. I'll be wearing gold sunglasses and driving a white Mazda Protege5 hatchback. No excuse for not seeing me, so say hi and introduce yourself.

    Will see you'se guys in Madison then. Will be at Monsters in Chicago Saturday and today I'm going bear hunting in Wauwatosa (Milw. suburb). Someone claims to have spotted a black bear, so I'm going in for the confirming pic ! Shoot and RUN ... that's my plan.

    I'm hopefully going both days. We'll see what work says (they scheduled me even though I requested off) but I'm definately in for WoW.
    Look for the Wheel & Sprocket kit in the 4's. I'm 18 so I should kind of stick out. White Klein with DA and Ksyrium Elites.

    No, you stick out because you're tall ... and you're at the FRONT!

    You'll be up there attacking with Recursive in the 1/2/3's race before long!

    I'm planning on going to both. Although I just read the WoW flyer and found out there is pre-registration, so hopefully there is still a spot in the 4/5s. Otherwise I will just be a spectator. I have a stock orange/white '05 Trek 1000 with cane creek volos, and I'll be in the blank white jersey w/red helmet... where is the smiley for "embarassed"?

    Race Report:
    The race went really well. Not. It started with Andy Crater, an ex pro on my team giving me some tactical advice right before the start. I then manage to miss my pedal 3 times. Awesome 1st impression. Anyways we get to the hill and its friggin steep and long. Much suffering was had. The pack broke up into like 15ish people and lots of stragglers. Nothing else happens on lap 1. On lap 2 going up the hill there is more suffering. Much more. Now the pack is like 10 guys. Nothing happens until the finish. I'm sitting 4th wheel like 300 yards out when some guy jumps. I try to swing over to him, while the guy in front of me swung to grab a wheel on the opposite side. I ate cement. Much road rash, but no tears. lol. I got up and managed to hold onto my 10th place. Yippee!
    So I managed to destroy my bibs, jersey, waterbottle cage, and dignity.

    I'm still planning to be at WoW assuming the 4/5 field isn't filled and I can actually move tomorrow.

    It got better.

    Actually, the second doctor's opinion was that it was only sprained, which its current status would seem to agree with. I can't blame it on the wrist.

    I saw a little of the women's and 4/5s. Who is the woman (a junior racer) who won the women's race? She was leading wire to wire. Someone standing nearby said she sometimes would race with the men.

    Denzer RR was hard. Sorry for pushing the pace with a few other guys, especially up the climb. I wound up winning it

    I crashed out of the WoW race after some jackass took himself out in front of me.

    Oh ... so YOU'RE the one! I heard stories about you on the side lines.

    More importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on the WIN!

    Frunkin was looking GOOD today in the 4's:










    But then all of a sudden ... he's sitting in the road!!



    One rider stayed down for quite a while too ...




    ... but eventually walked away.

    At this time, the race was stopped and Frunkin pleaded his case to the officials:



    Tough racer that he is, he gets back in the race and finishes in the pack!





    I can't show you the 'win' yet ... I'm going to try an sell that pic! (It's GOOOOOOD)

    Later on, in the 3's race, Recursive is tearing up the course! (in his new skin suit)




    Not only that, but he cashes in on a prime!

    $$$ KA-CHING!!! $$$




    On top of that $$, he may have placed as well:





    (not sure how deep the places were)

    So, congratulations to Frunkin and Recursive for their good performances today

    (and JPradun, I'll see what I can find of you as well )

    (Next ... quick report on the 2's )

    The 2's race had 100+ riders, and the pace was hot right from the gun.



    The field was strong including a whole squad from Grand Performance in Minneapolis, and someone from
    Texas Roadhouse.




    ... but I'll show more of that later. It's been a long but SUPER weekend, gotta take a break.

    Congrats to all who did so well.

    Race report: I stepped in poop. Seriously.
    Also, I won a prime, as pictured above. I got 7th.

    jdub...did you get some pics of the women's open or the master 123 race? i think i saw during my race, but my tunnel vision was in full effect...

    did anyone else find it hard to pass on that course? seemed like the gutter on the back stretch or up the hill was about it....

    A team mate of mine said he was never able to move up much during the entire race. He finished mid pack. I'm not sure what my secret was, but I didn't find it too difficult to move up. I started in the very back, but worked to the front within a couple of laps. The pack would sometimes narrow out of corners, at which time I could usually pick up 10 places or so.

    you probably got more cajones than me. at the start i felt pretty crappy then the last 20 min i was feeling pretty snappy but everytime i would pull out to move forward i'd get pinched in the turn and lose about half the positions i gained. i probably could have just stuffed myself in line if i wanted to get yelled at, but since no one knows me, i figured i wouldn't be "that" guy....yet.
