    Indeed.

    Assuming they don't make us Cat 4/5 fools start at an ungodly hour, I should be there.

    Looks like a nice course. But no flyer available with only one week of racing away? WTF?

    It's pretty laid back from what I hear. It's technically a practice crit series too I believe.

    I might be there. Probably not though, since I don't have a car and I will be home for spring break.

    This is my home turf. I don't have a bike currently capable of racing however.
    I didn't know we would have a race this early!
    Anyone wanna lend me?
    I was in Phoenix last week and put in my base miles for one week. Totally ready... ?

    56-58 ideally, not picky though.
    At least you're cat'd far away so I don't have to worry about a crash! = )

    Beautiful weather, the course had a few bumps here and there, but all in all a good test for the legs. They had cat4 and cat5 start in one group, which was good, so there were enough wheels to suck on.
    Met Psi, MJH2, John W., recursive and Joel who just started racing a few weeks ago and took the win in cat5. I'm not worthy.
    Was not too fast of a race so it was easy to hang on until the sprint where I was in the back of the sprinting pack
    I took 3rd in the cat5 nonetheless, so I'm satisfied.

    Lots of fun. Saw a lot of BF guys. Thanks to everyone for enduring my unending mopiness.

    Big congrats to Joel who won his first race. MJH2 buried himself in a leadout for him and he had a substantial gap on the field he sat up way before the line. He won't be a 5 for long. He won't be a 4 for long. It's real fun to watch him race.

    Early pix from the Cat 1/2 race are up on Peloton-Pix. Taking a short break, then grind out the rest.

    Good times.

    I knew the smartwool sox would look sexy! Thanks for the picture. Make sure to post in here when the 4/5's are up. I know you got a few. And, besides myself, I know a certain Cat 5 who'd probably love a picture or two.

    Sounds like a good time. To be clear, was it MJH2 or Joel who sat up way before the line?

    MJH2, I assume you raced as a Cat4, how did it go?

    Finally, this race was described as a "practice race". Is it? How was the competition, organization, etc. I'm considering making the trip next week.

    It's the real deal. Just don't expect fabulous cash and prizes if you win.

    It was Joel who sat up. I gassed it in the first turn. Joel stayed on my wheel down the back straight and we got a decent little gap on the field. In trying to get him to the last turn in position to win, I had a mishap and dnf'd. Joel easily took the field sprint for 4th overall, and 1st in CAT5. Not bad for a guy who started seriously riding his bike about 45 days ago.

    I raced Cat 4.

    Our race was mild. There were a couple of half-hearted break attempts, with one (2 man) and one (solo) getting away about 10 minutes from the end. Nobody wanted to chase. If you've been even thinking about going, I'd suggest it. The course is super wide with open turns and no substantial flaws in the surface.
