Hi from Boulder Colorado

Hi All
I ran into this forum and thought it would be interesting to see what’s going on out there in the real world. I’m getting back into racing after a 20 year layoff. I am currently training 4-6 days a week, between 30 mins. and 3:30 hrs. It’s sure not as easy as the last time! Any words of wisdom from folks who have come back from a long layoff is always appreciated.
Also, news and views of the riding experience here in the “Republic of Boulder”, from just a guy in the pack.

You're a better person than me cause after 20 years I'd throw in the towel.

Welcome and good luck with the racing.

Welcome from Parker, Colorado. We have a guy in Denver and one in Colorado Springs, to name just a few.

We just got a WHOLE lot of heavy hail. The ground is all white, and I am not sure if the roof got damaged or not.
