hey all. just found this forum...looks like a wealth of experience and knowledge, which is exactly what i need.
I'm a roadie from Victoria BC. I've been riding for about a year now...mainly alone...though i did some 'drop in' crit racing on the mainland (mission raceway), i'm otherwise green in terms of racing...I would like to get more involved in that aspect. as fun as wheel sucking* cars is, i think i'd be better off getting my speed thrills in a controlled environment. :-)
my main topic of interest is training techniques...how do i become faster? I know 'ride more with faster people' is a popular answer...there has to be more of a science to it than that! I have a new HRM which I would like to incorporate into my riding.
*my new favorite term thanks to this site.
