I would say this is a perfect thread for random talking, but theres not enough people on here...:(
Checking in here as well!
ouch sstang, ur treating me this way after all ive done for you?
Come be my domestique Friday and we'll see.. I'm definitely going otb. I just don't want to be to sketchy in the middle of the pack, but I don't want to be at the back and sides and i don't really see me being at the front. I'll be racing the first of the season, my first 'real' race, in the same one as rbart! :)
+1 to get down on the get down'
Random talking? That's my specialty. So, how is everybody enjoying this wonderfully cold spring?
It's 15 degrees Celcius and sunny up in soviet canuckistan.
I used to a Junior, so can I post here?
Where do you come from?
Used to hang in the 41. Glad to see we juniors have the opportunity to have a spot.
U23 means before 1923, right ?
U23, albeit for the next 8months. Stick around old heads, need ya. :)
Experience is valuable.
Since I'm guessing a number of you are sstill in high school, a word of advice: DO COLLEGIATE CYCLING. it is the most fun you'll ever have on a race team. If you're a newer rider it's a great way to ppick the brains of kids who are 1s and 2s with a lot of experience, and if you are the experienced one its a great way to teach new kids about cycling. And the best part is, normally the club covers some/most of yyour expenses so racing becomes way more affordable. And don't be one of those kids who ccomes into sschool with a bike, buys $400 in school kit, joins a frat, and never touches their bike again.
I don't think there's any of that in ontario :( I'll have to do more research now but I don't think there is. I like the U.S better for cycling though, mostly because of the categories though. I just did my first junior race on Friday and got dropped 20km in. I feel as if I'd do better starting in cat 5 and racing people according to my skill level. But at the end of the day, go Canada go!! :thumb:
the proper way is to show up to school, spend $400 on a kit, join a frat, and do all your rides hungover.
You could always drink away the hangover..
