    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!

    Used to hang in the 41. Glad to see we juniors have the opportunity to have a spot.

    Right, how much did you have to twirl your mustache back in 1923?

    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!!

    the proper way is to show up to school, spend $400 on a kit, join a frat, and do all your rides hungover.

    Joining a frat is too much effort, you leech off their parties and do the rides hung over.
