I like how you could see the air pressure in the tires change as you cornered, and the bar tape plug status was something new as well.

Oops, you missed the wheel bearing temperature. :)

My wife took this cell phone video at last Saturdays IL State Masters Track Champs. In addition to two straights into the wind, I bungled the start. I raced at Northbrook in part to get acquainted with a 387 meter track that is more like the track at Redmond WA where Nats will be held. Considering that my wife said that she would never take another picture of me after the "TT position image fiasco" she did pretty well. :D

Flying, there, AJ! Looking really good. :)

Hermes 07-09-14 08:59 PM

Nice A"Jet. I like the wheels and set up and I bet that your wife bargained hard for a quid pro quo for that video.

The video was a total surprise! Payback will be rendered when I least expect it.:lol:

Hi, Lothar C posted videos from both races that I did this past Sunday in Carson, CA. Here is the 50+/55+ race (race together, scored separately):


I finally make an appearance (no. 993) at 29:37. Before that, you see my teammate, Greg P, quite a bit. You also see Racer Ex's teammates attacking and chasing. Big M, Frances, The Roof Guy, and another guy who I don't know.

I didn't watch all of the 45+ race video:


However, skipping through it, I spotted myself (no. 196) at 34:57. Again, you see my teammate and Racer Ex's teammates quite a bit. BTW, there were 10(?) guys off the front and the field was sprinting for no prizes and no SoCal Cup points.

Race factoid: 50+/55+ race was slower than the 45+ race (26.2 vs 26.6 MPH) yet my NP was lower in the 45+ race (238W vs 217W). After the 50+/55+ race, I was telling my teammates that I felt like I was wasting a lot of energy because the back of the field was kind of sketchy and my attempts to get to the front, before my appearance in the video, were not effective. The 45+ race was much smoother and easier for me.

Our 45+ races are my absolute fav's. I can't do as much tactically, but the speed is just damned fun. One of my most enjoyable moments this past season was leading out our team captain for the pack sprint win (few guys off the front). No place, no points, but it was great practice. It wasn't planned, I just recognized the opportunity and executed. By the time he launched, my entire bike and I were shaking from the effort as I blew up. Loved it.

Well, it's that time of year that I get to share my "stupid sport" with the rest of you more conventional racers......well, except for sara, and formerly, Ajet.

This was shot by Chris Haskell at last weekends race. I think he does a super job as a videographer, and he truly loves the sport.

Here is the 4/5 race. Enjoy...............or not. :rolleyes:

I wish that I could still mix it up on the cross courses. Way too much suffering and fun. Five minutes into a race I would ask myself "why are you doing this again?". Ten minutes after the race I was plotting how to get better for the next time.

Allegheny Jet 10-12-14 05:08 PM

Went to the cross race today to cheer on my brother in law, teammates and riding buddies. I must admit that I'm surprising good at heckling.

shovelhd 10-12-14 06:14 PM

I'm not surprised.

It's a whole different level of masochism for sure. Maybe not higher or lower then other disciplines, but definitely different. And yeah. I came into the season under trained, over weight, and pretty much unmotivated. After Sunday's race, I talked to a coach about starting a program again.

Ha, instead of getting a coach, maybe I should just take some heckling lessons........ probably be more cost effective. Hell, more effective period.

Become an official. You get to yell at them and they have to listen :)

Do I get a badge? I really, really want a badge. :D




I'd almost challenge you to race cross, and I'd get my blue shirt, but I'm kind of a chicken..........a lazy chicken.

shovelhd 10-13-14 07:52 PM

You're on.

Oh, oh. I went and stepped in it, didn't I. :p

O.k. How do we run this?

shovelhd 10-13-14 08:52 PM

Well, it would have to do with you getting your official's license and me entering a cross race that you have been assigned to. :)

Damn, I was hoping for something so complicated, that I could claim OBE*, and meekly back out. :rolleyes:

Here is my pledge: I will obtain my level C officials license, and help in at least one race by NLT June. I could well progress from there, but no promises.

Volley......................

What area of the country are you located in?

nacler22 10-14-14 07:19 AM

Idaho, so I wouldn't get to officiate your race. Hey, there's my out.........I love logistics. (jk) :thumb:

Racer Ex 10-14-14 03:10 PM

Probably posted this before, but some footage from the local trails. The last three minutes bombing through the desert is pretty sweet.

#t=199

Hermes 10-14-14 07:32 PM

The whole thing looked pretty sweet.

nacler22 10-14-14 07:51 PM

Very nice. Always love me some sweet, sweet singletrack. If Santa brings me a POV camera , I'll be posting some of my local trails.

carpediemracing 10-20-14 05:45 PM

I thought I posted this here but I didn't. M45 race, "only" one major star (ex-pro Frank McCormack), but I had realistically one of my best days of the year. The numbers are posted in the YouTube description but 167w avg (a little low for me), 160bpm (high for me), 89rpm (about average). Smaller field but not tiny. Field was sprinting for CT's bronze medal.
