Welcome to the club of "we don't give a rat's ass about anything but how you ride", gobbeasley.
bbeasley, you did it and you had fun! Focus on the fun and the rest will come along.
Way to gut it out.
Nice going, beasley, in your first race. Congrats. How did the TT go?
That sums it up, it's very cool.Quote:

Pics of the wreck are starting to show up on the NOLA cycling websites. This one came from a guys GoPro, at this point I'm already through. Again, beginners luck!
Congrats on the racing.
Welcome to racing. Nice job staying up during the crash!
That's just too scary to even look at. The Force was on your side, thank heavens!
Quite the crash.
Nice work, well done, and welcome to the club........... racer. :thumb:
Racing was everything I wanted it to be and more. It's been very motivating.
Since the race I've lost 11 lbs and am now sub clyde. 6 more and I'll be overweight instead of obese. This weight is for the first time in ~2.5 decades. I've picked up a Garmin 800, they're giving them away right now, so I can start loading workouts and using average heart rate.
My first goal is to be able to hang with the pack for most of the race. To do that, I realize I've got to ditch the excess weight and keep training. I'm not going to race again until I'm sub 180 (on my way to 155). This will be sooner rather than later.... totally focused.
Did I mention I'm a bike racer? Yeah, I said that :)
Congrats!, racer. Now HTFU and get in more races.
Bbeasley, don't let a goal weight determine whether you race or not. Racing IS training, and believe me if we waited to race at our "race weight" , some of us might never race. ;)
What am I thinking? Posting on the racing forum about not racing, man that's dense.
Okay, pass the crack pipe, I'm in.... June 8th it is :) I'm not too fat..... I'm just spotting the competition 40 pounds to make it fair.
