    You had to be soft-pedaling in that draft.

    Hey, is that Scott Baker in 3rd position. Scott is a very strong TT guy and cool friend.

    Hi, some photos from the August 20th, El Dorado Park Twilight Training Series. All photos by Allan Crawford.

    Masters 35+, 1st lap, I'm on the far right of the pack -- pink shoulders, red helmet -- and I'm about to jump across to these two guys. I caught them but then the pack came up a short time later.


    Watching the front of the pack. Note how many Velo Allegro (dark blue with white and yellow trim) and Velocity (dark blue with white and orange trim) jerseys there are in the photo.


    Me in the break.


    Might as well throw in a photo of Big M leading the Pro/1/2/3 pack.
    Thanks.

    MEA and I attended the Masters Road Nationals in Bend, OR this week. MEA competed in the TT and was 3rd of 16. There was 5 seconds separating the top three competitors over the 20K course out and back course with ~400 feet of climbing at 3000 feet of above sea level. MEA had a bad luck at the turnaround where there were two other slower women negotiating the turn around as she arrived and had to slow for them. Not exactly the race of truth but this is racing.



    Here are some pics taken by yours truly.

    The drive to Bend is 520 miles and we went past Mount Shasta on the way.



    Bend is at 4000 feet of elevation and we went for a ride when we arrived. It is very a very nice area with lots of bicycle infrastructure. However, we did not see a lot of cyclists compared to the Bay Area which may have been due to the time of day we were out. The weather was hot 96 degrees and windy on our ride.



    We rode the TT course that was about 45 minutes from Bend in Prineville. The course is very nice and the temperature in the morning was in the low 70s and wind light.







    Here is the start and finish line.



    MEA in the start house.



    Technical inspection was right before you got into line. We took her bike to pre-reg and USA cycling measured it the day before the race. Some racers showed up to race with with out of spec bikes race day and were scrambling.



    It was a fun trip and we hooked up with friends who were at the event. MEA had perfect weather race day but the next day was terrible for the younger men and women for the road race where there was golf ball size hail.

    That's great Hermes. Congrats to MEA. Just 5 seconds from the win! She beat our local rider by over a minute. Jane is very strong, that shows how good MEA really is.

    MEA had a great time, just a handful of seconds off of the top rung. As you said, "racing". Loved the start house - big time stuff, there! Hermes, you take great pictures!

    Cleave, nice to see the Park and nice to see you hammering along! Big M leading the pros? Yeah, I'd expect that! I'd LOVE to do one of those races down there. Maybe next year!

    Some guy came to the velodrome tonight and set up to take pictures for a story he is doing. He said that he's a professional and his name is Edward Campbell. They asked me to pose and to give some attitude. Not sure where this will end up. I didn't think about hiding the fluid bloated elbow that was the result of my crash two weeks ago.
