    2013 UCI track masters world championships

    I see they have published the schedule for the masters world champs in Manchester, 6-12 October. Any of you track stars going to come over and compete? One of our local guys will be riding in the 60-64 age group and I'm thinking of coming along to watch.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    I know a couple guys going over. I would love to go... watch or participate. But I don't think I can swing it.

    Go for it. The way your results are going, you'd be a contender...

    Maybe. Right now I'm hoping my back is good enough to race this weekend.

    It would be nice to do Worlds. My wife and I begin a 12 day cruise leaving Barcelona on Oct 28. Don't think doing both would be a good idea to discuss.

    It's all a matter of how it's presented, AJ. How about "why don't we treat ourselves to an extra three weeks in Europe before our cruise, darling?"

    I think it's six at the moment. Nothing very exotic.

    I hope to go (55-59) but I'll wait to decide until after the European Champs next week.

    Out. Season started in February and went through till now without a real break. Been very inconsistent and it's hard to justify the expense and time without being in a good place. Oh, and the wife is getting knee surgery on the 14th.

    Thinking I'll sit out next year and go in to 2015 as a newly minted 55+ guy.

    Works for me. I'll be a 60+ guy starting next year. But I know some folks who'd rather see you burn yourself out next year, THEN cat up.
