And thank you for not using those cookie frame things, Ex.
His understanding of this stuff is what has enabled Racer-Ex to so successfully coach a wide variety of athletes.
"If you're riding less than 18 MPH up a 2% grade please tell people Coggan is coaching you."
Colnago, have you raced Masters in the States? How does it compare to Veterans overseas? Incidentally, the USCF used to call Masters Veterans over here.
Colnago, has anyone told you welcome aboard? Well, welcome aboard!!

If there's anything else you'd like to know about me just ask. I'm an open book. Boring, but open.
I left South Africa in 1996, and raced Veterans there from 35 years old onward, with the Veterans Cycling Association. Very different to here, a lot of the races were organized only for veterans, including four day stage tours, with a stage in the morning, another in the afternoon. A, B, C, D groups. Generally the A group were at Cat1 level compared to here. They were very well organised, catering specifically for vets. Upgrading group was at own request, downgrading had to be approved.
In Italy, in 1999, I raced with a local club in the Veneto region, close to Monte Grappa. Not too far from the Dolomites. They had different clubs competing in the same race, you had to be a club member. There were no categories. By approval, they would occasionally allow visitors from outside to enter the race.
