Looking for Training Partner - Broomfield, CO

Hey all,

I feel like I'm posting a bad personnel ad for a dating service, but unfortunately most of the cyclists I know turn training rides in races:

I'm looking for a training partner to work through all the lonely base building this fall, specifically on the weekends. The reason I'm not seeking out the local group rides is because I am looking for my base building to be disciplined endurance work, not the Tuesday Night Worlds.

For reference:
- FTP is currently 232, so that puts my endurance rides between 130-180.
- I'm a 22 year old, post college, Cat 4 with strong motivation to upgrade
- I ride for Louisville Cyclery
- I live next to the Broomfield Event Center

Either e-mail, hammonjj@colorado.edu, or reply to this post if your interested in going for a ride!

Can you mention what that watt range is in MPH?

RMCC rides do not turn into the Tuesday night worlds. I rode the Sunday ride out of Westminster yesterday and finished in the second group and I averaged 130 watts with a NP of 176.

Valygirl that translates to 17.5 MPH on yesterdays RMCC course with yesterdays winds.


Oh and I'd train with you but starting this weekend I'll be skiing all day every SAT and SUN until mid april. No more weekend rides for about 5 1/2 months.

I've never heard of RMCC, do they have a website?
