    Me too.. perhaps for different reasons than yours. They put the 45+ with the 35+ guys today. The heavy hitters in the 35+ are a significant subset of the 123 field around here. It was fast... same speed as the 123 that followed, albeit shorter. I was reminded of this...

    Nice Herbie.

    I like those older guy races, though the 35+ would likely be brutal. I'm quite happy rolling the 55+, but today, it was the 35+4. Scary, scary, scary. I forgot to turn on my Garmin, but not the camera, and reliving it was even worse.

    There was a 35 3/4 race in the morning I should have probably done, but I wanted to save my matches to have any chance of helping a team mate who is contesting the local points thing for 45+. As it was, I was pretty much useless... pulling out into the breeze to do anything felt like being hit by a train... single file 45 minute express train.

    Haven't played since my glorious days of yesteryear, a long time ago, but we'll see what I still got.

    Did I mentioned I'm pumped?

    Understand that. Still, it's so much smoother. Sprinting out of almost every corner is starting to make me pretty strong, anyway. 55+ State Race is next Sunday. I'm much more excited about that than the two I'm doing tomorrow.

    Bicycle racing is for idiots. I know, I did it on and off for 20 years.

    The next Addiction will feature a titillating thread title. (Say that 5 times fast.)

    Expect an unusual number of people coming by asking "What's this thread about"?

    Or pervs, we'll probably attract more pervs . . . . I mean more than the ones we got already.

    The end is very near.

    Pack your gear, prepare to move out.

    Leave your carbon bikes behind, they're too explosive.
