Generally an official will let you know when you're in violation of the centerline rule and also let you know if you get a warning, a relegation, or DQ'd. It isn't always possible or safe for the...

This is the way it's done around WA State. In fact, the "processing" is done right here in Spokane. If you wanted to save some postage and get your number faster, you could probably drive up here to...

I think this means that there are now two ways that you can permit a race with USAC; 1) by being a licensed race director, or 2) by being registered as a club/team. As you know every team is...

One would hope that the difference between Cat 5 race Starts and Cat 5 race Finsishes wouldn't be too great. One big implication here is in crits where they pull dropped or lapped riders. I know that...

Wish we had that problem. How many total racers show up to an average one-day road race down there?

Yeah, of course people can always do more than one race as long as they're eligible and if the the scheduling allows for it. What I meant was that we will no longer combine the Masters field with the...

Maybe it wont be a hard sell. We're looking into it and I think we might go for it. The tough part is that this is a departure from the way the rest of the state classifies Masters. On the other...

Another option that I've thought about is racing all of the open Master's fields together (but still score them separately). So, Masters 40+, 50+, 60+ racing together, but scored separately. This...

Wow, I'm sorry I offended so many Masters. We go through the same heated discussions on the WA State list serve with the same predictable results. I know, no Master likes to be called a sandbagger,...

I agree with this suggestion, and in fact that's what we're doing. Since the majority of those in our 40/50+ Master fields are Cat 4 or Cat 5, they are racing with the Cat 4/5's. We do have 40/50+...

Messed up because the Masters can't hang with the 1-2's? Maybe so, but we work with the population that we have. We're seeing more and more 40+and 50+ racers entering the sport for the first time...

Yes some 35-45 year old's also happen to be pro 1-2's, and yeah that group is as fast as anyone. So why don't they just race their elite category instead of sandbagging with the Masters? The fact is...

Debusama,
Yeah, I know what you're saying. In areas with smaller fields, often the Masters are grouped with the new riders. The reason is that it's more important to group riders of similar ability...

Yes, in USA Cycling terminology Elite = not a Master or a Junior. Depending on where you race the Masters cut-off starts between age 30-40. To confuse new racers even more, the term Elite is also...

I would definitely race with the Master 50+ group as opposed to with "Elite" cat 4 or 5's. Masters racing has the reputation of being safer, presumably because older riders are more experienced and...

210 lbs at the moment. That's the same as when I finished undergrad 13 years ago, and about 30 lbs less than when I finished grad school 9 years ago. I'd like to get down to my racing weight of 190...

This looks a lot like our finishes. The line of cones is a nice touch, but would take a long time to set up for what they are. I know what you're saying about banners restricting with width. Another...

I guess it's to obvious to ask why you don't want another Open Pro? The DT Swiss 465 is a very similarly speced rim and has an ERD of 599mm. If your spokes were slightly short, the 465 might work, I...
