It sucks when you do an 80mi ride and your Garmin thinks you're off course (trying new route) and fails to record any data other than time (no speed, cadence, power, or HR) for the first 25mi or so.

First time racing all the way from February to the end of August. Overall, it was pretty mediocre.

I'm a Cat 3 who trains like a pretty lazy 3, and so it hurts when I race against the 1s and 2s,...

Agreed. There may be reasons other than "I want to take out the guy behind me who told me he's there" that the front rider has to move laterally suddenly.

I am not a large person, although I'm far from the smallest in the women's fields. I spent my first year as a 3 getting moved off of wheels by the 1s and 2s and feeling like a pansy. This year, I've...

I'm now just about in good criterium shape...and it's now road racing season in MABRA. Sigh.

I'm waiting to try the Defeet UnD-Ice....though I'm skeptical. IMO, UnderArmour "heat gear" compression isn't as breathable as some other baselayer materials. I've stopped wearing it.

If your threshold is pretty much where it's going to stay, then I guess the lesson is 1) not to miss the break, 2) don't bridge up solo; catch a ride. Doing workouts at/near your FTP (such as the...

It definitely sounds too big. I only wear men's (XS) (fits me better, the chamois is a non-issue), and if I were to have to buy women's, I'd probably go up a size (S). I can't see wearing a larger...

My bridging sucks this year compared to normal, but if I do that type of effort (whether I make it or fall back to the pack), I can recover very quickly and can quickly start contributing to the...

Hit a new PR for sprint speed on Sunday. This particular sprint spot has a decent downhill approach to work some leadout tactics without many people, but it flattens out over some bumpy pavement for...
