    I thought it was football or something like that. The non-sport trophies made it hard to guess.

    Well then, Happy Birthday!

    Heh. Well of all the people the Verge guys would know that I'm holding a Series. But the locale is very different and someone in Middletown NY realistically would be doing JC and not a Hartford area...

    I think day of is better for the earlier ones. I tried to make it so that the cost to the racer is about the same. Ultimately if people pre-reg and I have to cancel the first race it'll be a pain.

    My 2 hour ride was 1100kJ and I was pushing hard, virtually race pace. 158w so for me that's about the average power for an easier race. It's only 30w short of a hard race.

    Congrats on doing your first race.

    That map looks like a nightmare for a first time racer that wasn't really sure of what to expect. The turns with the long straights means that there will be...

    First ride in a few days because sick. Somehow I zeroed out my SRM between the basement and upstairs.

    If I don't go to Vegas or SoCal then I have maybe 5-10 drinks a year. In SoCal or in Vegas (if...

    There was a race where I dropped out after one 11 mile lap (race was 55 miles) - I did it for 3-4 years and every year I got shelled on the hill to the finish (Jiminy Peak RR). I was probably home...

    +1

    With low spoke count wheels the rims are much stronger as they rely less on the spokes for strength. I can sit on an unlaced tall profile carbon rim without feeling much flex at all but if I...

    Personally I'm not good at 50 mph on a descent in a field. On a straight road. On a curvy road with lots of turns it's all good because it's not just a gravity thing, there's some skill that comes...

    On the flip side of the family thing Junior is just incredible. He'll be 3 shortly, in a couple weeks. I am pretty sure he's about average in development so for any of you parents it's no big deal....

    I live 10 min from MA, no longer in the Fancy CT area. Part of the reason for moving the Series north was so I could drive down the morning of the event, not the day before.
