    A 5k is 20 minutes of pain, costs too much, isn't anywhere near as fun, yet tons of people do them, most of whom aren't even trying to win. The bike race now sounds like an amazing deal!

    Yeah, I'd say definitely wait. I had a cold in January, and even after I felt better, power was down 10-15% for a good week.

    That's definitely a small ring hill! I'd approach in a slightly high gear for the 50, shift to 34 and it was perfect to start the hill for a few pedal strokes, then shift down a few more.

    And sat 3rd wheel for the pack sprint and led out another teammate for that. He didn't win it but was in the mix, 2nd or 3rd. No results for me (maybe 9th or so), yet a memorable race.

    Cat's Hill E3. Closest race to home the whole year! Fun course too, but I'll probably run out of gas at the top of the final climb like last year.
