    In race? In the kindest way possible, I recommend: 1. Shut your yap 2. If you're so much better, ride better and show your confidence and skill by remaining calm and staying smooth.

    Gosh are you serious. It's cyclocross, for crying out loud. The OP isn't going to be racing alongside anyone for more than a minute or so, and he'll be mixed in with all the other n00bs in Cat 5....

    Welcome back! Not surprised to see you pull out at Cedar Hill. I did that the first year and honestly it was one of the sketchiest races I've ever done. Although it was the 3/4 that freaked me out,...

    Oh believe me, I have a whole rant on the "hold your line" B.S. yelling that I can launch into whenever you want. It was among many things that me and my pal mattio (@queerpunk around the BF-osphere)...

    I think this issue has been discussed to death here a few different times, but it's really not about crits in particular or course design or some hard and fast rules handed down from on high. It's...

    Thanks. Like I said, I think a more definitive answer will probably require a re-test. The nature of the course meant a lot of alternating between well below and well above FTP, so NP might read a...

    We'll see. I haven't formally tested in a while, should do one. Maybe late in the week. I will be at Purgatory. Excited about it, since I should be fresher and faster. Might even have some light...

    Ken Harrod RR, Cat 3. Entered this race with a TSB of -28. Result: "LOL."

    You need to not make excuses and just race what you have. Worry about replacing it IF you break it.

    It's about the capsule you're in. Mountain biking was HUGE in the early-mid 90's, then crashed hard. It may or may not be coming back among road racers who are looking for new competitive spheres...

    If you want to continue the fun, head north on Bedford St. once you reach Lincoln center. That was a serious "WTF!?" moment the first time I found that.

    I didn't feel like doing another Z2 ride last night, so I borrowed a teammate's MTB and rode over to do the local short track XC series, about 9 miles from my house. Entered the 2/3 race ('B'), won...
