    Bump drills and riding on the drops. This wouldn't have happened.

    Pro-1-2 riders can get away with riding on the hoods. The rest of you, I'm going to yell at.

    8 to 12 inches of snow predicted for Friday's TT in Big Bear. Bummer! I don't look forward to driving all the way up there just to have it cancelled.

    Worse than that, I've done all my research...

    My arms are tired today from all the twisty turns yesterday. I was following C-3 (CHP) down it as fast as we both could go.
    Without a doubt, it's the most technical road I've ever been on.

    The report on Talansky was that he had bad allergies. Riding through grasslands and a variety of agricultural settings probably didn't help.

    Today's route was oddly very scenic despite being...

    I made that same joke while announcing at a race once in Denver. Got completely reamed by two spectators who were public school teachers.
    I still use the joke. Just not in Denver.

    The danger is over-hyped. Crits are, in fact, exciting and exhilarating. They force you to use more skills than just hammering and climbing. They wear you down mentally as much as physically.

    This sums it up.

    I'm sure the commissaires spent time discussing it after the race. They may even have fined him 50 Euros.

    I've sat in on those juries that take place immediately after the...

    I think that you can remove a lot of the luck with working on the right skills. As Lee Trevino used to say: "the more I practice, the luckier I get"

    Classic mistake: scalloping the turn.

    Watch (beginning @ 8:05) as the riders make several micro-turns or adjustments as they begin the turn. (you have to look beyond the camera-shake) This...

    Tip: When a crash occurs ahead of you (or behind you for that matter), don't look at it. Look for an escape or something soft.

    Newer racers tend to look at the crash and grab the brakes.

    No, I never said there were fewer crashes in a P12. I think there, but what I said was that their crashes usually involve one or two riders. Versus a Cat 4 crash that will generally involve many.

    Crash avoidance instead of crash fear.

    The other crash thread became stale and off topic, so I thought I'd kickstart a different conversation.

    Everyone talks about crashing, but few ever talk about crash avoidance skills. If they do,...
