    It's entirely rubbish for her to claim that someone else put that bike in the pit area without her knowing.
    This wasn't a small amateur team at a local race. This was a very experienced national...

    I don't know if 'mutually exclusive' is the right term, but I know of no coaches who teach tactics or techniques. And I don't know of any who teach drills.

    I know of a lot of coaches who have...

    But which kind of "coach"? The guy who tells you how to improve your power numbers? Or the guy who tells you how to race?

    My 2013 Madone fought me in every turn. Hated it. Sold it.

    My 2014 Litespeed corners as if it pre-rode the course. Silk.

    So yes, bikes can be very different.

    Keep a soft grip on the bars....

    I don't know what sort of PM can come from actually polishing them. An occasional inspection is helpful, but over-cleaning a bike is, IMO, a waste of time. Having watched enough mechanics wash a bike...

    An old USAF trick is to wear nylons under medium socks. Learned that at northern tier bases.

    I wear thin socks under medium woolies. Either way, you have to give your foot room to move.

    They just put up with any eccentricities a frame or equipment might have. It's part of being a pro.
    But there are plenty of stories of riders/teams who have had to paint over good equipment to look...

    Yeah, it wasn't getting enough traffic, so we killed it.

    Plenty of room for more racers at any age, really.
    But you should know that even at the ripe old age of 46 things are very competitive. You'll be racing against people who've been doing it for...

    I yell at riders who play games with traffic and do stupid things. Mostly, it's to correct a dangerous situation before it turns ugly.

    Just to get the thread back on track and give people more...

    55/Rad gets "Very nice man"
    I get "Small world, cycling"

    I see how it is.

    All right. You're in.

    But when you turn 45 and have a job with a 6-figure salary, I'll insist you pay your own way.

    If I'm alive then.

    That's a pretty elaborate membership agreement. I had to snicker at the "tradition" that started in 2009. Not knocking it; our Club started in 1888.

    Does that club change its kit design every year...

    15-year old Gentry Jefferson caught his glasses. Is that Joe Jefferson's kid?
    The woman who caught the helmet could be described as petite. She won the scrum.

    I don't know who caught the gloves.
