    This does happen. I run 25s on my rain bike because they are comfy, but clearance under the brake bridge is minimal. A few weeks ago I got a piece of gravel stuck between the rear brake bridge and...

    The rep contacted me, he was very friendly about it, and told me to contact him directly when I get the last point so he can expedite it.

    I'm not going to push it any further, it's just one...

    Yeah, the rules are the rules, that's fine. If they let people slide with N-1 points, they might as well make the rule N-1, and so on.


    What's annoying is the situation with this one race: I...

    I submitted my cat 3 upgrade, but it turns out that one race last summer reported incorrect results to USAC. Way too long ago to get fixed now. Leaving me exactly one point short of the upgrade.

    I'm in the middle of a reset, 1.5 weeks off the bike, mostly life schedule related, but I had targeted the spring races and now it's time for a break.

    Turns out I could fit in the Saturday AM...

    The course change was significant, there was a lot more climbing this year. That whole section of endless dirt kickers from mile 45 to 50 was new. Pre-riding the course I matched last year's race...

    Random thought: is there a way to see a racer's USAC ranking points directly? The only way I know to do this is to look at the overall ranking list, like so:...

    This may be true, but the basic point is the same, which is that Quarq and Stages are spending a lot of company resources on support that I wish they would spend instead on developing a product that...

    What the heck, one more Battenkill photo. Me on the right, my buddy Jim in the stem-staring zone on the left. Top of Juniper Swamp, field exploding behind.

    I feel like we are a year away from the holy grail of an accurate, reliable, convenient power meter for $700. But I felt that way last year, and the year before...

    In that vid it looks to me like Myerson (2nd wheel) jukes right and then goes left. The guy behind him committed left and suddenly had Myerson coming in from the right. I can see why that would...

    Pie report: it was a dark chocolate, flourless pie with graham ******* crust. Our neighbor smokes bacon so we always have pounds of it on hand. She mixed bacon (good sized chunks, cooked but not...

    Arty Battenkill photo. Me on the left, I happened to be passing a teammate who had fallen off the earlier 50+ field. He is a cat 2 CX guy and I see he brought his cross bike to the game.

    dz_nuzz, I'm sorry you had such a bad day. I know a lot of strong guys had their race end at mile 12.

    Obviously we had different experiences, but I loved the conditions. Any race that rewards...

    Battenkill cat 4B. 7th of 116.


    Truly epic conditions, this race lived up to its reputation this year. The dirt was mostly mud, the steeps were littered with bodies like Antietam, and it even...

    We had a squirrel drop down our chimney into the (cold) wood stove last fall. I locked the cats away, opened every door and window, put packing blankets up to try to guide its path towards the open...

    I asked because I noticed Battenkill pre-reg was down 20% from last year (2300 vs 2900). Probably multiple factors, including a price increase in that case.

    There may be declining participation...

    Note that exp(-1/42) is pretty close to 41/42, and exp(-1/7) is pretty close to 6/7. You can reasonably just calculate today's ATL as 6/7*yesterday's ATL + 1/7*today's TSS, and CTL as...
