    Quite a bit more than that from what I've seen. You guys usually have a pretty robust presence in the 4s. You guys, Squadra, and Suffolk/SunPower/Luxuvue/AltoVelo usually fill most of the fields

    Good racing. Not sure what was going on in the 3/4 groups yesterday, but there seemed to be a total unwillingness for cooperation in all the fields. Wonder if people are too reluctant to take the...

    He's fine, some scrapes and such. Not sure what happened in the crash, but seat stays and chain stays are crushed, the rear derailleur ripped off, and the front wheel's spokes are shredded.

    No worries, i'll make sure to pass that feedback on ;). It's nothing forced, if folks don't find benefit in it, they stop coming out. I'm just of the mindset that not every ride has to bash your...

    Yeah, we're pretty fortunate. I think it's actually much longer than that, I've just never ridden the full length. It's a canal access/security road that is pretty much pancake flat (except for a few...
