How did you answer? ;)
We have a high school Interscholastic league in SoCal now that started in the last 5 years or so. I'm sure that's helping the numbers to some degree.
Maybe some of those kids will turn into...
I believe Strava may actually help more than hurt. It gets people interested in "competing" on their bike.
I know several guys in the area who started KOM hunting and are now licensed racers.
This issue came up at our last local Association meeting. It was suggested that the local racers get together and submit a proposal on how they would like the Cat system to work. Here is what we...
Ladera Ranch 35+ 3/4 - 6th
The race played out exactly how I thought it would go. The 2-3 guys who are strong enough to make a break stick didn't seem to have much in their legs today. It came...
I've seen that first hand as well. The 3s p*ssy foot around on the flats and then go ballistic on the climbs. Because they are fresher the times on the climbs are faster than many of the other...
We don't have a "Pictures of you yelling:eek: in a race" thread so I'll just post this here:
Torrance Crit 35+ 3/4
Rider from Tru flatted in the middle of the chicane and nearly put a few of us...
+1. I get approx. 42.6mph from 200m to the line.
Great Park training race, Irvine CA - 40+
Unsuccessful long attack for the win. Barely held on for 5th.
Your tubulars are fine. It's the other guy's tubulars you have to worry about.
Don't worry Steve. According to experts that never happens in amateur crits :innocent:
I envy your postings about the Driveway. I wish we had a series & track like that out here. We do have a...
I like my feet as dry and as warm as possible. This is what I do:
Wear wool socks
Put shoes on as normal. Adjust them slightly looser than normal.
Wrap shoes tightly in Saran Wrap from your...
I know that turn well. It's a bad place to attempt an outside pass since it's a decreasing radius turn (i think that's the right term). see here:
Although Ovoleg is drifting wide, and...
I hope you weren't hurt too bad and at least learned something from that.
I agree. I find it a good tool when looking at races that are out of my normal race area. It's not perfect by far but it gives you a general idea of what to expect.
Just this year promoters in...
Redlands Masters 35+
Smallish field, hot, windy. Every picture my wife took was full of suffering. I'm in the back just latching on to a chase group. Fun race :)
I posted that I made up my mind several pages ago. No one noticed.
Why don't you clear a whole lot up for everyone and post what race this was. Name & location.
If your experience trumps everyone else's then put it out there.
It was about getting bored with teamwork and wanting to race unattached. Along those lines here is an example of when (attemtped) teamwork goes wrong:
This is the only time I've been upset with a...
I believe Strava calculates it's own distance & speeds based on the uploaded GPS data. It ignores the speed & distance from your device's wheel sensor.
This can obviously introduce...
Anyway...I'm going out for a quick little 40 mile ride. I'll be back in an hour.
Don't bother anymore. It's obvious he hasn't really understood what we've been trying to convey.
I have to admit I've thought of talking to your teammate about it. I've lead him out for the sprint on our Saturday ride more than a few times.
I hit 40+ twice this week on solo rides. ...
hey now! :D
I suppose a more reasonable Internet story is that all collected data is flawed in a way that conveniently supports your argument.
The reality is that in large populations there are large...
