    Good luck shovelhd. Just think how awesome it will be when you climb back on the bike for the first time after recovery. I don't like the various beatdowns we take over the years, but the recoveries...

    Been sick since we got back from vacation. Up all night coughing. Feel ok during the day, but can't seem to sleep upright enough to feel ok at night. Anyhoo, I'll get back on the bike today and see...

    8 miles is a handy distance for power tests. I wouldn't worry about the short pause in the middle, and I wouldn't worry about the rollers. Learn to hold power on the descents -- it's just pedaling...

    No. You might have a more aggressive position than you're built for. Also, look up with your eyes first, and your head second.

    I'll get it on longer (4+ hour rides), but still not more sore than...

    That's the weird thing about the TNWC. Somehow, it's really really safe considering it's a road race on open roads with traffic. I saw very few crashes out there. As far as the gapping goes, all the...

    The way most non-usac training races in TX work, you get a few 5s and 4s in the A race until they get dropped. If it's a crit, then they might race both A and B. In a road race (like the Austin...

    That's better than the LYC's warning system. I put in a new battery and get the low battery warning in about 2 weeks. Then it blinks at me for 6 months or so, when it finally stops working.

    I'd recommend bump drills through corners. Go to a soccer field with 2+ others and push each other off your lines, try to hold your line with contact, etc. Then move it to a foot track or some other...

    Looks to me like a lot of guys cracked when you did. You rode it like it was a threshold workout, not like you wanted to finish with the front group. You rode up front and took a lot of wind with...

    If I squint and read too fast, the word looks enough like an Italian (?) word for an enjoyable time that I figured it was worth a poke.

    Sorry to hear that grolby. I hope it continues to look easier to deal with than the last one.

    I ran numbers based on actual 4-corner crit accelerations. If you completely removed the weight of decent tires and tubes from the wheels, it was something like 1/5 of a Watt average for the race,...

    My first Cat 2 crit, I lasted 11 minutes. I learned a lot in that 11 minutes though, showed up the next day on a different and tougher crit course against the same guys, and hung in for 21 minutes,...

    Yeah, I don't steal media. The order of bits in a file is worth a lot of money to my employer and I, so I value the order of bits in other products too.

    Pretty much ESPN stuff. Like the World Cup this year. NBA playoffs/finals, NFL stuff (my sons love both, for some damned reason). ESPN requires cable subscription to stream (this year).

    In a break, you're at the mercy of those with you. If someone is cornering above your ability, you'll have to make up a gap. If you're better, then you create a bit of a gap and reserve some energy...
