    In regular races unless there's something by the promoter there's no rule.

    I registered for a race, last one I did. I was the 9th rider to register. 7 of the others were on the same team. I think...

    I guess it depends on who it is that's sitting on. I was in a break, never pulled, and the break made it. One guy in the break pointed out to the others (specifically to a guy that yelled at me to...

    First bit, 100% agree. The strongest riders are the hardest to work with because they can get away with all their misconceptions/fears for a while.

    On the second bit if a weaker rider gets in a...

    You either like them or you don't, with the added factor of fitness and inherent ability. I like them, they suit my inherent ability much more than TTs or RRs, but I lack the fitness for even the...

    Absolutely and with no problems. Shimmed a SystemSix so I could use my Thomson. Shim is still in the frame which is in my basement. I want to say it was a Problem Solvers but not sure, it came from...

    Snark aside for many years this was standard in the pro peloton (think of the years that helmets weren't required on the last climb or didn't have to be protective for time trial events). I saw some...

    Good question and a good point.

    My last two helmets were/are the Bells, from the shop I try to patronize the most. They fit me the best. I didn't give Bell a chance for something like 20 years...

    I couldn't make the hill, even in shape. At best I think I rolled in at the back of the field, but maybe that's my imagination. I know I didn't finish at least twice. The new course, if I was...

    Myth, as stated (as fact) in the Eddy B book about bike racing, is that racers fall on the left side more often, due to "the weight of the heart". Therefore a CW race would be "safer" because you're...

    One field sprint "win" (it was embarrassing so I stopped sprinting), one lead out (the guy I tried to lead out missed my wheel but he and two teammates swept the top 3), and THREE DNFs in a row.

    There was a kilo bike that had a chain on the left side as well as the right. I think it used a lower gear on the left and wasn't tightened so that as you accelerated it unscrewed. Somehow it worked...

    Remember that "cooling" is limited to how much moisture the air can absorb. You can be bareheaded but if you are sweating more than the air can absorb then you'll have sweat running down your head....

    Just remember you have to meet all the qualifications of a field - if it's M45 Cat 1-4 then you have to be both 45 or older and a Cat 1-4.

    Older can go younger until you get to the main 18-35...

    The thing that I see wrong with the graph is that there's any kind of value after about minute 10. For me, for most races, the graph would read zero after minute 10. Go until you blow.

    Good luck...

    I hurt my shoulder in my Aug 2009 crash. I could do a lot of stuff, push ups, curls, etc. I could even ride, if I could pedal, but pulling up hurt a bit. I couldn't put anything on a shelf over about...

    Seems like you unscrewed the barrel adjuster all the way out of the derailleur body. You need to screw it back into the derailleur body before you do any adjusting. If you've tried to just screw it...

    If a saddle gives a sharp pain then it's probably a pressure point and therefore a mismatch of saddle-to-posterior.

    If it's a numb or just a "been sitting for a long time" duller, more sore kind...

    I don't know but he slid to the curb and apparently hopped up immediately, retrieved his bike, and went about his way. It's a great race for sure, it's made me think that maybe I should train a bit...

    I forgot to put wheels in the pit, too busy looking after Junior. All good, I got shelled early on. My teammates attacked from the *** and the high pace sawed maybe 3 teammates off the back. It's one...
