Wow, vg. Just... wow.
My thoughts are with you, Shovel.
Let us know when you have the guest towel shelves labeled.
When he finally looked at his bike, the front tire was flat - most likely a flat caused it.
So, my 55+ teammate 'P' headed to Utah in the best TT form of his life, which is saying something given he won the VOS TT this year (2nd GC by 1"), and went OTF solo for over 40 miles to win our team...
I get the cast replaced Tuesday. Going with pink, in honor of Cleave, and a friend who has survived breast cancer.
It's a pita riding with it, and I haven't done much.
As Ex pointed out to me, one more visit to the ER and I get a free CAT scan. I'll stop after that.
Hey, I'm alive, I didn't re-injure the shoulder, and I can ride. Life remains good.
Ok, so I've waited to post this news until I knew where I stood, which is actually not bad. Minor thing with an SUV Saturday morning. It went around me (green painted 'bike lane' in the middle of a...
I love that kind of ride, Shovel. Distance and climbing similar to when we extend our team ride down to a local lake, and back up. Enjoy the afterglow.
Awesome, Sara. I'm so happy for you!!
It does no good to be frustrated about uncontrollable circumstances, but I'm loving riding again, and starting to ramp up the intensity - had a 6:00am appointment yesterday and figured I'd just do my...
One of my teammates has been training hard for it this year - he could do well in the 55+.
Um, what Chas said. Yowza.
UHC does their winter training here, with wind tunnel work and fittings at "Faster", the shop I ride for. Now and then, there are opportunities for a elect few to ride with the team, but I haven't...
Don't hurt yourself, Ex, or you won't be able to move boxes.
That sounds like an awesome ride, vg. Did the UHC team participate?
Should still be in Ogden Utah next year, I would think. In my book, the 55+ will be worth a telecast. There be some monsters in that there pond.
And Shovel, as usual, you nailed it. I have many friends who fit the descriptions I gave. I love riding with them, I'm just not ready to BE one of them, just yet. My quest was interrupted. I need to...
Eric Marcotte's coach, Adam Mills, wrote an article for Cycling Illustrated, detailing how he won, complete with power charts:
"Starting with Ericís first jump and lasting...
I would be there for that, whether racing or not.
Several of us have, or are, struggling with injuries that make us question whether it's worth it to continue racing our bikes. I believe one of the traits that separates us from the 'cycling...
Thank you for your service!
After an email exchange and a phone call, my fitter opened up the Faster shop early this past Tuesday to do a quick assessment and to move my cleats all the way back. This removes some of the strain...
With the 11sp, I use an 11-28 for training, and an 11-23 for racing. Standard crank.

Looks like a fast and technical combo plate. Definitely not the course you want to be on with 'less-than-stellar' bike handlers, regardless of their cat.
For my contribution to the skills,...
