    I look for consistency between tests. You want repeatable results that will highlight small changes in fitness. If the Allen/Coggan method looks attractive, then use that. It really is just a matter...

    Won't be there tonight, but have fun. Rain chances 50-75%. That track is a race track though, and the asphalt has more sand in it so it grips better in the rain. Good stuff.

    Him: "You can't wheelsuck back there all day."

    Me: "Watch me."

    But I knew better. That's what it took to get third (he won).

    Yeah, that's how the game is played. Sitting up, coasting, and accelerations are huge when you're trying to get some separation or get something started. That's how I play the game too, but that's...

    Slowing down so you don't crash in a corner, then sprinting out of it with the intention of out-accelerating everyone else is nothing new. The accordion-effect of not being near the front and having...

    Yeah, unless it's one of those crit corners at the bottom of a hill, there's always some room. Brake-checking the pack on entry to such a corner is going to get your ass kicked. Slow down before it...
