    2 weeks is not really enough time to make a difference, so aaron's advice is spot on. But here's how I would approach it...

    2 weeks -- 1 week
    Do two 80-100k efforts this week. 40k of these rides...

    Well, I'll definitely keep it in mind. Some fellow racers have told me about some of the races there and that I should give 'em a shot. (Finding gainful employ is 1st priority so as to fund this...

    Ferret hit most of info on SoCal. Trying not to repeat, I'll add:

    Training is year-'round with our rainy season (what? 3 or 4 wet days a year?) during March & April. Racing season is pretty much...

    Wow. That's new. We raced 2 or 3 years ago at VoS, using TT bikes. This looks like a promoter limitation, not an official rule.

    Personally, I think it's idiotic. Like the amount of training...

    TT bikes for juniors are permitted by UCI rules, which USAC goes by. Do you have any specific race that is not allowing them?

    (Of course, what you say "junior" may be different than what I have...

    First ride since taking spill this past Tuesday. Ribs have been hurting, so I went completely off the bike since then.

    Legs felt great, pushing big gear. Hit 705W peak for 30s (4%, 0.2-mile...

    Depends on what your and his definitions of "affordable" are. Cash flow negative? Maybe not for you. :(

    Speaking from my experience with 55mm and 88mm rims...

    Are they more comfy?
    No.

    Are they sturdier?
    Yes

    Are they better at staying true?
    So far, yes. Quality of wheel builder is a huge...

    Well this has been a pretty weird year, starting poorly and is now finishing up strongly.

    January came and I was slowly getting back into form after a poor December. February was more building but...

    Is Now the Time?

    I don't know, maybe they have another couple weeks, maybe a month.

    But I'm thinking NOW is when the Juniors should be on here, asking questions, getting their yearly plans fleshed out, starting...

    I'm loving Velo-Viewer (will donate asap financially). I really like being able to see the raw torque values on my rides.

    Don't worry about the numbers. And certainly don't compare yourself to others. Racing is about so much more than pure numbers, and there's ALWAYS somebody faster than you.

    As a 16-year old, you're...

    They're my go-to source for tubes. And I do recommend them for that. Haven't gotten anything else, though.

    You'll want to stay at designated camp grounds: state, county, or city parks, as opposed to just finding some brush on the side of the road and pitching a tent. It would be more safe. If you don't...

    Yeah, familiar with the basic one, as we've done one of those just for personal records and on the assumption he might need one later. But what do you mean, "full details"? Do you spell it out with a...
