    I'm unfamiliar with this "trophies" you speak of. I did, however, win a bottle of chain lube at a mtb race once. And a hat that says Root 66 on it. So worth it.

    In fire protection, it's usually a given what you're talking about is flammable/combustible. Volatility isn't just applicable at room temperature, but for any energy input (i.e. relative ease of...

    +1 on all that. And if you follow the Park procedure very carefully and it still won't shift correctly, you may have a bent derailleur hanger. A good shop will have a tool that can align it, will...

    Or volatility, as we call it in the fire protection trade.

    Someone un-confuse me. Is finishing 10 mass starts actually a mandatory upgrade? I can't find anything on USAC's website that says it is.

    Speaking from limited experience (read off the back), I agree. I found 4/5 fields to be noticeably more competitive than cat 5s from a fitness standpoint. Especially earlier in the season when...
