    Seeing as how his group passed our group at Baker after starting 5 minutes back, I don't see myself having much of a chance against him

    you just have to play your cards right. i'm not one of the guys who goes up front and pushes the pace, either. especially not that pace. but i try to play the cards i have the best i can and it seems to work out when i don't make dumb decisions. just play each race to your strengths and don't get into pi$$ing contests with guys you know are faster than you. guys like merckx it seems can go up front and dictate the race, but most of the guys who go up there and try to do the same are the ones you end-up riding past on the finishing straight anyway.

    That seems to be the problem for me, I see breaks that the field just lets roll off the front and build a 30 second or so lead, every time I try to attack there's five or six people right there. I wish the field would let me get that kinda time (I'm much better at time trialing then sprinting) The guy who kept attacking finished out of the top 20 definitely. He was also the one that was all over the place during the race, going over the double yellow, almost got a few others DQ'ed when he pushed them over the double yellow and the official was right there. He did the same thing the day before too, attack, die 1/2 mile later, repeat.

    you can't have it both ways, if you're strong enough to ride off the front of course they're not let you just ride away casually. if you were more of a failure they'll give you a little more leash

    plus, it only takes one or two guys who know what you're capable of to jump on cause everyone else to chase. stop building such a rep for yourself! no offense, but if i see you try in the 4's i'll scream bloody murder until you're pulled back

    there were several attacks off the front in the 4's race, but they never got out of sight. even for those of us buried way back in the pack.

    +1. If they know you've got enough juice to stay away they aren't going to let you go. If they know you will kill yourself for a few minutes and then die, they will let you. For the Pine Flat road race up north we knew the z-team boys were monsters and stuck to them like glue, they ended up pulling nearly the whole damn thing and kept the pace high but didn't really attack until the hill near the end. The UCLA guys took the attack attack attack approach. We gave them a little more room (or at least the z-team guys did since they were setting the tempo for the most part), but never let them do much more than dangle in front for a while.

    I can't wait until there's races with actual team tactics and breaks are allowed to stay away. Takes the fun out of racing otherwise. i.e. Slow pace until last lap, crank it up and sprint finish.

    What's different about that. I've considered it, just never gotten around to it.

    One reason that I'm trying the 35+ at LAX is to see this (another is the earlier start and I'm hoping not to break any wheels). I'm going to get a whuppin, but a good workout...

    BTW, on your upgrade, check with SDSR to see if they can put you in the 4s -- when I did it, there were still open slots in the 4s, but now both have a waiting list.
