How Many Consecutive Days Of Racing

Am finishing up a weekend of racing where I raced 5 days in a row.

Just wondering how many consecutive days of racing racers around here have done.

5 as well. I wish I could find more races in a row, because I still feel good after that kind of racing and would like to really kill off the legs before going into a rest period.

I've only done 3 consecutive days, with 4 stages in that time. I have that coming up again weekend after next.

Also, I've done 4 crits in a weekend (age group and category at two different races) and 10 races in a two week period.

The 4 crits in 2 days was the hardest for me.

I just did 4 days. TT - Circuit - Crit - RR. I felt like I had more in me. In fact I felt better on the third day then on the first. I did 4 cyclocross races in one week end racing cat 2 and masters and that really killed me by the end of the last race.

You had me going, there, Event - I thought this was something in Windsor that I hadn't yet heard of.

I'll probably be doing the first week of that this year. Well, doing all of the 3s races that week. They haven't put up the category schedules yet so I'm not sure how many of those are just Pro/1/2 races. Probably only one or two, I'm guessing.

Yeah, you can look at last year's race bible and get a pretty good idea. It sounds like a total blast.

Hi,

Can't remember exactly the most consecutive days/races that I've done but I'm fairly sure it's not more than 4 days. Over this past weekend I rode two races on Sunday (Masters 50+ and 40+), one on Monday (Masters 50+), and one on Tuesday (Masters 40+). I won a prime in the Masters 50+ on Saturday and I won yesterday's Masters 40+. My best "weekend" of racing ever.

I could have raced on Saturday but I didn't want to drive that far and, besides, I probably would have messed up my good karma.
