REALLY needs to view these photos. Be patient, you won't be disappointed.

Under "Opus Criterium Coverage" click on the Cat V race.

The look on his face actually made me feel bad for him. Right after I stopped laughing.

Man, I gotta move closer to Minnesota.

The only crit within a 6 hour drive was a combine 3/4/5 for me. It sucked. I SO would have owned that catV race. Ah, who am I kidding... I probably would have been shelled there also.

p.s. loved the guy with the helmet mirror.

Maybe, the guy that won though won by a lot I think. Come and join us! Otherwise it was fairly laid back and a ton of fun!

Rock on. Reminds me of a guy that rides near my house in the eveings. Guy looks like he came straight from Revenge of the Nerds V open auditions, but he puts in about 8000 miles a year. Hard core.

Picture 40 makes a convincing case that he either won by a substantial margin or lost by one.

I really feel for the guy. You pay your money and line up, look around, and then take a looooong look in your (helmet) mirror.

Also, notice how few unattached 5's there are the first race of the season?
