What, no race reports yet?

I guess mine will have to do.

TT'd. Still having a little trouble with the aerobar position. Weather was a little windy, but otherwise OK. Came in 4th at 25.5 MPH or so.
Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

Old Cap Crit, road race, 5s: DNF.
I found frustration and now have motivation. Oh, poor training would have been better than my preparation over the last two weeks, 40mph wind gusts, our start delayed 30-40 min because of a crash (EMTs blocked both lanes)--I understand the racer is responsive and could wiggle his toes when they loaded him up, many many hills, got sandwitched between riders after the guy in front slammed on his brakes and the guy behind me (dropped rider from the 4s) slammed into me, was was about to be dropped just as we got to the parking lot, I was not handling the bike well with the gusts and fatigue, and other riders were doing the same.

A 3 hour drive home made the second lap quite unappealing.
