I'll make many of them. Should be there this tuesday, depending on what the doctor says. I planned on going last week, but the weather was too unsettled to make that drive.

'NJ Transit'? Oh, I don't think you understand. Think this mode of transport for Augusta Crassic:



Augusta is deep in the Sussex Outback pal. Ooofaaaa. It's 35 miles from here, I'm in bumfck NY and it's close to me. Takes me 45-50 mins to drive there on back roads.

it's typically six of one/half dozen of another for me re: highway vs. backroads. 80 is brutal in the afternoon.

It's really not that bad of a shot from here, but those Rockleigh crits are about the same amount of drive time for me.

If you don't do Rockleigh I'm starting a petition to make you grow hair on your legs and I'm buying you a helmet mirror.

You don't need a petition, I'm doing that anyway. Besides I'd be in the 'B' race. It's faster/cheaper to just ride my bike to the Shop Rite in Chester and ride 25mph into a wall.

I'll worry about other races if and when I can finish in the field in the NY Spring Series. Baby steps g.

The B race at rockleigh will be slower, much slower, than the master SS race. And from a tactical and suffering standpoint you will learn important stuff that will help you survive better in faster races.

That said, I likely won't be there except to spectate (we watched almost every one last year). Too hard an effort in the tiny A race with 4 races between saturday and sunday.

I felt surprisingly good on my bike yesterday riding with the swollen mouth and all. I'll be back training this week, out there again on Sunday. I may go to Augusta tomorrow night, we'll see how the week unfolds.

Haha, I just realized it was a much longer drive for me than I thought it was.

Bleh.

I'm more worried about he Cat 5 idiots bringing down the bunch with their pack riding ineptitude more than anything else. You can puke on me and my bike for all I care. I think that's the idea. If I can get you to puke, I'm doing something right. It will be easier to ride on the front or animate and get in a break in the B race of course. So that's something right there.
