I'll be at BL for CAT 3/4 (no CAT 3 wtf?). I'll be at SLR for maybe 3 laps working for a teammate. At that point he should be in a break and I'll be OTB.

I'm not giving away any top secret info. Eric won Punchbowl last week so I'm sure all the climbers know him by now.

I'm in no condition to compete for 75 miles. My only goal is to try and be near the front on one of the early laps to help drive the pace up for a few minutes. At that point it will be up to him.

I'm in for SLR in the 3's. I have no idea how it's going to go since I'm coming off a 3 week endurance training block.

Oh, and for the record, I'm not doing Barrio Logan because it's 3/4. Wtf? Why do the 4's have their own race, and then get a 3/4 as well?

I'm not complaining since it allows me to double up, with tacos in between.

Should I embrace the suck and sign up for SLR as well?

It's just kind of stupid for the 3s. I could understand if the 4s didn't already have their own race. I guess there are more 4s than 3s so they probably can get more people overall this way. Anyway, you will have to deal with my teammate.

But not me, I suck at crits and I'm not going.

What team do you race for again? I want to make sure to stay clear of your backside in the 3/4s.

In for both. I'm sort of looking forward to the road race. They added another lap this year-- 103 miles should be excellent training.

Chances are you will do a sub-4 hour century

We're only doing 74 miles.

Probably not. Last year we averaged 24.2mph and I don't see us going much faster than that this year. It'll probably be closer to 4:15-4:20

The gas will give me the little bit of extra to hang with with the Ultimate Cat guys.

I would love to do SLR but I'm too fat this season for it.

Next year...

I am going to do SLR. But I am not even in the same league as you guys. My choice is do I want to get dropped from the Masters 4/5 or the standard 5A or 5B?

A teammate of mine, CAT4, is doing SLR as his first ever road race. Is it a tough race? I haven't looked at the profile.

That map is for the old course. The new course isn't as hard- http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2777609

It's a 5 minute climb that's steepest in the middle and flattens out about 1/2 mile from the finish. The rest of the course is basically flat.

The old course was pretty hard, the new one as Eric said, not as much. Power climber kind of course.
