Collegiate Nationals

Anyone going? Anyone live close? It's in Madison this year, next weekend.

Come say hi. Warning: my teammate and I are about the same size, same helmet, same bike, similar wheels (de-badged 46m Reynolds and my Psimets). So if I give you a really funny look, its probably not me

I'm not as excited about the RR as last year, climb is a bit too big for me. Crit course looks lame but I'll be looking to do something anyway. Omnium is on my radar since I'm pretty sure I can top 5 in both if I have good days, win one if I have a great day.

My apt. mate will be there representing Humboldt State (CA) in the D2 road race. He is really strong and I expect him to get a top10 in the absence of bad luck.

Good luck in D1!

I won't be there but we'll have one Montana State rider out there at least. Just look for the curly hair and the red Specialized! We might have another one or two going but it's pending on a) transportation and b) one riders pre-requisite races.

Best of luck to you Ze, CSU is a Div I school right?

Yep, we're D1.

Oooooh the pressure! Apparently others think I can do something too http://www.usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=4856 (crit section)

Actually I'm really not feeling any pressure this year. Just going to have fun. When I get stressed I don't recover day-to-day, bad news when you start the weekend with a super hard road race.

I've never heard him called that, but yeah, he and Danny (the guy CDR loves to point out in his Red Trolley video) are both going.

The only guy on that list who would worry me is Driscoll, but I can see that he is not eligible to race Nats (only did 1 weekend).

Rain for the RR will make it an RMCCC/ECCC showdown I think. Southern conferences/CA aren't used to it.

For what it's worth, for the southern races, I've raced more IN the race, than not. Dunno if the collegiate racers race the USAC events, but 2/3 of our big stage races have been in the worst conditions imaginable.

Ze...just saw this. JPradun - on here - is racing it and is local. Hit him up for a crash pad, or PM me and I can make the intro. You are always welcome to stay at my place but it's about 2 hours away. Regardless if you guys head to the city at all or have nothing to do then swing by and I'll take you out to dinner.

Blue Mounds is a b of a climb. Good luck. Should be nothing for a Colorado man....I mean after all there is no climbing here right??
