I'm home sick today. Raced Saturday, felt like death Sunday and Sunday night. I think it's on its way out though.

Hopefully it will pass. For me it hits you, kind of passes on and then lingers for next week and a half, so can't even ramp up training again.
I am honestly at the point of writing this season of, getting a supermoto and go have supid fun on that on weekends.

I have a plated Husaberg FS450e with a fresh engine rebuild that I've been meaning to put up for sale for a couple months. I also have a full enduro wheel, suspension, swing arm, and brake set-up for it too. Just sayin'.....

Friday May 15 pre-run the junior and a lot of the Cat 1 Nationals course in Truckee/Tahoe.
Same course, same start time as M17-18 (10:30). PM me if you can come. I will drive support. Non-stop with feeds. Bring your stuff.
Likely 2-3 riders so far but would like more (10 is good) to do this course non-stop.
PM me if you can do it.

Saw the note. The response is appropriate for here. Look at the course on USA cycling.
If a rider can maintain a good tempo ride non-stop for 80 miles - at that altitude on that coarse - please have them come.
To mile 60 or so the idea is to stay together but I expect it to be social and relatively fast. I also expect the last climbs or so to be all out (or that is what I want) .
Right now...I have Daniel and a NorCal local junior. I have 1-2 more that may come up. Kids are fine with older riders and learn from them. They are trying to beat 17-18s in June - not you.

I plan to have a room at Northstar that riders can use to clean up.

The Tahoe pre-run which is now 10:30 AM Friday at the actual 17-18 start. Got 4 juniors confirmed (good Cat 2/3s), Hack may add a few and big maybe (so likely not) on a team that is not in TdC (this year).

Really no BF folks going to Modesto?

I'm at every norcal race that isn't super hilly, essentially.

I'd give you tips on the crit/rr but that would help Daniel beat me so I won't, sorry! =]

If you see a guy on a red Tarmac in a "Terun" kit, say hi.

Possibly doing the Modesto Crit M123 35 or 45 depending on teammates. No straight E3 race, which is unusual.

We won't know until race day who is supposed to win :-). This one they may decide themselves. So far 0/4 against you guys on your turf, so nothing to be too concerned about. Just hoping everyone is safe.

I'm often very grumpy at races - I'll come say hello. I'll be the guy who isn't in Lycra.

I'll prob do the Modesto RR on Sunday if I can get out on the bike this week at some point. They run the 3's with the P12 group, so I may get to see lil Doge in action.

I think the crit is $45? I may be passing on that one. Fun course, @UmneyDurak and I went 1-2 there last year in the 4s. The finish is a very short sprint after a series of 90 degree turns (figure 8 with a finish on a short leg). Attacked with 3 90s to go, chose best lines through the corners to keep speed and stayed away. Lots of bumps/bots dots out there.

But how can you put a price on a VeloPromo t-shirt?

Uline has a 25# box of colored T Shirt rags for $42. I'm sure some of them are the from the "Colors Not Found In Nature" line that Robert loves. My fav was the bright orange with blue screening Esparto shirt I won a few years back.

If you don't like winning hideous t-shirts as prizes, don't go to NorCal.

(I love them!)

Why? I have two Ontario shirts. You can too.

Velopromo actually looked at expanding into SoCal. They passed because of a lack of potholes and bee hives.

I could dress myself for a month in them.

I kid. I like Robert and appreciate what he does. He's getting pressure from other races like Red Kite; had to cancel Regalado RR because of a lack of entries. That's not great for folks who prefer road races.

I don't think Modesto is a VeloPromo event. I think I got like $60, a jersey, a t shirt, and some wine (re-gifted later on) in the 4s last year.
