I haven't raced for years, but I still like to ride hard and compete with my riding buddies for county-line signs, telephone poles and entrances into the parkway and then a final sprint back to the parking lot. Great fun and a real burn in the legs. If I lose I don't get too bummed out, but it is fun to win some of those impromptu races.

That's about it for my sense of competition. I have enough stuff at work to worry about, without getting all a**ed up about being the best in a group ride. I guess you need to be young, fast and have lots of testosterone for that.
