Nice senior games group shot!

I qualified for Ohio this week in road and TT. Road was hard as we had a 60-64yr field of 27 with 9 desperate out of state racers which produced quite a race dynamic. I'm training mostly for track resulting it hard racing for me with all the attacks. In the TT I used my fixed gear track pursuit bike and found a way to get a 3 rd in the 5k. I still hate TT's no matter what bike I ride. Tickets punched for MN in 2015.

2015 National Senior Games in Minneapolis - St. Paul

Bought the non-refundable airline tickets and looking for a suitable hotel. Also checking out rental car rates. This is not going to be cheap.

Who else is going?

Hi. I know that a couple of us are not going even though their names are on the entry lists.

Who's in?

I'll be there.

55-59 men road race fields look big enough to have fun and small enough so that I can move around. Course is definitely one of the strangest I've seen -- 18 corners in 3.3 mile relatively flat circuit.

I won't be at the California games, but the Louisiana Senior Games will be in Lake Charles this year and the following two. I'll have the unusual feeling of racing on home roads.

Nice revchuck.

I meant, but didn't write, the National Senior Games in Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN.

BTW, the two no-shows frequent this sub forum. They won't be there for good reasons.

I signed up for the Louisiana Senior Games today. November 7, 5 & 10km TTs in the morning, 20 & 40km road races in the afternoon. 5km TT is a straight line, 10km TT has one 90 degree corner, the road races are a 6.8 mile circuit. Everything is dead flat. I may try to do all four.

Ugh. Bronze and silver for the 5 Km ITT and 40 Km road race respectively. Slowest time ever on this course which becoming a recurring theme this year for my TTs.

In the 40 Km road race, I was solo off the front of the combined 50+ to 80+ field for 3 laps but with over half the race to go and my gap at around 250 meters and steady, I decided to sit up and wait. Tried to go a few more times but it came down to a field sprint and I picked the wrong wheel for the the headwind sprint.

10 Km ITT and 20 Km road race on the docket for tomorrow.
