Last year I got 32 points toward the 40 I needed for a cat 2 upgrade and really just ran out of races, along with skipping some that I should had done; I got overconfident that I had it in the bag. I...

After the RR last week where I blew up a new (to me) rear wheel in a big crash that ultimately black flagged the whole race, I got another start yesterday in a crit. This one was on a purpose built...

Dude, that's pretty strong. That's a duration I almost never go for max efforts on. Do you start standing and just drive as long as you can before maybe sitting at the end?

I love those efforts after 3k KJs. I'm focussing this year on when I do the work as much as how much work I do, which is something I wish I'd thought more about in the past.

I've lived in Scotland since 2015 and it's a good scene for racing (tons of race participation across the UK), but Vets racing is more scare. Does Portugal have a lot of dedicated Vets racing?

Had a ramp rate of 7 CTL two weeks ago, so took it a little easier last week (-1.5). Weather looks good this week, so I think I'll shoot for 2. I'm angling for a 90ish CTL by early March for a race.
