2) 1st place in B crit (very close to achieved)
3) I'll add another more lofty goal, aspirational. Podium in A crit. Everything would have to go...

It was a bit windy (12mph). But my position is not the most aero. I bought a spec allez sprint, it has a longer and lower reach than my prior bike, but I think it could be longer and lower yet still...

The videos? It's freaking too much work to make them whole in the first place. Esp when nothing good happens for me. :)

btw, the guy who caught up to be in the bridge attempt never did catch up to the break. But I was impressed. He's one of those juniors that will probably soon be a cat 2.

When I first started riding, I would do something like 1000 miles before August 100 mile century ride (hotter than hell). And doing 20mph average for that was my big achievement. Now resuming riding...

B race crit last night. I was dumb and just hanging in the pack and missed the break. Biggest rival was in the break, but we had teammate in the break. He was dropped from the break. I tried to solo...

I'm trying something new. A more polarized approach. I've been doing sub 200w rides on trainer on weekends. And then going hard in 2 hammerfests per week (which may be replaced by at least 1...

Thanks for taking the time to give me feedback. I think you are exactly right. That was my first last-lap sprint finish of that caliber. The caliber will likely decrease over the course of the season...

I told my daughter she could probably be on the podium for junior girls in the state champ crit, if she merely enters and finishes. Good chance the field is 3 or less.

The ones that get away with it don't go to see a psychologist, much less Jordan Peterson.

Doesn't seem to be related to voltage lines that I can tell, but frequently I am under voltage lines as the lines follow the roads. It seems like the concrete roads are the biggest correlation. It's...

Now word that one of the biggest crits in Texas has been canceled. Bike the Bricks in McKinney, TX (suburb of Dallas). This was a race that had a $1000 pay out for races like Cat 4.

On our group ride we have had very few crashes, about 4 small ones, caused by the same 2 guys. The crash rate in racing seems to be much higher here.

Skipped the crit yesterday. Did group ride instead. Teammate went down with broken collarbone in the crit. Hard for me to regret my decision today.

When I am riding on concrete, I am getting shocked about every 5 seconds (sometimes less, sometimes more). The shock is when I have my hands on the shifters, particularly when my thumbs are touching...
