Pain

I've been ill this week, and really felt the pain in Saturday's race - page 2, 2nd row, 2nd from right... nice

I generally find it's more aerodynamic to keep one's tongue in.

I'll try and remember that Smile
Dunno why I posted this in The Garage ???

I think it looks like bloody miserable weather to be riding a bike in let alone racing..........


Still you look pretty damn impressive, tongue and all.  Wink

I also liked page 2, 2nd row, first one on the left!

How do you like the Scott?  Is it full Dura-Ace?  What's your team name?
phil s

Ah yes the snot rocket!

I love the Scott, only got it last week and my first proper ride on it was a race and I came 8th which I was reasonably happy with at the time. It's full Dura Ace apart from the calipers which are Zero Gravity. Wheels are DT Swiss 1450s and the chunky thing on the stem is a Garmin which I am a massive fan of now. Team name is Mosquito Bikes RT, we're a small team sponsored by a north london bike shop.

Which Garmin?  Thinking of trying one out for the holidays...

I just built up a set of wheels for my Christmas present (to myself) from a set of Neuvation carbon wheels (the C50's) which I was very excited about originally (see earlier posts here somewhere) but did not like after I tried them a few times.  The hubs were crap and the bladed spokes were too flexible for my 205 lbs.  So I bought a pair of DT Swiss hubs (in black) and some round spokes (also black anodized aluminum) and used the Neuvation rims which are actually the exact same rims as Zipps (made for both Zipp and Neugent by the same factory) and have a pair of wheels that are better than the Zipp 404's for about half the price.

The tires are being glued on as I write this and they should be ready for a trial this week.

Good luck to Mosquito Bikes RT!  Let me ask you:  what races are being run this time of year in the London area?  Here we have NADA except a few winter 'cross races.  My season is over and I am beginning a new cycle of training.  I weightlift and do a lot of "core" exercises 2X/week, I ride 30-60 minutes of hard cyclocross 2X/week. and I do 2-5 hours of road riding slow, at a little more than 50% HR max 2X/week.  Those two days are a nice rest, but I get really cold going that slow.

I have the Garmin Edge 305, superb piece of kit once you figure out its potential uses. We have a winter series here, run on a closed circuit once a week - 1hr plus five laps. The picture is from last Saturday's, which I now see had an average wind of 25.5mph and a max gust of 34mph  Shocked

KER, we're road riding tomorrow morning at 8:30--leaving from Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA.  The forecast is low to mid-20's (F) and a NNW wind from 20-30 mph.  Should be nice heading up to Provincetown.  What's better is that I'm limiting my ride to 55% HRmax so it should be extra cold.
