This group does not have any discussions yet.
I don't know how i like the split B's as an under 40 guy. I think we had like 12 people in our race Sunday. There's some FAAST 40+ guys, it'd be fun racing with bigger group. Starting to feel like a triathlon where you only really have to compete against like 10-15 other people in an age group.
How are the over 40's liking it? Better... Not better?
How many tubulars have gone down this year? I have had 2 pinch flats already this year, one under me, one under da wife... seems like the year the course(s) return fire on the tubular/tubeless
HA sled hills build character.

So what's everyone's opinion on the splitting of the B race and Masters racing an hour with the A group?
I am torn on the split of the B race as I feel it decreases amount of competition, but that is obviously relative to where you are at in the field. After racing at Louisville last year in the 100+ man 2/3 race field, 40 people is a small field!!
Masters in with the A's is cool, it will be interesting to see how the fields mix as the race goes on.

Cross practice last night was fun. I spent more time in the "pit" than I did all last season. I guess 8 months to get my bikes ready was not enough time, so I was and still am working on them.
I will be racing the B race again and SS. I am happy they broke it up into age groups, not sure why they didnt do it sooner. Seems like it has been a pretty big turn out the last few years.
Lower Huron is back! It is one of my favorites, and I am looking forward to all the new venues.
Oh, and Ithaca is back!!
Naplam? Victory? New Belgium Fat Tire Beer farts? Tell us oh wonderous Oz, what is it that we're smelling?
