Wed. night, and the TTT


OK guys, most of you will be coming out to the C4's first race this Wed. night. Should be fun. It is perfect timing for your next hard workout if you raced on the weekend. It is a road bike TT. Here is the plan. After the event. Don't leave the finish line, we will wait for all our dudes, then pack up. I want to get all the Cat5's and 4's together and we can discuss some race tactics that are directly relevant to what happened last Sat. and will keep happening unless we get a bit of an education. We won't do a 'classroom' type discusion, we will form into teams, and do some practicing, so you can implement it at Pigeon Lake. Refering to the picture, we will also explain what happens sometimes when pedaling through a tight corner :)

Also, about the TTT. I have to give credit where credit it due. Even though H&R are our target club to beat this year, we are all just a bunch of guys racing bikes and like a good race, regardless of club. Competition is awesome, and I am sure they feel the same way. Regarding the TTT, they handed SpeedTheory our butts on Sunday! It was totally awesome. Their team of 4 dudes looked full-on pro out there and it was really a thing of beauty that I got to glimpse. I wanted to pull to a halt, wipe the sweat/drool/snot from my face and watch. They started either 3 or 4 minutes behind us and finished about 15seconds behind us! It was totally awesome. Congrats to H&R for pulling together such a spectacle for us to witness yesterday.

Are any Cat4's going to the C4 Race Wednesday? I won't be able to make it but NEED to get in on this knowledge and practice in breaking up the pack.

I'm going to try and make it out to the c4 race.

I'll gather up ObiTrevKenobi's shaolin style of peloton destruction to share with the cat4 crew.
