Photo Fucking Finish:



I'm 526, that finish tied me with the guy just in front of me for 4th place overall in the championship. Since this was the championship event, it was the tie breaker putting me 5th for the event and the championship. What a battle, wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm sooo out of shape not having been on my bike in a couple of months. My buddies kicked the shit out of me on nice technical ride today, but it was good to get out on a nice day here.

Did anyone here ride the Tour de Foothills yesterday? Nice ride, great weather, but the route.... too many stoplights. On the plus side drivers were generally courteous. There were some wicked climbs and the rest stops had a lot of fuel.

You know, that's a myth - you should order the "right" size, not automatically size up. I wear a 44.5 Lake mountain shoe, I ordered these in a 45 and they're perfect, absolutely perfect. I can't imagine wearing really thick socks in them, my foot would melt! I wore my midweight smartwool cycling socks in them twice now, and on the second ride when it got close to 40 degrees, I was borderline too warm.

At least you didn't lose to the dork on the mountain bike with his number pinned upside down.

You're too manly to post a photo of yourself in pink legwarmers?

KUDOS to Askel for getting his sprint on! Great job.

We usually consider it cheating to run a mountain bike, as most of us are faster on them.

Depending on the course, I'd have to agree - especially in the mud. I would have loved my 2.35"s in the sucking mud at the race this saturday.

Not much of a photo, but those of you who have raced cross will know the pain and frustration a soaking wet football field can induce. The kind of pain you can only get from being able to spin your wheel while seated!

Just stumbled onto this thread.

I'm mostly a roadie. I can be found on the chipped and sealed roads of central IL. I do a few of the local TT's, as my schedule permits. I try to take one bicycling vacation each year, usually to upstate NY; included VT, this year. I bought a MTB for vacations, but, it's been used mostly around town. Sold my roadbike, as the tri-bike is much easier on my upper limbs.

GF does triathlons. Mostly local, but, she hit one in NY, this year, too. She's having a good time with it. I swap wheels between our tri-bikes.

Watched a cyclocross event this week. Pretty humbling, to say the least.

My stuff.
