    Cat vs Junior

    CAT 4/5 crits are oober sketch in every one I have raced there has been at least 1 crash. Most recently there was a crash that took out the entire field. Junior races are much safer and fun.

    Nationals

    It will definitely be a better course back east. With FAR more specators to cheer. Last year during the time trial the only specator in the humid hot bug infested course was the time man.

    Nationals

    Look at this page from usacycling. It appears they have relocated nationals to Champion PA even though Park City was supposed to be the spot of the 06 championships. This is dissapointing for me because now I have to travel cross-country to attend nationals instead of driving 5 hours...

    At my state championship road race I was forced out of a breakaway with the top three riders due to a broken pulley wheel on my rear derailler. In the criterium I finished in fourth position.

    Am I rushing?

    I don't think you are rushing at all I started racing a month after I started cycling with good results.

    Cat vs Junior

    I think the 4/5 men are slower than the juniors. In a smaller race the juniors and the men started at the same time. We were instructed to fall back at the king of the mountians sprint so we did and within 5 minutes we caught back up to them with junior gears.

    Helmet Bling....

    I notice in this forum how weight is such an issue in helmets and how you can buy helmets that weigh grams more for a fraction of the price. The thing that is not understood is the ventilation in the Atmos in comparison to the cheaper helmets. I originaly used an older giro model that was nor...

    TCR Composite 1 set of questions...

    From what I understand the carbon that is in the CR1 frame is very thin and very weak. My coach who is the owner of a bike shop refuses to stock them after hearing that the frames have been cracked in shipping. If a crack could happen in shipping, what would happen in a crash?

When I rounded the final corner at about 28mph I saw the crash begin. The first man didn't keep his line and the rider behind him slammed into...
