FACTORe gets * handed to him
« on: October 03, 2009, 02:47:23 PM »
So I was feeling pretty confident about my road biking.  I went to the Gaither ride this am and there were a few Cat 2,3 riders that showed up.  No bid deal...I am riding strong.  HAHA - you can look at the file and see where the three sprints happened (it was the three times the speeds jumped up over 30 MPH...I was going 32 MPH and they were leaving me like I was in quick sand.....it was fun getting my butt kicked like that - I am going to work that much harder.  Next weekend is the Florida State Championship Road race.  I am going to put it on the line and see how i do against the cat 5 riders. 

here is the ride

Regardless of how those guys made you feel on the ride, I think the pace you put up was pretty darn good.
