    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    How are you guys dealing with cramps (calf) mid ride? What do you do to prevent cramps, in general.

    By mile 8, I was cramping on both calves. It came and went about 10 times, both sides. Pushed through for a total of 25 miles. But it would have been more enjoyable without them.

    How much are you drinking? Dehydration is a cause. Make sure you're drinking 24 hours before a ride.

    Youíre thinking so I donít engage the calf muscle as much and rely on the quad?

    I thought I was drinking enough. Maybe a gallon a day... which might be fine if I donít do any activities. Might need to up that to 2g a day.

    Race Report: Purgatory Road Race Cat 4

    The race started uneventfully, aside from some brake checking during the roll out which would have been a stupid time for a crash. While still in a neutral start, some people started firing up the hill on Central Turnpike and that made me laugh. Once the race was on, the pace was pretty decent. The pack stayed together fairly well. However right about the 8 mile mark, near the feed zone I think, the guy to the right of me suddenly swerved wildly left and put their pedal right into the spokes of my front wheel. I stayed upright and tried to continue but I heard a clanking sound and I could see that my wheel was warped. I had a broken spoke. Got a wheel from neutral support and continued, but it was too late to catch the pack.

    I catch Chris Huesman on Manchaug Road, and on Uxbridge Road on lap two I pass #205. Then for some dumb reason I take a wrong turn and a couple of Cat 5s pass me. I get back on course and pass #205 again (lol, must have been catching a draft from the 5's). From then on, this was the loneliest race I have ever ran. For 2.5 laps I do not see anyone else. No one to chase, nothing. I am in an individual time trial the whole time. Each time I pass the finish line I think "just pull in, its not a big deal, you had a mechanical" but I keep pushing on. On the last lap I didn't think I had anything left in me for Lackey Hill, but somehow I still managed my 3rd best time. Two riders passed me going up the hill and I thought that all this work was going to be for nothing, but it turned out that they didn't have any numbers pinned because they missed the start due to the schedule change. 56/68. I honestly thought that I would have caught more people.

    Race Report: Nutmeg State Games Crit Cat 4

    The goal here was to stay within the front 10 or so. With 58 racers, this was going to be a tight field. I didn't get the best of starts and I saw that my plan was not going particularly well. However, there was plenty of room to move around it turned out. By about lap 5 I found myself in the position that I wanted to be in. Then around lap 8 stupidity took over and I did a full gas chase to catch a break. Doing so, I towed the field behind me, and blew up a bit and drifted back towards the rear. For a moment while needing to recover, I found myself in danger of being dropped. I got back on, and within a lap I was good to go. On the back of the course between the two left handers on the hill, twice I almost got taken out. Since I was unable to speak I just let out a "Ahg!" Not the most eloquent, but it got the message across. With 2 to go, I got back up towards the front and the pace really quickened. Unfortunately I left nothing for the sprint, and bleed a few positions. 44/58 - pack finish. 26.5 mph average pace

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    Last weekend I had a buddy over who's a well seasoned MTB'er, also pretty handy with what I should be looking for geometry wise. My seat position was about 1/2" too high and almost 1" too far back; this is what gave me the severe grundling I was experiencing early on. We got that sorted, flipped by stem to lower the bars, and it's like I'm riding a brand new bike. I'm going to need a wider saddle because my sit bones are still not very well supported, he also recommends getting a shorter stem to decrease my reach a bit. Anyway, it's such a positive change to get out on the bike now and feel much more in control of it.

    We put our race on in Sutton, (Purgatory, mentioned above). It was a hard, fun filled effort. Our friend put together this cool video that does a great job presenting the culture that is New England bike racing. Women's finish was dope.
