My PR Report

Since you demanded it, I present my PR Report:

I was awesome. I dominated. Everyone else sucked. The only reason you didn't realize how domiate I was is because I was so dominate it created a time/space distortion that confused you. I would have won if only I hadn't been blocked/caught behind a crash/had a sore tooth/cared.

Actually it was a hard race. I was in a couple moves with Rihcter and it was all I could do to stay on his wheel. He is so fast at times that I think he doesn't realize the difference between us going slow and going fast. Several times I was behind him and he drilled it and I was out of the saddle trying to hold on, ful bore.

But, in the end it's hard for me to get jazzed about a points race on the road. I don't even know who won last night. I like the texture and tactics of racing. All the points racing does is make it fast with no chance of a break succeeding... because everyone has to sprint for points on each lap. I also think in the context of course selections at PR this year it's getting a bit monotonous.

So, I need advice. I am a racer here in the northwest and I have a full time job that doesnt allow me to race on the weekends. I sometimes find myself trying to go fast when I know I cant and I try to do it at masters races because I just dont have time to train that much anymore. How is one supposed to come down to reality and balance having fun at the races when all these guys practice real hard and I dont even have time to shave my legs? And could you tell me what it means when people leave huge gaps open and then brag after the race how cool it was to be blocking? What is a block in bike racing?
