The Sweetest Taboo
After years of wondering why the race schedule peters out mid-July I now have the answer. Everyone is on vacation or at weddings. It's true; I suspect that the young kids are at NRC and the old dudes have families that suck their time once the weather clears up.
That said, I finish every year (even one I race lightly in) thinking I could have done more! I want to do more!
So, maybe it's time to address the greatest Taboo of all! No, not my spelling! Shut up you! I mean racing earlier. I mean, I've seen you guys. It's not like you aren't racing your training rides anyway. Any yah it rains but.. it racing until June already! Would turnout suffer? Maybe. But it can't be worse that turnout in August.
So why not a LWV style road series starting mid-Feb? Frankly I'd do it. I love racing in crap weather. But I've always thought I was the exception to the rule. Maybe more accurately, I assumed I'd do it and love it and no one else would. Now i am starting to wonder if everyone would do it, complain, but love it any way.
Update I: Looks like OBRA beat me to the punch.
