Pissed

I did everything right. Trained right. Rested. Shaved. Cleaned the chain, rings, der and cassette (which I loath), went to bed early.. And for what? To wake up to a downpour. Sorry Norwell. Maybe next year. What really turns my crank is that the rain has not let up long enough to do a decent training ride. I'm relegated from racing, and from proper training, to the forking wind trainer.. You wait all week for the weekend and then pfffffffttt... Now I just want to punch somebody or something.

Don't you have radar down there? I was not raining up here until very late in the day. I rode 2 hours in Taunton/Attleboro mid-day, dry as a bone. I don't think it rained on the race in Norwell...

Thanks for rubbing my nose in it.

When you plan to drag the family to a race with you, it's hard enough. Try getting the family into the car while it's pouring rain, and it's pretty much impossible. Yeah I saw the rain and lightning from my window and went back to sleep. I did not sit in front of the computer thinking "I'll just bet it's dry up on Newton and Norwell, only 45 minutes away".
I don't have that kind of luck.

Actually now that I think about it, it was raining at my house when I woke up, but from accuweather it was clear that all the thunderclouds were headed straight for your house. It cleared up at 9 and the sun quickly dried the roads. I rolled out at 10:50. Sometime in the afternoon whilst I was napping it began raining again...

I can understand why you slept in. I've heard those powertapps don't work well when wet...
