Murat, I was astounded to see your sole comment on my blog - thanks a lot!! Now I can tell someone about what is going on: I am coming into this season in much better shape. I have been ice skating for excersize - much better than skiing. So, legs are fresh and hard, no major weight gain this winter like the usual 20-30 lbs. I will start on the rollers hopefully in 2 weeks, i now have a resistance method - the 'ol towel under the rear roller "what's that smell??" Anyway, wells starts in 4 weeks, my goal this year is to be with the group at the finish, rather than emptying the contents of my stomach behind a building on the final laps. i also have a new improved pedal stroke - less dead spots. I gained this by riding uphill with one foot - you really find the dead spots when you do that!! I finished last season strong - I was able to spend time at the front of the group, and did attack some weeks. Hopefully, I can pick up where I left off last year. Now, your pic from UB is so familiar - I went to UB!! I also did some real races last year - Beverly!! I had no choice but to sprint out of every turn, learning that it is not such a big deal to go to 100% and then hang in the back to recover. Again, thanks for your comment. I will find you at Wells this year and introduce myself. Hopefully I will not have to use any Scope to clear the breath!!
