May 31 Practice Criterium

May 31, 2011 I have been having trouble with my camera stopping 30-40 minutes into a race.  I tried a new memory card, and it looks like it might have fixed the problem, i.e. the whole race recorded. There were not a lot of guys racing tonight and it was windy (but warm).  The race [...]

GDVC #2 Criterium Masters 123

April 17, 2011 This race went much better for me.  I was attacking or blocking, and my power output was much better.  Pat got off in the break about halfway through the race, and Chris and I were blocking for the rest of the race.  I attacked with a few laps to go but died. [...]

Masters National Criterium 40-44

USA Cycling Masters Nationals Criterium, Jeffersonville Indiana, 40-44, Saturday August 7 2010   I did what I planned to not do.  In my last few races, I have been too active early in the race, and then I am too spent when it really matters.   In the first 12 minutes, I worked my way up [...]

Superweek Lake Geneva Criterium

Downers Ave Criterium- Tour of America’s Dairyland

Masters 123 Downers Ave      I love this criterium.  I spent too much energy staying upfront early in the race.  I faded and slipped backwards towards the end of the race.  Then worked to move up but again I was not positioned for the finish.  The second corner on this crit was key.  When I was at [...]

Tour of Americas Dairyland – Waterloo

Masters 35+ 123 -  This was a nice course and a great day for racing (no rain!).  The TOAD organization is doing a great job organizing the races again this year.  Mentally, I was not in this race and I was not happy that I did not attack in the last 20 minutes of the [...]

WI State Criterium Masters 123

This was not the best criterium for me because of the short but steep hill (not easy at 190lbs), but this was a great crit course.  I suffered up the hill because each time up it I was hitting over 1000 watts with a peak of 1309.  I had planned to attack with 1.5 laps to go [...]
