Did you do the race in Buffalo? I've checked the cross schedule and I can't seem to open the Warsaw results page. What happened? I assume you'll be hitting Kintore on Sunday. See ya then.

I was planning on doing the Delaware race on Sunday until it was cancelled. The Warsaw race was a bit too far for me to travel. (Six hours return plus a border crossing, so I didn't bother). Just prepping my rims tonight for the new 34mm Tufo's I received this week.
Farmpunker, if you are going to train between now and Sunday, just make it easy road rides and probably don't do anything on Saturday except rest. You won't get any faster between now and then so keep those legs fresh. See ya there.
Does this count as rest...Farmpunker

New Tufos. Nice. How hard are tubulars to deal with?
Keep the training lowkey. Right. Got it. But two weeks ago I did what I promised I'd never do and got myself a gym membership. My puny legs need to be punished, and I'm tired of lifting weights in the barn, in the cold, all winterlong. So I've been doing some light leg press, extension and curl work in addition to a light biking routine. But I'm not taking any saddle time or weights from now to Sunday. I'll likely go for a half hour spin on Saturday, to make sure the bike is still working.
What's the word on this course? Could be snowy. Should be fun.

Tufo's and Delaware cancellationmorati

The Delaware race I'm speaking of is in Buffalo. It was cancelled last weekend 'cause they couldn't get a permit for the city park.
As for the Tufo's, I really like them and although they are a bit more labor intensive (glueing and what not) they pay for it in ride quality and allow you to run super low pressures without pinch-flatting. When the conditions get really bad they really shine. Have already convinced alot of 'crossers to make the switch.
Have never raced at Baldwin farm circuit but have heard only good things. See ya there.
