Does anyone know the location and dates of the USCF Masters Nationals competition for this year (2002)?

Perhaps I should have been more specific - ie the location and dates of the USCF Masters Nationals for TT, Road and Criterium events for 2002?

why not race the elite nats and try to win a real jersey?
Sure, especially if he's 60 yrs old!Kerry Irons

Think it through before you flap your yap.

You should be able to get this from the USCF web site.
My guess is he was joking.shirt

Just a guess, that. Being a professional smart-ass (and I do mean that in the renumerative sense), I think I recognize an attempt at wit.
Were you at the Elite Nats? If so, who are you. I was there.allervite

To: "str8dum1"

A cyclist, having ridden and raced for many years, instinctively knows that the beer cans and crass remarks from the dilapidated cars, and the scoundrelous breed of dog that attacks you are directly proportional to the quality of the neighborhood in which you happen to be riding!!!

To: all other members of the RoadBikeReview Board -- I have been reading these discussion boards for about three weeks and find them to be very knowledgeable, helpful, and interesting.

The USA site has no info on Masters Nationals(what a suprise) My district rep has told my the location is Bakersfield CA in early July. The RR will probably be on a weekday again to encourage everyone with a job to show up. Good luck if you go.

Be warned if you race Masters Nationals. The masters who I ride with jokingly say "the nationals race is so fast, the trees bend and almost break at the passing of the field". Any young cat 4 or 5 that thinks they could whoop-up on an experienced master will get an education!

The masters I ride with may be only a few seconds slower than a Sr 1, if at all. I think you gotta be at least a 3 to go to Nationals, though.

Most of them are ex 1's and 2's. Can you say Roberto Gaggioli? A lot of us in CA have watched him take the prize in the Master's race and race with the pro's in the same day.
Gaggioli is a beast!Tig

I got to watch him race in the old defunct racing league (forgot the name, anyone remember it?) that had city teams and would ride for point primes on a crit course. It was in a small town I used to do volunteer EMS for. Roberto was brutal on the other guys! He still had his long rock-n-roll star haircut back then. He had a bigger than life personality that day as well. I remember him on the Coors Light team as well. He always had a wicked sprint.
