tuesday night cycling news

Last night i drove lead vehicle at the training race. Nothing gives you more perspective on the training race, then driving 400 yards in front of it at 24mph for 90 minutes. I'm telling you, it's a real joy to watch cars blow by the pack then you at 70, while you pray to God that they didn't misjudge the gap between you. Something about being anaerobic masks this fear to a degree when you're riding. I do have to say, what i could see of the A race was very well-behaved. Folks minded the centerline and kept things very safe. After the A race finished, I jetted, but i learned later that there was an accident at the finish of the B race where somebody broke their collarbone, hate to see that.

In much better cycling local cycling news, Gary McCrary who survived the most extensive injuries i've ever heard of in a cycling accident, was back on his bike last week. Here's a link.
