If You Didn't Puke, You Didn't Go Hard Enough. Navy, Day 2

    Rich puked, I kid you not, 12 times today, by his own count. This includes once while he was racing and once into the water fountain. It was (he claims), mostly water, but still. Come on, really? You're really going to just step off to the side and puke again? That's not getting old/disgusting/painful? He puked once right in front of his car, right in front of a bunch of VT dudes, who got all grossed out.

    There's a point here. Rich went hard enough that he puked, over and again (or just drank too much water at a poorly-chosen time). I did not ride hard enough that I puked (I'm not a puker anyways). Rich beat me by 43 seconds. (He finished 4th, me 6th.) Lesson learned. There's another TT next weekend - if I don't puke, I haven't gone hard enough. It's going to be a tough goal to reach - 7 years of football, a year and a half I've been seriously running/transitioning to cycling, and I've never puked because of a workout. Closest I ever came was finishing the half-marathon.

    We were worried when it started snowing as we arrived at the site (on time today), but that turned out not to be an issue. Scott did spend some quality time on the trainer in the snow. The TT was overall a little rough - it was rolling, just enough that it neutralized the advantage I have of being able to just barrel down hills. No slope was long enough. However, I do have the side advantage of being able to fight crosswinds a little easier - I don't get blown around as much. I spent a lot more time than I usually do spinning - pushing big gears was not a strategy I wanted to pursue on that course.

    It was an interesting exercise in mindset. I tried to just focus at the beginning - waiting in the start tent, I tried to just put everything out of my head and think about riding. Next week, I think I'll try working myself up into a rage. It's a risky strategy, as then you have to worry about what happens when you inevitably cannot sustain the anger all the way through a 40 minute time trial. But next week's starts uphill, so I may need the rage. I find that you don't really get a chance to think about much during the race; I remember a lot of focus on responding to the terrain and chasing down the guy in front of me, with an odd thought here or there such as "what is this noise my bike is making?" or "I'm racing my bike through a snowy forest in Maryland. How did I get here?"

    Summary: Over 15.2 miles (which I covered in 40:20 for an average speed of about 22.6 mph - not bad at all for the terrain), I passed 3 people and got passed by 1, but he placed 1st, so I'm ok with that. Actually, the guy who started a minute in front of me I could see after about 3 miles. He was a Navy guy. It was a nice psychological boost - "I'm gonna catch that (guy who sometimes rides boats who I maybe didn't have particularly nice things to say about at the time)." The racer behind me was also from Navy - he won, he had an aero helmet, and he had the class to yell encouragement as he passed me, which was about the same time that I passed his teammate in front of me (I did not have the heart, or the oxygen to spare, to yell encouragement). I also passed a guy from UMd and a guy from NC State who both looked like they were hurting. As I said, the course was tough - all false flats, winds, or short climbs/descents. I did not enjoy it as much as, say, Rich, who got off his bike and started talking about how awesome a TT course it was (and puking).



    The team put together a strong showing this weekend - many points scored.

    Asides:
    -Say what you will about the Navy team, but they race exactly as they should: taking advantage of their huge numbers. They had 9 guys in the C race yesterday. VT was probably closest with 4, maybe. It lets them do absurd things like send 2 guys off the front and then set up a 4 man block. It's incredibly frustrating, but I can't fault them for it. If we had that kind of numbers, surely we'd do it.
    -The difference between the B and C races yesterday - guys in the B race were willing to work together, while guys in the C race (except for Navy) spent the entire time trying to get to the front. No sense of "there's no reason we should be doing work right now."
    -I'm now really excited for W & M next weekend. I should have my new bike then. I want to go top 5 in one of the races next weekend. No settling.
    -In the medium term, I want to cat up to 4 by May so I can race with the 4s at Murad. I think I'll get enough races to do this.
    -I'll post some pictures up here as soon as I get them.

    Spring break! My trip to NYC fell through. The pedicab shop won't be open. Guess I'll spend most of the week riding. And not eating. Excellent.

Womens Fashion Pics

    Women are the most potential fashion doers, I say. Why, because in my brain the word “beauty” itself is made to adore the feminine group. And jeans, which have become a fashion wardrobe (despite it’s original purpose as working overall) – ended up to be a part of women’s fashion nowadays. With the presence of jeans as another option of fabric for the fashion materials, a new trend had been brought to live. In no time, designers start to sew-together their idea for jeans. And thanks to its versatility advantage, jeans have been taking part in many women’s life.

    As we all should know, women tend to have much more fashion variety instead of men, for this reason the initial form of jeans that are dedicated for women have met so many differentiations. Jeans material has been used not just to make some jeans with a woman’s cut only, but also for making jackets, skirts, shorts or hot-pants and much more (you can name it). Oh yeah, it’s all shaped in order to enhance one’s womanly figure.

You're A Hockey Player! Navy, Day 1

    Well, if you're going to do something, go all out. If you're going to start racing crits, pick the one with the most technical turn you've heard about yet to do first.

    Today was a day of learning experiences for me. I will detail my own race and suggest GW Cycling for the overall rundown, which will come sometime in the future.

    Again, this was my first crit. The very first time I had even been on a crit course was when I pulled onto the course for a warm-up lap. That was also my only warm up - Rich and I got caught in a huge traffic mess on US 50 (that fortunately also delayed all the races). But, I pulled up to the line, excited, and steeled myself to go. It was a great morning to be out racing - sun was out, we were on the water, Matt, Sam, Andrew (coming off finishing in the top 10 of the D race), and Scott were on hand to cheer us on. My new bicycle has not yet been delivered, so I was atop the ol' beige warrior. A friend of mine who goes to Navy even came out to say hello and watch. I pulled up next to Rich at the start (having been unable to watch the D race at all thanks to the registration line) and listened to the announcer say over the PA that "these guys are a little more experienced - they've done this kind of race before." Nope. I took some deep breaths and waited for the whistle.

    Let's take a moment to learn about the course. Cue cheesy voiceover music.
    The Navy criterium is run on a .7 mile loop that breaks down into 4 sections. The start/finish line is about halfway down a flat, gently curving, well paved, slightly damp road. This segues into another flat, gently curving road that is open to the river/bay/waterfront and thus feels much like what I imagine a wind tunnel to feel like (see also: Hains Point). A very slight uphill runs into a 90 degree corner that leads to a twisting climb, not very long but not very straight, pockmarked with broken pavement and sewer grates. This is followed by a significant downslope that leads into a downhill, off-camber, 180 degree hairpin, which has a grate in the optimal line (just for good measure). This led back into the start/finish straight. On its face, not necessarily the most difficult section of pavement I've ever ridden, but at speed... I give it 4/5 Tom Boonens.



    The whistle blew, and we all set off. I was happy with the start I got - doing one-leg drills on the trainer has done wonders for my clip-ins. I ended up towards the front, for the most part out of the wind. We came to the first corner, went up the hill, went down the hill, went through the turn, trucked on. I found myself bouncing around the front of the pack, not really definitively staking out a claim, not feeling particularly pressured. I was enjoying the whole atmosphere of the crit so far - frenetic, but subdued. Fast.

    At that point, however, things started happening and the dynamic of the race changed. The first prime was called, and I made a halfhearted attempt to gun for it even though I was out of position. I would come to regret this. My legs started to feel like lead, and I realized that I had spent the entire first section of the race in too big a gear - I had burned too much energy mashing at the pedals. The first number I saw up on the board was 8 - 8 laps to go. A breakaway started, with a Navy guy, an NC State guy (I think), and Rich. Navy set up a 4-man block at the front of the pack. Rich was getting dropped off the break, so I took off after them (intent on working with Rich to bridge up to the break) - only trouble was, it took me the length of the main straight to get up to and around the Navy guys, only to turn into a screaming headwind. I started to feel drained, I almost fell off the pack. Rich fell into the group. I hung on, I started spinning smaller gears. I started to get MUCH more comfortable in the corners and could tell I was getting through them faster. On the second to last lap I burned a little bit of energy moving up to about 6th - I should've saved it. On the last lap, a couple guys got past me. Going into the final turn, the turn, two guys wrecked immediately off my left side. Had I been a little bit more outside on the turn, I might have gotten tangled up, but I had managed to stay clear. I outgunned the guys immediately around me on the sprint for the line, but the guys ahead were too far so for me to catch them. I ended up finishing in 9th, only a few seconds behind Rich, who came in in 5th. (Field size was 25.) Respectable, ahead of a bunch of guys half my size (that will never get old), and justification for the upgrade to C. Not too shabby for a first crit.

    Here's what I can take away from it:
    1. I don't need to constantly push big gears - I have a smooth enough spin that I can spin effectively.
    2. This race was all about positioning after the final turn. Everyone's sprint was pretty much equal after that - it was all about how hard you could push over the crest of the hill to place yourself for the turn. More on this later.
    3. It's no secret that I aspire to be a sprinter. Given that I am a lowly rookie, I cannot say that I can really claim to carve out a niche now. Having said that, however, I generate a huge amount of power on the bike, but am not the quickest to do so. I seem to be at my best in a slightly longer sprint - not what amounts to a standing sprint out of a huge corner as there was today.
    4. I believe that my biggest weakness today was tactical knowledge - I had no idea how to race a crit. Armed with the knowledge that I gained today on where to use your efforts, I think I will improve quickly.
    5. I can absolutely hang with these guys. On a level course (I mean literally, here), I like my odds. Alternatively, in a race in which I'm a little bit more comfortable and for which I am a little more prepared, I like my odds.

    Apparently, they've (the other teams) started referring to me as "the bowling ball." Interesting choice - usually something you refer to a fullback or center as, so as a former offensive tackle, it's not quite applicable. I see the analogy, certainly, but though I have a bigger waist than the other racers, I'm really not particularly round. Go with it - I will knock you down, then hold up my arms in the shape of an X.

    Stuck around to watch Dan's race. It was a good race - we saw him go by, jockeying around the pack, in 4th, 7th, 5th, 10th, 3rd, wherever he needed to be. Though a 2 man break got away, Dan did exactly what he should have at the end of the race - on the last lap, he got to the front before the hairpin, then took off after it, winning out of the pack and finishing 3rd. It evinced a tremendous understanding of the unique demands of the course and what he needed to do to win. It's too bad the break got away - Dan would've won. But I'm (we're) happy for him - it was a great race. Rich came up with some good heckles - "You're a hockey player!" to a VT rider who wiped out into a curb, then got up riding again. Something about hockey players being tough.

    I'm really looking forward to the TT tomorrow - it's really much more suited to my already-established style of riding. Pictures to come, via Scott, once he gets them online.

    Back to the huge amount of reading. This is a fake spring break, thanks to the writing competition (and appellate brief, and the amount of work law school generally requires).Source URL: http://megalotusfd3.blogspot.com/2010/02/

    Fashion model thought to be expecting child with Jamie Hince. Kate Moss is said to have started telling her closest pals she’s pregnant. The model sparked rumours she’s expecting a child with boyfriend Jamie Hince, 40, after being snapped with a rounded stomach.

    It’s thought the couple shared their good news with Topshop boss Sir Philip Green, 56, and his daughter Chloe during an intimate evening at the Ivy Club in Covent Garden this week.

    ‘It was a celebratory dinner to announce her pregnancy,’ a source tells the Daily Mail.
    Kate, 35, who has been dating Jamie for 18 months, already has daughter Lila Grace, 7, with ex Jefferson Hack.
