Does everyone know this is Valentines Day weekend?  Just saying...there are those of us that do not get to do individual activities on this specific weekend.  Focus on the WE instead...  :-)



Everyone is missing the big picture!  You've got 3 months to get her ready to race the Tundra.  Now that is a gift!

Nice!  You have taken the "life stye" approach to a new level.  I like it.

Anyone planning any training runs on the new course? I've actually never been on the Comet and need to do some practicing before the TTT. Isn;t the Comet pretty much flat? If so, I can simulate also at the Velodrome.

Considering bike, gear and babysitter expenes ... extra chocolate and dinner at Woodfire Grill would probably be cheaper.

Okay, I was considering signing up for this, but am Very afraid. I've never done any singular cycling event (except for century rides) and am not a great cyclist. Will I be the only one??

No ... each year there are more and more first timers. For example, last year was my first time.

It is relatively simple: they have a time trial start where riders are released every 30 seconds. They give you an estimated start time and you queue up as your time nears by number.

When it is your time to start then someone holds you upright so that you can clip in.  While waiting for your the word "go", you apply a little pressure to the pedals so that when the timer says "Go" the handler can let go and you pedal away. The point of this is to take away the time it takes to clip in so that it does affect your time.

To put it into perspective, my 10 year old son did it last year with 20 other members of his youth cycling team (Frazier Cycling) ... you can definitely do it.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. That sounds relatively non-intimidating. If a 10 year old can do it, I can do it! (Even if he's the next Lance

Doowit. You'll be home by noon. Or 10:30 if you register late enough.

Where you stay in D-Vegas?

Thanks Greg.  I had no idea.  I did not see that mentioned anywhere.

It is a tight turn ... one that I did not execute too well last year which cost me time.  Remember to downshift before the turn and to keep your inside pedal up!
