The upcoming weekend has the spring race series marching on while the big dirty race upstate looms on the training schedule for many. Let's have a seat (you need to save your legs for Battenkill) and see what the weekend offers.
On Saturday there's the Cherry Blossom Challenge at Branch Brook Park, and that pretty much does it for Saturday.
Sunday brings races in the Spring Series in Central Park and the 2011 Outdoor Sport Center Bethel Spring Series with the Circuit Francis J Clarke, but much of the weekend's focus (and obsessiveness) will be upon Cambridge, NY and the Tour of the Battenkill. I'll include the registration link here, but the date has long passed when you could get yourself into the race. Also, the forecast portends a high of 62 degrees and a chance for rain. It's good that you are sitting down already. I'll see you at the port-o-johns.
You may be done with racing, but that doesn’t mean racing is done with you.
It was a weekend’s worth of racing that I shall now type about, so here is the typing that I will do.
I leave the area for a week, and it seems that everyone has forgotten how to snipe away about other riders sandbagging and cutting courses. What has become of the internet?
