Still wondering what sort of response I will get from the folks at NORBA
the camera is often less than kind to me....

last night I went through a number of great blogs that i must link to......

Clydesdale Class added at the Norba race at Liberty in PA

I F_CKED UP!
NORBA and a CLYDESDALE CLASS.....

By any other word would smell as sweet."

Races Around the Corner....
Will you guys be having a CLYDESDALE CLASS at your races this spring; the AMBC races. After a glance at your three sites it appears not...
For a racer to select a class is not always easy.
For me it is no easier, it is shameful for me to race in the Sport class yet, there are times where I feel that I just do not belong in the Expert Class. Last year I stood on the podium in third place at the Greenbriar Fitness Challenge along with several other sandbaggers.
The only real difference.... I am 6'4" tall weighing in at over 235 pounds (depending on my lunch that day and snacks the night prior... that time last year I may have been over 240... with beard)
I see these Single Speed Classes popping up everywhere...
but some of the promoters seem to fail to see that the Single Speed is a choice.... Clydesdale is a genetic disadvantage. I on any given day can not just select to be a 150 pound racer.... but on any day I can select my rigid single speed or my geared front suspension bike.
With the larger categories it makes sense to break the people up.... Clydesdale is often a great little subgroup... no need for Beginner, Sport, or Expert Clydedales... just Clydesdales.... the Sport distance and course is usually good enough, but most definitely not the beginner distance/course.
just thought I would throw this out there
let you guys consider adding a Clydesdale class....
it is good for the sport
it is good for racing
let me know what you think

sort of like the mosquitos in summer... there are so many that on a day where there are so few...yesterday was a day with very few mosquitos, I mean cars
there is not need to complain as so few is much better than so many
yes, the mosquitos in some parts of DC are aweful after all.... DC was built on a swamp!
but we should still desire a mosquito free environment
vital to work out on monday
pump, tube (various sizes for various bikes), patch kit, tire lever (Quick Stick,) bicycle specific multi-tool, and a 15mm wrench (which I was without the other day)then in the case of a bicycle that lacks a quick release as in a track bike or a single speed there may be the need of a 15mm box wrench
spare chain links, master links, energy bar, spoke wrenches, some duct tape, and thirty-five cents to call homethere is a world of tools out there
another bike-less weekend.....
