Penn State weekend

Today between 2 and 2:30, we will be heading for Penn State University for a fun-filled race weekend. The only thing different this year is that instead of an Individual Time Trial, Penn State changed it to a Team TT.

Road Race:
I don't expect much for this. I'm just going to do my best to stay with the field until the 5 mile straight up hill climb. After that, we'll see.

Last year this was one of my best criterium results during the season. My only fear is the power climb, as I'm usually attacking them too hard, have to take a short break while everyone gets away from me, and then get dropped like a bomb. I'm going to have to find that medium of power, yet conservation of energy. I'm going for a few preme points as well, and hope to place top 15.

Weather Report:
Rain all weekend. I usually hate rain in all other events/sports/etc., but I'm going to really be thankful of the rain this weekend for cycling. It slows everyone else down, while I still race at nearly the same pace/effort. Just like the Philly Phlyer weekend, I'm hoping to kick some butt!

Race reports to follow the next few days!
