Is going to burn some early season lungs.

Grumps, are you ever on the velodrome?

I've tried it a few times, but would have to spend too much time training on it to become more than a joke.
.
I think, last year, the first Parkside was 50+ degrees. A year or two earlier, it was 25 degrees for the first race. At 25 deg, I was fine. 4 jerseys, three layers on my arms, shorts w/ heavy knee warmers, thin gloves, and booties.

I warmed up fast once we got started. Pic below is from #2 last year.

Congrats to ABD on the MAJORS. Six more races to fry my legs.

That uphill sprint finish is always harder than it looks.
.
Yes, that Wood Dale course is going to be very busy this summer......Along with the Lombard crit course. There are going to be so many races this summer that I may have to forget about doing most of the TT's. Most of the weekends will have Saturday and Sunday races if you want. There will hardly be time for training.

I see Mack guys all the time. They must be the second largest team in the area.
