From the last Crit of the season at the beginning of the month.  Got caught up next to/behind a crash with 2 to go and this was me chasing hard after clipping back into my pedal.

wasting watts because what else is there to do at the last race of the season


You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

As someone who prefers longer sleeve lengths I have to ask are those past your elbows by design or because you're so small? I've seen a couple people wight that length and it looks so bizarre to me.

Might be a speed/skinsuit which sometimes have short sleeves on the longer side.  Some CX skinsuits also have 3/4 length sleeves as well.

I have a 3/4 sleeve Castelli CX skinsuit and the sleeves end up being right at the elbow for me because long ass arms. Not really a fan of it.

It was my mistake to trust my teammate to pin my number properly. In the first descent I heard it flapping and yelled "tony you had one job!".

Yes, it was my favorite crit course I've done, 10 turns, a hill, and a fun chicane. I would have been dropped had it been a fast field.
