It's March 7th - 9th. For more info check out http://www.thresholdpower.com/tracktraining.html
Hope to see some more IBC'ers at the track in NH this year. I'll post when we have the NH schedule dialed in for the 2008 season. Oh...We'll have lights this year for training & racing 7 nights per week!

Most of the rest of the Master's team drove out to Greenfield (2 hours) to ride Jay Gump's Computrainers at Incline Training. I'd rather have my teeth pulled. It was totally ridable outside today. Had a great 2 hour ride. 120 TSS. You won't find me on a backward time machine unless the conditions become dire. Check these Kenda Klondike Skinny studded tires I picked up today. We're supposed to get some snow Sunday night. Can't wait to try 'em out on Monday.

Well, I thought I was going to treat myself to a 40th birthday party by registering for Battenkill, only to find out yesterday from you guys that the field was already full! I'll be in the 30+ instead, ehich may be a mixed blessing, as the field size is seemingly much smaller there...I'm either on the trainer or at the ski track, so I might see you there. Hope everyone is having a great holiday season...Marvin Wang
Had a nice 2 hour ride today. Only road which was impassable was the one through Great Brook Farm. Sorry no one could join me. Today did represent the GGP (Great Glove Problem.) The gloves that weren't warm enough yesterday, were too warm for today. That doesn't mean my hands were warm, just that they were cold from being wet from the inside out (sweat.) I want to live in Maui.

I absolutely hate riding inside! I also absolutely hate not riding. So given the choices, I'm going to get wet, cold, and risk falling. But the roads have been above freezing for a few days, so I think they will be just wet by noon not frozen. My driveway and dirt road are skating rinks, so I have a 200 yd walk out to ridable conditions. I ordered Kenda studded snow tires for my 'cross bike. That will make this easier. Here is a picture of my cross bike set up with fenders and Conti 4 seasons tires. I'll be back when I'm thawed enough to type.
Well, as usual I couldn't get through my 3 week rest period. Made it a bit over 2 weeks. Been out on my cross bike twice. Getting ready for Florida and Spain in Jan and Feb. I'm expecting an IF S and S coupled bike for traveling soon. I'm getting too old for the cold. My youngest daughter has 2 more years til college. Then we are so south for the winter. Here's a picture of my cross bike set up with fenders. I'm ordering Swalbe studded tires for it. Too much ice.
