I got a good, hard ride in yesterday at lunch with the Specialized crew. It got me thinking about solving equations. See if you can work this one out.
Spring-like weather + group with some horsepower + ending the ride with a 25 mph tailwind + Daren on his single chain ring cross bike with a 42 x 11 big gear = ?
It doesn't take advanced calculus to figure out the answer is Daren got dropped. A gap opened ahead of me at 33 mph and I had no chance to close it. I enjoyed the ride anyway. It was the first ride with any real intensity since cross season. I have a feeling the MTB race next week could be ugly.
