    Gravel road race video

    We ran our local little strade bianche-inspired road race yesterday. One of the boys used a helmet camera. This film opens with a bridging up to (at 55km/h) and attack out of the front group on a 4 km section. Note the white sprayed "danger ruts" flashing by. He had been checking out the parcours beforehand:

    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    That looks like a fun race and a great video but I gotta say your man seems to really like riding out in the wind.

    I was going to say the same thing.
    I ride a classic and hang the vintage on the wall.

    He's got Parkinsons. Crap reflexes, so he is not comfortable in a group nor very technical. Fine age class TTer, though.

    Creaky, it's just a bad direct translation. Our roads are at least as much dirt as they are gravel. Excellent rain soup.

    No doubt he is pretty strong to ride like that.
