On the note of Sandbagging, call it what you want but the guy that spent 15min solo off the front in B grade is no B grader, nor is the SKCC rider that got second in every sprint...... Contrary to what the report says, I won the second intermediate and final sprint by less than a bike length, and was pushed all the way.
Either way, I will be grovelling off the back of A grade for a good few months, so you can all get your fix of 'that'll teach you, fat boy'
Grovelling off the back of A grade huh? More like going somewhere else to take some more undeserved cashhttp://www.carnegiecycling.com.au/?c=Vi ... rc=Reports
Sounds to me like "the guy that spent 15min solo off the front in B grade is no B grader"
I'm flattered that you are keeping track of my return to cycling...... but someone of your calibre need not worry Jono!
I hate to be the one to break it to you but my comeback is fuelled by the desire to put back into cycling what I have got out of it... so I am devoting a lot of my time to the development of junior cyclists..... Don't worry, i won't be taking their pocket money!
Maybe one day we might see the likes of someone with your ability give a 'Master class' as it seems you have a lot of opinions (and express them regularly on this forum)
Over and out from the Fat, unfit & old has been!
Just calling it as it is. Going with the system Carnegie (your club) put in place you should start where you left off, A grade, if you get dropped then you can go down to B grade. What is unreasonable about that
Given you have won 3 races already at lower levels that seems to show you should have started in A grade...
Basically my old man does a lot of work with the crits and after you won C grade there he got a few 'quiet' emails asking how someone of your ability snuck into C. The emails were and have been followed up with details off your other wins. Everyone thinking that perhaps you could have raced a higher grade...
I remember racing a SKCC crit a good while back (4 years?) we where in a break together with two others, for ages, and we got caught, then you won the bloody sprint anyway! It was pretty damn impressive. So like these people who were concerned about you winning C grade, I know how good you are and that you would be fine in A grade
The only Master Class I could give is that in my recent comebacks from injuries I have gone back into A grade. If I was unsure and wanted to race B grade I just wouldn't contest for the win if it turns out I had under-graded myself. That would set a fine example for the juniors.
