Looking forward to Walkersville...NOT!

It sucks that I didn't make it off the waitlist for Walkersville this weekend. What sucks even worse is that it looks like no one from my team made it either. Guess I'll be walking around the Tidal Basin looking at the same cherry blossom trees this weekend. I normally don't complain about races registration or race organization but it seems to me that if you have a whole team that doesn't have any representation in a field (in 2 fields actually) then something is wrong with the process. I look at the Cat 4 AND 5 list and no one from my team made it in the race. If it were up to me, I would at the very least try to make sure as many teams as possible, that wanted to be represented, were represented in any given race. If that means limiting the amount of teams members from one team that can be in the same race then so be it. It's like they do at Bike Jam with the pro 1/2 race. I won't rant and rave and take out my anger here though because I plan on doing that at Tysons, on Sunday, with my bike.


  1. It's okay, DJ. Walkersville is an annoying yellow-line road race with zero selective features unless it is windy, and wind is the most annoying selective feature besides crashes...

  2. That means it would have been perfect for DJ ;-)
