Seth Meyer (Team Get a Grip Racing) reminds me that many group rides are adjusting their start times to account for diminishing daylight. The Pizza Hut and  The Turin ride has gone into hibernation, Pizza Hut now starts at 5:15 p.m., and this week the Judson ride leaves at 8. The XXX Racing-AthletiCo ride will start leaving at 8 and 8:30 a.m. this Saturday, too.

Marc Zionts (Alberto’s) reports that the GTE Barrington ride is suspended until April. “We still depart at 5 a.m. every Saturday, but on cross bikes and usually hit the Des Plaines River Trail.  The ride still departs at Java Love in Highland Park at 5AM.  Anyone looking to join or for details can .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).”

I won’t be able to verify every time on the rides list, so try to confirm any ride time before you head out.

It’s been so long since I’ve had a wrap-up that I had to remind myself how to do it. Unfortunately I don’t have results yet from the ABR masters national road race championships or Sunday’s new Kenosha Criterium, but here are a few reports to get you started.

Update: Here are results and capsules for the road race. Looks like there was some good, exciting racing. I particularly enjoyed the 40+ write-up: “On the back stretch reality sets in: The race is over, no one is chasing.” Oops.


Masters road race reports
Tamara Fraser (XXX Racing-AthletiCo; W-40+): “I’m very happy that I’m strong enough to experiment and learn. Big lesson: Have a game plan going in.”


Kenosha Criterium race reports
Bob Marshall (ABD; 4/50+): “I get second, in my second crit ever, and was still happy, as my original plan was to finish somewhere in the pack.”


Scott Van Maldegiam (Spin Doctor Cyclewerks; 3, 4): “I managed to catch the end of that train, but had to give it a hard effort as I had lost all my momentum coasting up to the lead riders.”
