90 min on Zwift tomorrow morning, then going real big on Mem. day.
My son was commenting on 3 folks he rides with and how they ride like amateurs and beginners. How they surge and pick random sports to go fast.

As those three are another guy, wife and me - 100+ years of riding between us, all had raced, me the least, I explained the beginner part was likely a bit off. The amateur part - well, never-mind.
As to why - we came to the realization that what was a training ride for him - was THE ride for others. That sprinting up that hill or to that light was as competitive as it was going to get all week.

He's in a pretty serious training mode now. We don't know for what. I am hoping that Eldo will be open Tues, or the CBR race in Long Beach June 7, but I have not heard yet. Maybe Como tomorrow.

Any of the faster San Diego group rides going?
