John S from upstate NY

And congrats to bug for her first sticky.

And whoever is e-squatting on the name Westy over there needs to be lynched by the RM group. :devil:

We need to get Peter signed up on this thing. Then the Beast from the East will have to train for Old Pueblo out of nothing other than pure guilt.

What is our official team name? If it is actually beast from the east I will have to bring my hardtail with the custom Milwaulkees Best downtube badge.

I've been watching this thread and visited the site. I wondered if it would come to this... I'll go sign up. BEAST OF THE EAST!!!!

Will they have an option soon for things other than cycling? I'd put my stuff in there, but right now, most of it is off the bike.

Most of my stuff for a while will be non biking, I'll just put it in there anyway. I track my training by time not miles anyway.

Our team is registered as "The Beast from the East".

I track by time rather than miles too, miles is not really a relevant factor when riding rollers.

Not to mention when comparing group rides on flat roads to solo rides in the mountains, or hardpacked fast trails compared to loamy, twisty, turny, rooty :-)drool: ) trails.

Registered.

Just waiting for the invite.

Most of my stuff right now is in the gym, but I'll track it if it makes our team dominate the competition in one more arena.

Ski trips count, don't they?

I haven't been on my bike in a couple weeks. Been hitting the gym every/every other day though. Lots of weights and indoor aerobic training.

Really need to pull out the road bike. I was hitting the local jumps a bunch before the weather leveled off right around freezing. If it would just get a little colder and freeze up or warm up enough to dry out, I might get a few more rides in.

Maybe I'll commute in on the fixie tomorrow...

Mainly XC riding. Like to race XC endurance events. Do long distance road rides for endurance training. Do plenty of big mountain train riding and dabble in DH.

I'm declaring myself the "hours" champion of RM this week with 8 hours and 1 minute of training and calling out the rest of you, especially fellow "Beasts from the East" members, to kick my ass next week.:help:
