I got mentioned in this blog post about “old guys” and hill climbs. It’s not a big story, but the comments amuse me. The question is “Do the old guys (that’s me) only race well when the young guys are out of town?”

If nothing else, it does seem to me that there are fewer juniors racing, and more salt-and-pepper dads, then in the ’80s.
