Re: [lkhc] results posted for week 1: Low-Key Hillclimbs
- My riding buddy David decided to watch the ride from the comforts of his motorcycle. Here's his perspective:"At my second viewing point, fairly close to the top, it was very interesting.The first guy was flying! Looked effortless. And get this, he wasn’t even breathing hard. When he came by he said “How’s it going?” and smiled as if I was meeting someone walking down the hall! I’m serious, it was weird (and yes I know this guy was in the race, I recognized him as the first guy at my first viewing point).The second guy sounded like he was going to blow out a lung or fall off the bike and collapse … major intense animal like breathing.It was odd … I’d say out of the top 20 about 8 of them weren’t even breathing hard … about 5 sounded scary and like they were about to collapse … and the others seemed more like a “normal” hard effort."I myself fall into the intense animal breathing camp. =)-- Calvin "not-so-skinny slow guy"----- Original Message ----

Subject: [lkhc] results posted for week 1: Low-Key Hillclimbs
Thanks to Juliana Chen and Cara Coburn for helping this week,
and to John Gale for his excellent photography. Once again, the photos proved
invaluable in sorting out number issues. Next week, we'll go back to the
double-sticker strategy, with a sticker on the right fork blade to make it easier
to identify who's Low-Key, and who's just out riding....
95 riders turned out this week. First to arrive at registration, in time to
pre-ride the climb before the start, was the first to finish without a motor --
Chris Phipps, who'd just finished second overall behind Slipstream pro Lucas
Euser at Mt Tam. The first overall to finish, however, was Bill Bushnell,
riding his hybrid electric bike, with which he established a new Low-Key
scoring class. The women's turn-out was especially impressive this week,
with Janet Martinez leading home a crew of 12 women.
Next week: King's Mountain Road.
Please let me know if there's any errors in the results, which we can try
to resolve. Thanks again to all who came out!

I'm curious about his hybrid. Is that something that's similar to
hybrid cars, where the batteries are charged when you're going
downhill / easy, or does it have to be plugged in?
