In response to the question, which cycling shorts, it’s the ones that support the goochular region in the best possible way, with a minimum of chafage, and a maximum of comfort. but that’s not why I posed the question. there are several items you might forget when driving to a race, i’ve left my base layer behind on one occasion, shoes are the worst though. however, today a chap forgot his shorts. he rode in his pants. steve said that he hoped he didn’t bag a PB, otherwise he’d always have to ride in his pants. it was very funny.
i grabbed another PB, this time edging a further 5 seconds quicker on a windy day, putting down a 20.47. Alec was a bit cross, he’s super quick in the hardriders series but has yet to fully get to grips with a ’10’. when he does he’ll absolutely nail it; today he managed a 21.06. he really really wants a sub-21. it’s the only thing i’ve got over him at the moment.
I did not ride in my pants, i opted for the full club skinsuit. i am finding it hard to find suitable stretchy race kit to fit my elongated and narrow frame.
