(If all you need to know is where, when and what, the answer is Maglianero, 47 Maple Street in Burlington, 5:45 PM to set up and the ride starts at 6:10 this week. Bring your bike, your trainer, five bucks, water and a towel. )
A short ride last week (but intense, ask anybody who was there to to those 15 1:00 10/10 effort, 1:00 recovery intervals and they'll tell you that) means it's about time we went a little longer this week. Cue up Hell Hath No Fury!
IMPORTANT: This ride is longer (about 75 minutes), so in order to get it all in we are going to try to start riding by 6:10 instead of our usual leisurely 6:30 start. If you can't get set up in time for 6:10, just fill in the back and get going as soon as you can!
Here's what you're in for:
You are a Sufferlandrian. And you’re racing for the Sufferlandrian National Team in the Tour of Sufferlandria. You’re expected to take the leader’s jersey (and a very special jersey it is) over the race, the stages of which are:
5:30 Stage 1: Easy, flat terrain with a few accelerations
20:00 Stage 2: Rolling terrain with a series of brutal attacks as the pack tries to take the lead from you
20:00 Stage 3: More rolling, aggressive, attacking racing in which you try to break away to get the lead back
3:30 Stage 4: A desperate Team Time Trial in which you have to crush yourself in order to take the lead, and the Tour of Sufferlandria victory

Bring your bike, trainer/rollers, towel, and five bucks. Be over 18 or bring a parent/guardian to sign a release. All money goes to Maglianero to use the space.
