  • Not fashionable / cool.

    With mudguards and a good waterproof jacket you can keep pretty dry even in a thunderstorm. But it doesn't rain that much on most races (compared to say PBP 2007 when it rained most of the way) so it doesn't become that critical.

  • The rain, like everything in the US ,is supersized.
    In 2016 there was a rainstorm in Kansas that stopped everyone and caused the field to bunch up -There were about 1o riders staying at in Newton all at once as a result .

  • Yeah - there are limits. Summer UK-type rain is quite pleasant to ride in when you stay dry and warm. But if there is biblical rain and actual flooding then you are going to get a bit wet whatever your setup.
