    No, but I was there in full force. If you were there before around 2pm then odds are you saw me. I enjoy watching, but I haven't raced since I was a junior.

    After seeing how un-squirely the Cat 5's were (I was very surprised) I have decided that I will race the Cat 5 next year just for craps and laughs. Granted there was 1 tangle in the Cat 5 first group, but that was off the front - a place I will not be.

    I have a lot of pics from the race(s), I'm starting to realize that there are a lot of BF'rs that were there racing so maybe I'll start a thread with all of the pics....

    Yeah I was off the front or chasing back the other guy who went off in the 4s race for a good portion of the day. Hearing my name, number and team on the PA system was really cool. Didn't finish up to my expectations due to a guy going down in front of me in the last turn. Oh well. That's racing, right?

    I would love to see those pictures, or a link to them.

    Yes...sorry...I was in a crappy mood that day. I think Domestique got what I was trying to say:

    Which was all building upon DocRay's jab about :

    What I was trying to get at was how tracking doping education and protocol through individual rider connections to teams is about as worthless as trying to pin someone's gambling addiction on that poor soul's grandmother for teaching them 5 card stud as a kid.

    To illustrate that point I used a key rider whose high profile failure to a self-proclaimed non-doper in one of the best Tours ever - as a poster child, almost as a grandfather of the modern doping underground...almost like a Kevin Bacon of cycling.

    - - - translation----It was a JOKE to point out how pointless our (as fans) theories concerning doping in the pro ranks are.

    The problem with a joke is that when you have to explain it, it is no longer funny.













    I still think it's all Fignon's fault though.....he was in Quicksilver right??
