    Did he drop you like an OMG Poseur? Were you wearing full Discovery kit? Did you dial it up to 410 watts?

    Maybe one day, if I work at it, I can get my 30 second power up to 400 watts too

    Robin Williams or Gary Fisher?
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    You weren't passing him--you were just getting back on the lead lap.

    IIRC, isn't it "roughly" 19 mph?
    If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, then come sit next to me.

    I beat him up the hill twice up the alpine climb in the palisades and I've got a good 10 if not more pounds over him, then Jimbo beat me up that hill. I'm willing to bet big money on a Jimbo vs. R600 race.

    What were you riding? Even better if you passed him on a fixie. Was he on his Orbea with the powertap supplemental power generator?

    Hahahha....pretty fast on a fixie. Too bad you weren't there on Sunday. Otherwise, I could have lapped you 4 or 5 times by the time I did my 15th lap.........in 2 hours and 26 minutes. See if I can pull a 3 hours sub-threshold ride in the park this Sunday.

    R600DuraAce,

    For the love of god, just shut these losers up and post the ride file from Sunday, dude. Why on earth won't you post the ride file? That would quiet all of the non-believers! Zip it up and attach it to your post!

    How about this? The ride wasn't anything special. Just pure high tempo ride with some total of 40 minutes FT work and 15 minutes of vo2max stuff thrown in. A new personal record by far.
