Trust me on this, I know a thing or two about riding with faster guys (because anyone that races is generally faster than I am).
yeah it was just tough to get around them once the 3 of us got stuck there, we were finished. idiots cornered like 4 abreast at 12mph, people behind us were able to get around, but me, the guy on the litespeed and one of the kissena riders just got the shaft. c'est la vie. Its cat 5 so im just happy not to crash

Just like when I see Albuquerque and Bugs Bunny.

I must confess when I meet some of my 41 Stalkers, it makes me feel like a Road Nazi. The illusion never lasts. Still, I did enjoy the TT and the crit I did this month. One more race next weekend, with the 35+ boys. That will really shatter my delusions.

Pete Senia. That's the one I'll probably do. Did that last year. Got 11th in the 35+. That was the best race I had in 2009. Oh well.

Yep.

Plus the arm warmers were a gift.

The riders that finished in front of him on those occasions were a 9 year-old boy with leprousy and a 15 year-old girl on a full suspension Pacific.
