Things I'd like to see

I am tired of grading exams so I am going to take a break and make up a contest.
Make up something you'd like to see in the cycling world - winner gets 100 points.
(for what exactly, I don't know...)


(1) Vino vs. PizzaMan
(2) The mighty 600DA getting dropped by me in a crit
(3) 55/Rad finally get his bike painted

Sounds like all you really need for this one is to be a cat 4 male.

Oh, I have raced against the mighty powerhouse that is R600DA. At union vale he finished a mere 20 minutes behind me. To be fair, I had my powerdial set to 500 that day.

Unfortunately I never actually got a look at him cuz I was up front most of the time I did line up next to him at the Blistered Butt RR, but didn't feel comfortable addressing His Royal Wattage.

We'll both be at Copperopolis this weekend, but I'll be racing 35+ and Vino's in the 45+

I'm sure we'll race head to head at some point this season (University RR 35+ & 45+ race together),
We'll be sure to let you know when it does.

Does R600 even post here anymore?

Nah, I think El Diablo Rojo and I sort of ran him out of town when he was ridiculing peoples' training regimens while having absolutely nothing to show for his own, which of course he preached as gospel. In fact, the famed "training is for wussy" quote was born of that discussion...

Cat's Hill? Though they've added a 45+ there too.

If it's a climbing race you can photoshop a pic of Pizza riding off from me. Use this face on me (death mask on the right):

I miss Dura's posting. I figure anyone who'll crit at $1.25 in racer pounds ought to at least get a packet of Cytomax or sumthin.

I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali.. hmm, I don't think so
I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali.. I don't think so

Going back to Cali, stylin, profilin
Growlin, and smilin, while in the sun
The top is down, on the black Corvette
And it's fly, cause it's sittin on Dayton's
Laurents steering wheel, plushed out, gold-leaf phantom top
and three girls waiting
VRRRROOM engine's blowin, the chrome, is shining
Passing all the cars on the way
Movement of the wind, back wheels spin
Pop in a cassette and push play

I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali - yea y'all, I don't think so
I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali..

I'm going back to Cali, shakin 'em, bakin 'em
Takin 'em to spots they never before hung
?? the place, on Sunset it's a trip
Where the A.C.'s cold, and the girls still strip
The record skip, but this girl kept dancin
Prancin, grindin, grinnin, romancin
I asked her to the barn, so we could hit the hay
I wanna do this, Brutus, but I don't wanna pay

I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali - no man I don't think so
I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali..
..

I'm going back to Cali, rising, surprising
Advising realizing, she's sizing me up
Her bikini - small; heels - tall
She said, she liked, the ocean
She showed me a beach, gave me a peach
and pulled out the suntan lotion
Now I thought that was fast, but this girl was faster
She's lookin for a real good time
I said, "Close your eyes, I got a surprise,"
and I ran away with the bottle of wine

I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali.. I don't think so
I'm going back to Cali, Cali, Cali
I'm going back to Cali.. I don't think so

Word.
