    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.

    (1) Vino vs. PizzaMan
    QUOTE]


    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.
