Race Report (April 14th)

I raced today. It was 73 and sunny.

I raced in shorts and short sleeves for the first time this year.

That is all.

nope.

we had a chat after the race. it went like this:
van der Moser: today was not the day.*

me: no.

vdM: the weather's is too good.

m: yes.

vdM: hopefully it will rain next week.

me: hopefully.

Sounds a lot like what the pros have been saying about the weather thus far.

What no hangover? I must know more of this Van Der Moser. I need a nemesis like this to battle in my upcoming race.

Partner as in, say, "The Sting" or more like "A Fish Called Wanda"?

Either der Moser believes you are a better rider in the rain or you are both hoping for bad weather so you can get a break in committing your cycling crimes...

bad weather tends to break the moral of many a rider.
