    Race Report (May 12)

    I raced yesterday.

    To those who are in the know: van der Moser was in the same break, but nothing to worry about.

    I won 4.50€

    That is all.

    Perhaps I'm spoiled by the last race report, but... where's the rest of the race report?
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    If you're gonna post, then for cryin' out loud, POST....don't tease.

    I want to go deep into your brain during the race...I want to know what really happened.

    Don't expect a report like the punk rocker one, but click here for a more elaborate version, perhaps too elaborate, i.e. long winded and boring compared to my standard prose.

    1. Finished upright.
    2. Had fun (I presume)
    3. Finished in the money.

    I stand by my congratulations, dammit.

    Normally I'd agree wholeheartedly, but this time I thought the win was mine.

    I just figured you won the money by betting on the actual winner in Vegas.

    Good race report. And cool blog. Who knew....
