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?

Come on botto....
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 you know that's the only way I really race....through those that actually do it and write about it here!

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.
