    Race pics you wish never got posted online...

    So KP's unforunate race photo in the "suffering" thread reminded me of a pic of me that made me cringe...

    The camera angle, wind-filled unzipped jersey, and the fact that I ain't the skinniest kid in the class conspired to create this decidedly unflattering image. Also note the Cat 5 tattoo on the right calf.



    And looking through another album from the weekend, this photo made me want to find out who this was to make sure he's still alive:



    Let's see 'em... bring on your worst.

    Like I said in the other thread, the kit kinda grew on me....like a fungus.

    edit: also, it doesn't help that performance sunglasses are ugly as hell

    Here's another one. On the plus side, my leg looks pretty jacked. On the minus side, so does my face.

    Trying to crush some souls back when I was a young'n. I wish I had some pictures of me at Northbrook on Saturday, because I was a mess. A 13 lap breakaway that ended on the last turn of the last lap. I'd never felt that run down in my life. You see all of these kids on $1300+ track bikes with full Dura-Ace, and then there's Beast on his Giant Bowery with a Zipp disc running away from everybody.

    Not sure why I'm all hunched over and looking like I'm gonna die. I felt awesome that day, the whole time. It looks like my lungs are trying to get out

    You forgot 'pasty white like a 10 dollar hooker'

    You guys get to thinking you're fat, just come see me and you'll feel much skinnier.

    some of you have already had your fun with this one, but if truth be told it's one of my favorite pics (of the very few that i have) of me racing.

    burlington vt crit, summer f '93. i was one of the +/-15 riders who actually finished.

    you can see my jugular almost bursting on the actual print.

    ^^^We were talking at work just the other night about how guys should never wear purple.

    Looks good on you, though.

    Not a bad pic.

    That isn't a bad pic at all.

    Was the burlington crit the same course as the current GMSR crit?
