Race Report (June 23th)

I raced today.

It was wet and dirty.

I'm not sure if sprinting with a compact helped or hindered.

I won 4.50€

That is all.

You are a pro. I'm reporting you to the IRS, they will cross reference this against any reported 1099 income (or lack thereof).

And don't try to weasel out of it with the old 'but I'm not in America now' excuse. You are being watched.

You poor, naieve, deluded bike dweeb. As if that matters to some of the more overzealous agents at the IRS:Expatriate Bike Racer Division.

4 euros or 4 million, they'll come for you. And that George Hincapie dude too.
