    What do you think the effects of inflation have on third world countries, and what do you suppose the United States and other first world nations could do to enhance and improve it for a better life for everyone?

    "Can you take this shoebox to Belgium for me?"


    Really, I would ask about how his wife copes with all the riding.

    Heh. Or the more current:

    "Why can't twenty percent of Americans find America on a map?"

    I know some of you are joking, and I hope the rest of you are. I might get the chance to sit down with GH and some guys from Slipstream in the near future, and thought I'd milk the teet of BF wisdom for good questions to ask. Y'all can do better!

    Why would I ever come to BF and NOT be joking?

    You're joking, right?

    Who's the highest paid guy on Slipstream anyway? Why are pro cycling salaries such a secret? My theory is because they're embarrassingly low by any pro sport standard.

    I think it's pretty safe to say we were all joking

    I dunno....if I met one, I'd just say "hi, how ya doing". That would be my first question.

    Oh, and then ask "hey, you wanna race up this hill...." so I can see how fast they drop me.

    I'd honestly like to know what their "defining moment" of cycling was. When they realized they were going to make it their vocation, and not just a diversion.

    They get paid in burritos. This is still over par with the US dollar.

    The last question I asked a pro cyclist was if he had fun at Greenville.
    I'm the world's forgotten boy. The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy.

    Man, sign me up for Chipotle for riding. I used to go to the first one in Denver when it opened up. I love those burritos.

    Mmmm. Burritos.

    Whenever I see a pro, I'm always asking, "Hey, how's it going." Then I get a feel for what kind of ride they're doing so I know how much legs will get ripped off.

    I've ridden with Pat McCarty a few times this year, and I didn't see any burritos. <grumble> Why doesn't he bring burritios?!?
