    So he said "What do you want?"

    Do I ask for anything?

    Thanks
    I suggest you ask for a copy of strunk & white.

    Did you know that White was the guy who wrote Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little? My 3rd grade daughter did a report on him this year and I learned that. I really do learn something new every day (but when you take into account where I'm starting from, it's not too surprising).

    I had the opposite reaction. I loved Stuart Little when I was a kid. When I took Rhetoric 1B in college, Elements of Style was on the reading list. I had it on my desk for half a semester when I wondered if it was the same guy.

    OK my unnamed team gives me a free jersey, 60 buck bibs and cap. Also get frames at 50%, fairly high end bikes but not a major brand. Reimbursment on certain team target events, gas money if I carpool, nutrition at races, coaching from Larry Nolan (world champ he's a monster) and free chipotle. a few other **** things. This is for a 60 buck entry fee for juniors.

    I'd go for Tieni Duro or Davis Bike Club, both have solid junior programs. I race against their riders (not the 10 year olds obv) and they're strong guys.

    I kid. Larry's good people and a heck of a rider. We set a Nats TP record together a few years ago. Been racing against him for years.

    You can buy your own burritos if you're 18 riding a Ridley Noah.
