    Dear Clydes/Athenas, I need some help....

    I hope this doesn't violate any rules here or anything, but I'm getting desperate so I figured I'd try it.

    USA Triathlon has a photo caption contest each quarter. My caption is one of the finalists. I'm currently in second place with 1 day to go. I'm down by 47 votes. If I win I get some nice little cycling prize pack from Rudy Project. Voting ends tomorrow so I'm on a mission to make up a lot of ground quickly

    There are no forms to fill out, and voting takes 2 seconds.

    The poll is here: www.usatriathlon.org/poll

    My caption is: "Yeah, Matty Reed thinks he dropped me. he doesn't realize I've already finished the course 6 times."

    We spent a lot on the upcoming honeymoon so I could really use the free gear.

    Thanks gang.

    Voted. Happy to help. I did the same forum internet marketing campaign on all the Disney forums. They helped my family win a Haunted Mansion sleepover at Disneyland. Hey, do what you gotta do!

    Good luck!

    done, but the 8.2 seconds schtick is still ahead of you.

    I'll post a link to this thread over in the roadie forum if someone will do the same in the tri and other forums. We need to get you more traffic.

    Thanks for the help gang. Please keep voting if you havent. Want to be sure no last minute heroics from another competitor wipe out our hard work to this point!

    And thanks again!

    isn't the best caption supposed to win?
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes
