    I've got a guru...

    One of the great things about BFN is the ability to ask questions without fear of being dubbed the "village idiot". In addition to the great information that I've received from this site, I also have a new "guru". This guy is a serious roadie racer, who also does his fair share of mountain biking. He is in his mid-40's and really knows cycling frontwards and backwards. The really cool thing is that he works for me and would never let on if he thought I was asking a stupid question... So, if anyone ever has the ultimate "dumb" question and doesn't want to post it for the world to see....let me know...I will send it via encryption to my "guru".

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Great to have someone to turn to who can advise and "Instruct" you on your cycling queries. Only thing is- By the sound of him, and the age of him, don't go for a ride with him. Nothing better than "Killing" the boss with a legitimate reason away from work.

    The answer to that one is pretty simple. We just add up the scores at the end and whoever has the least number wins!! However, there is a pretty good debate at the start to determine who actually keeps the score. He seems to do better when I keep score........
