He who laughs last....

It's only fair that I follow my original post with an update and reality check.

He threw down the gauntlet, not me.

The day after my "wheel sucker" adventure, I rode a casual 20 mile ride after work. No problems. Two days after (as tends to be my recovery style) my legs were killing me. I set off for a 40 mile ride on rolling back roads, only to find that after the first 15 miles, my legs cramped up about every 8 to 10 minutes. It was a long ride home, and I wasn't feeling so smug about the events in my post "I didn't throw down the gauntlet, he did". I pretty sure he recovered much quicker and more fully than I have.

That's an assumption. And assumptions are the mother of all f***ups.



If he was puking sick, his body may recover, but his ego won't.

As long as he was not there to see it you still won
