The good and the bad

On one hand, I had a decent race and came 1st in my age group (out of 5 people cough cough). On the other hand some dude put a dent in my car when I was pulling out of the parking lot after lunch. You win some, lose some, I guess.

Congratulations on the dent, but I'm sorry to hear about the race.

My poor baby . It hurts as much as the first time my rims ground on the sidewalk a year ago. But at least I could drive the car.

Well I finished between 25- 30% mind you. Lot of fast dudes and dudettes. just that the 24-29 M age group is horribly thin in competition .

Err...
I wouldnt be that sad if it was just some minor body work but I think the bumper lost some paint so I am not sure if that can be painted over or not?

I was going to dent your car while you were racing, but you finished better than I expected and so I had to hit you in the parking lot.

If the competition is similar, I think I might have to be repeat competitor at this race till I reach the age of 30

Why only until 30? I rode my first race this year @ 33, I figure, I'll do it until it stops being FUN, and my bod can still tolerate it.

That was tounge in cheek, because it get more competitive after 30.. the most competitive age group was 40-44.
