In Your Dreams

So, I'm on this bike. Same set up except that I've replaced the toe-clips with Power Grips since this photo was taken.



I'm in a road race. At the half-way point Lance Armstrong is in the lead with me in close second. Almost close enough to be on his wheel.

The race is over. Lance has won. I don't know where I placed, except that it's a mediocre performance for a pro. Which I am not by any stretch of the imagination. I don't even watch racing.

The post-race party is killer. All the big name pros are there, active, retired, and deceased.

"In your dreams." Right.

If you where riding that right behind Lance, was he riding a big steel tank of a bike? Doesn't he ride one of those uber light super high tech racing bikes?

As slow as I am he must have been dragging a telephone pole, but it wasn't in the script.

In my dream as I scooted up the Alp d'Huez, Eddy Merckx complained that I was eating him alive. I don't know what the other racers were saying because they were all too far back.
