Nice presentation, Ex! 943 kills, too. You're quite the eBayer! Have you seen any 52CM SST's underneath all that stuff in your garage?

Only a 54.

943 at 100% positive I might add.

I have to say I'm bad with sharp objects lately. Cleaning up the garage talking to Hermes and had a razor blade I was going to chuck in my hand while I was moving some other stuff around the bunch. "Shwack"...nice slice in the heel of my palm. My finger still isn't 100%. I should just cut my hands off and have them replaced with some titanium jobs.

Racer Ex, don't tell anybody, but I'll be taking a swing at the Fusion 3 set.

And be careful with the digits and such.

I'll stay out of your patch, if you stay out of mine.

Of course, Ex might rather have us duke it out with the INCREASE BID button.......gotta pay for his new speed weapon somehow.

Here, too. The weather was so foul today I didn't race. Wintering in Spain must have made me soft.

62 degrees, light wind, sunny. I'll be on a circuit race course with other W4's in about three hours. In four hours I'll be a quivering puddle of goo!

They cancelled tomorrow's crit, it was supposed to be some huge storm. But it came in warmer than expected, so even though it snowed all day and there is snow on all the grass & trees, the roads are not snowy. I guess that means I get to ride outside tomorrow, after my crit-replacing indoor LT test on my TT bike, ouch.

Did you see the leader do the face plant in stage 3? He hit a left hander a little too hard, ran over a lane marking, and hit the deck. That was the race for him. It was a good case study in paying attention and riding within yourself.

It was. I've enjoyed Paris-Nice, but Tirreno-Adriatico is turning out to be more entertaining. Some interesting sprint finishes in the early stages (Cav furious with his lead-out for leaving him high and dry on stage 2) and two really good climbing stages in the last couple of days.

Sky look fearsome.

Not sushi for me, but I'm heading out to get some wine as well!

I am allergic to fish (boo) but I am eating lamb chops that I grilled outside with green beans and red wine.
