I will make a thermos or two of gluhwein for those brave enough to show up. I can't promise it will be good though as I plan to use my friend's home-made wine which I have never tried.

I think I may show up to watch. I'll bring a few brews. I might be up for meeting/riding over there. I wonder what time is best to show up. I guess 8ish. I don't think I can make too much earlier than that anyway.

Well I am York, done my assignment and bored. As I stand here (not to be a pig) I'm watching the girl in front of me. Best butt ever. Like 2 plums in a wet paper bag. And I'm wired on coffee, but thats normal. Time to go eat at Taco Bell, cheap food ftw (for you Rob).

Turns out a 105 is gonna be too short for my bike. I'm assuming the reach of 49mm is a max value. I need more like 55-60. ah well.

TJ- Thanks for the hookup!

I will be at the race tonight!

Here's a Lance for you (I only know Unigraphics and Solidworks so this will have to do)

where is there a taco bell on the york campus? i don't remember that. it seems that university has it's fair share of nubile young women. and all of them drove neons from what i remember.

"2 plums in a wet paper bag" eh? that ***** is shakespeare my friend.

Any type of work must be blown off for this once a year event! Bikes racing around an oval on spiked tires do not miss.
Know I had fun at the last two I went to & now that I live in no-mans land sucks to be me!
