The Legend of FastFrankie of Oceanside. Is it True?

Ran into "Boxcar Joe" today at the coast (HB). Some dude from a cycling club in OS. He started talking about a guy named Fast Frankie ,telling me about his amazing cycling abilities! Says this man is bulit like Arnold but climbs Palomar like Marco (Pantani). Is it true? Is there such a man? Or should I say, "beast"!

And why would you believe anything said by someone named "Boxcar Joe"?

It was after his ride so I didn't see his bike. He was at the terlet!....Said he had just got done riding with a few newbs prepping for the PalmSprings century.

I wondered abou the BoxCar Joe too. I think he was just trying to compete with my "Mr. Beanz"

What's your name? Mr. Beanz!
No really, what's your name? Mr. Beanz!
No, for reals, what's your name? Mr. Beanz!
For the last time, really, what's your name? Mr. Beanz!

Funny, I was telling the guy about the SART thread. So he says, "you must be famous then". Just then Matteo jogs by and shouts, "Mr Beanz"!

I think his name is Chris. If he's the guy you're talking about , then he is built like Arnold, and is super strong and fast. But he does not climb like Pantani. Maybe Boonen, but not Pantani.

Its Chris Bennett that you guys are talking about. He was a pro in europe long ago. Got tired of racing, then went into the body building world for awhile, now he's racing again. Scary thing is I guess he's pretty small compared to what he was when he was lifting all the time.
