I wasn't nuts about some guy removing the thing with a set of dikes from the super paint job on my forks of my custom painted Guru. We had a pace police motorcycle. I wanted to draft the sucker, but he always stayed just out of range! Anyway, I could have made a big fuss the day of the race, but the two medal recipients seemed so thrilled, I didn't want to diminish their experience. I had killed them in the two time trials the day before, and they both knew they were racing for silver, so it was quite a thrill for them to go silver/gold. The principle just so bothered me of a mismanaged athletic event. You train your ass off in preparation, and you are owed at least competent management of the event. It does however re-enforce my love of the "race of truth" - the good old time trial. No BS there!
