Got Panda Express with the wife tonight and my fortune read "Be assertive and you will win".

What does this have to do with racing, you ask? It will be taped to my stem before my next race!

It means you have to get your nose in the wind. Attack. Risk losing. Don't settle for "highly placed among the also-ran's"

I have one taped to my monitor here that says.

"Promise only what you can deliver"

I should tape that to my stem.


I have another one, quite possible the wierdest one I've ever gotten also taped to my monitor. It reads:

"You have an unusual equipment for success, use it properly"

I dont think they're talking about bike racing.

I just got "Great! Now you're ready for a party!"

Good thing it's a recovery week.

I've got 'Keep on charging the enemy so long as there is life' on a bulletin board by my desk.

Until recently I also had 'Tomorrow has been cancelled due to lack of interest' which was just odd.

I had one last night and it said "Relax and enjoy yourself".

I've never felt so ripped off in my life.
