1. Running into someone from behind is a poor way to take somebody down.
2. He probably said "f you" because he thought you came over onto his wheel and almost knocked him over
3. It's a CATV race - you're there to learn, and everyone is on edge. Calm down tiger.

I was off the front it wasnt like it was in the pack. He sprinted up to me and hit into me. I have been bumped, tapped, etc so that wouldnt be an issue.

Botto, i didnt take you for a large african amercian dude, at least now i have a face to put with the name after all these years on bikeforums.

I was there and my brother took like 100+ photos. What was he riding? I may have some pics of him and/or you. I only stayed for the Cat5 and the Masters race.

Here are some pics from the event... These should be Cat 5's only. Sorry for the horrible quality. My brother got a new camera and lens and was experimenting with it. Plus he's not to big into cycling so he didn't care to much to take good photos.

Let me know what you were wearing or what bike you were on and I can see if I have any good ones. Also if you need specific pics of something let me know and I'll look for them. I just went through quickly and picked out some photos.

Registration Booth.


A sign that nobody listened to. During the race there were rollerbladers, and moms all over the road. Plus plenty of cyclist who had to warm up during someone elses race.


Cat 5's lining up


More random pics

Is this the guy you are talking about? (in front, he's number 172)

Nice pics. I was one of the guys in the CRCA yellow jerseys. I was on a Cervelo R3.

Were you racing or just went to spectate?

I was just spectating. Lately I have been off the bike a lot so I don't think I was ready for it plus it was my birthday

+1, on the calm down. Did you get to race your bike? Did you lose skin? Break a bone? Leave in an ambulance? Damage equipment? If you can say yes, no, no, no, and no, you had a great day.
