obviously there is only one way to settle this debate.

Actually, Oklahoma sucks. We've been dealing with the 30mph crosswinds here for about a month now.

I wish! we've got the bear creek park crits tonight. I didnt make it in time last week. My plan hasn't changed, I'm going to explode some hearts tonight...

Running joke cause this kid posted on facebook on his way to a race that he was going to ride so hard his heart would explode... and that's some serious riding.

Hi Rockets,

That's me in the AT&T jersey. I'm not to Aero because I'm just coming back from an L5 that was broken in two places. I'm just happy to be racing again after 1.5 years of being off my bike. I can tell you that being in a back brace for 7 months is not recommended, however, it beats a spinal fusion.

The conversation thats occurring started when the guy in the White/Orange yelled "Hey MF'rs! Hold your Line". Not sure why this struck me the wrong way but I was kind of an Ahole back about it. I did apologize.

Sorry to hear about the back! Yikes. Seems like we met back at Houston Grand Crit in 2008? Glad you're back on the bike.

Yeah, the guy in the white/orange looks like he's a little uncomfortable with whatever transpired. The look on your face is classic:

Yeah, we've done a few together - but I don't remember which races. Either way, I'm just happy to be racing again. I'm not even close to being competitive. I'm usually getting spit out on the last few laps when everyone drops the hammer. Oh well, next season, next season.

spessx - glad to see you back at it. You were getting damn fine results as I recall before your injury. Oh, and I've seen that guy at the Driveway - he looks like he's crying standing still.

I do my best to avoid TXBRA, it makes this place seem like the MENSA website.
