Called 10 laps of each of the two races. Ate pizza at Navone Studios.

And I decided to take a rest day...

How did I know about that and you didn't?

Rest day? You could have gone and watched...

Sounds like a pretty good reason to stay home. Sure to bring out all the dopes trying to impress the guy.

I was away from internet most of the day. I was prepping (partially prepping) house for visitors this weekend. And I was so tired my bike is still in my car now from Tue night. I may ride tonight though.

CDR is a promoter. Bring out the dopes would mean future $'s in his pocket if he was there to leverage it. I'm sorry that he missed the opportunity.

And a few of the dopes that show up might eventually become real bike racers. I can dream, can't I?

I'm a promoter but not of the summer Bethel Series. I am a big fan of Navone Studios, who supplies the pizza and other food/drink.

I did think about the whole "If I attack then Paul will say my name". Must have been massive attacks for a while.

*edit* even the pros get sucked into it. In 1985, when Hinault and Lemond were on La Vie Claire (or was it 1986?), a movie studio took footage of the Tour as background shots for a then planned Dustin Hoffman movie "Yellow Jersey". Apparently this flat transition stage turned into a huge pursuit when Hinault, Phil Anderson (with 3 teammates), Stephen Roche (with 3 teammates), and some other guys took off. They were all hamming it up for the camera.

It's just that experience says high profile people or cameras (the motion picture kind) at races lead to more crashes.

That would explain the finish of Stage 4 at the ToS.

I think people forget by the winter about anything they might have picked up in the summer. I just rely on return racers for next year.

I am helping with a charity ride Oct 2 (Pedal for Paws - a cat thing, go figure). Maybe I can do something. Hm.

At least Paul can occasionally get the call right. Phil just picks a name at random. My Versus movie was based on actual fact, I was watching a DVD of one of the spring classics and he got the actual race wrong.
