the **** phenomenon

joined BF
saw even more
liked a lot
bought more
hyped much more
asked random questions in lieu of training
hyped some more
finally raced
had legs handed back, very well done
didn't win
declared the hype bad
declared self bad
sold bicycle
was never seen again?

Personally, I hope not.

There's a place in cycling for everyone even if we don't all have really fast bicycles with stuff that makes you faster like clipless pedals and tyres and stuff. Anyway, not the first time I've seen it happen but the first time I've seen the whole unfortunate process.

There's no substitute for training people, unless you happen to own the fastest bicycle that is
shameless POWERCRANK plug

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
