Get outta my head slcbob !!

I was so close to changing out Hofstetter for mezgec after some reflection... Meh!

I shouldn't have been surprised to see Jakobsen, but the price was too much!

Great minds think alike.
Fools seldom differ.
It's one of those.

Noted: my lowest scoring rider was strongly recommended by GrainBrain .

Now that canam73 is picking, it's like the broom wagon has a nitrous boost. I better look out.

one4smoke is part of his Superclasico GC deception plan. Yet a contender for the still MANY stage honors to come.

Nice work on the Bemer Classic Oogabooga. Pretty good race. I thought the race was for second, but Van Aert got a little boxed in.

well well well...someone found an acorn. yours truly somehow lucked into taking the bemer cyclassics. slcbob rolls into second with canam73 taking third!
going to completely stop looking at the profiles/courses in advance for the one-days and just rely on memory/feel seems to be working better. forget
studying or paying attention in class and just show up for the test...hey! sometimes it works!

next race is the bretagne classic in a week. will try to throw out a reminder but since it took me all day to post this, don't rely on it. rosters should be ready
for snafu status around the 25th or 26th.

did not realize just how much kristoff has been killing the game in superclasico. dude is dandruff head and shoulders above all the other riders. mega-kudos.

Great year for Kristoff. Right around 25 top tens in stage and 1 day races! Moving up the all time ladder.

Ah shenanigans -- but looking at pcs that would've been a nail biter. Quinten Hermans! Maybe I would've done well but most likely not -- but wait I had Hofstetter and Bauhaus from a previous blind throwing of the darts. semroc okay you're on notice I better get back into it!

Ok, I managed to spend 90 points.

I hope I get to see some of the race. I'll be marshalling for it.

I was in Montreal last week. I wish it was next week. I would have liked to catch the Canada one days. Oh well, maybe 2023.

Well I slept through that. How'd it go slcbob ? I'm looking at some Twitter stats, they've got four laps left. Glad to see Powless in the lead group!

It went poorly for me GrainBrain but magnificently for semroc .

I was glad to see Powless in the break, and in the Chipotle yesterday.

The break owned the day. With impunity.

Semroc takes slcbob's maryland cycling classic! canam73 haz the silver and yours truly bites the bronze.

next race is the grand prix de quebec on the 9th so rosters likely available on the 7th. the nearby grand prix du montreal is drafting closely and on the 11th. don't miss out!

Pretty good race in Maryland. Sep rode a great race. Coverage was a little weird, showing the second and third group when the 1st group was starting to go off. But a good one nonetheless.

I picked a VG team of sprinters but they didn't survive the approach.

I think only 46 riders made it onto the circuit before it was closed. At least that was a number I heard on the scene, but haven't seen it confirmed in any coverage.

Speaking of coverage, here's the media moto team getting ready. I heard the same company does the Tour of Britain, though probably a more veteran team.

This one was more of a struggle to stay on budget. It seems almost everyone not in the Vuelta made the trip.

Fixed it for you.

Absent any real victories of late, I'm resorting to pettiness. .

Oh hell yeah.

I wish I could attribute my Montreal prowess to my daughter who just moved there, but she was a freeloader for Grand Prix purposes.

Heck, I can't blame her. I had an inside track on MD and squandered that myself.

semroc looks unassailable but we shall plug away.

well well well...slcbob just beats out Semroc in the grand prix du montreal with yours truly rolling in to complete the podium. slcbob needs to self-treat an entire squad's worth of smoked meat sandos (with the accompanying black cherry sodas, of course) from schwartz's and then a bag of piping hot, fresh from the oven sesame seed bagels from fairmont bagels for dessert. that should slow him down for a race-or two. gained 10 lbs in 8 days on the last visit to montreal but wasn't eating for a winning squad...
