Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Let me get something straight here.

Granted it is well deserved, you were NEVER banned. If you were, you would not be able to post like you have been. Methinks you have been doing something on your end or perhaps NOT doing something. But please do not spread falsities about the non existence actions taken against you here. If this were such a huge problem, why was I not contacted? It is easy to email me and the way it's designed is so those who ARE banned can appeal? I've been watching you post and complain about your imagined banning for the past few days.

So stop. Stop trying to make the moderation team look like a bunch of unreasonable tyrants.

Because lying does not look good on anyone.

And if you are going to judge my decision to call you out on here, I did it because you have been calling out my team for something they never did. Fair is fair. And if you cant follow the rules as you KNOW you have been breaking.. and feel the moderation team is awful for enforcing the rules that you agreed to when you signed up here, then feel free to leave. Nobody is forcing you to stay here.

And if you truly think that you were banned, you havent' seen anything yet.

No, but since you got it from TJ's I am confident you got a good buy. No need to ask in the 41 at large.

That cactus picture would make a good caption contest.

Here's mine:

What a Prick.

No spoilers, but today's sprint at that race over there is pretty cool. I do advise it's worth watching.

I agree yesterday's finish was also exciting. But a bunch sprint with "big names" is always exciting too.

Win-win!

I was home recovering so I saw the morning coverage. Loved the finish so much I watched it again at night.

On a related note, a story during the morning coverage suggested one team was riding MEILENSTEIN LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS during yesterday's stage.

Yep. They also said that the aero advantage was minimal. That just took them off the list of my next wheel set.

In my travels, Nissan/Infinity drivers really are wipes, and are far worse than Bring My Wallet drivers.

In my area, the worst drivers to us cyclists on the road are in white pick-ups. At least it seems that way to me.
