number of HI! and how are you? reversly proportioned to your form..

ok, form is increasing, winning sprints on tues, thurs and sat. rides.. all of a sudden there "demoralisation" factor kicks in.. people who used to ride with before, but canot hang in breakaways now, dont say HI all of a sudden and have streak of fear and intimidation..

have you noticed that?

Are you asking why people are no longer saying "hi" in a race?

do you want to let us know where you race and who you ride with so we know where to go and cheer you on?

well that's no fun. ask these guys about my TDF stage victory in '92. even today i school posers on a daily basis. everyone on the bike trail knows me and avoids me because all they know is that i dish out the hurt. old ladies, small children..doesn't matter. talk about intimidation.

i think it's about telling the internet people what a badass you are and having zero intention of providing any proof that you're not full of the BS. not that he's lying or anything. all i know is that when most people do well in a race and are proud enough to talk about it, they typically at least give the when and where. that's just what i've seen, though. this may be the new way of doing things

I thought you said this thread was about claiming bad-assery, without having to prove it?
