The self-proclaimed East Coast guy in the Stars and Stripes mottiff kit.He felt I impeeded him as he got ready to unleash his blinding sprint from 30th place to take the coveted 29th spot.After I got caught and the field motored around he came up on the back side of the field apparently not paying attention, saw me coming back and locked his brakes up. This caused the guy behing him to go into the dirt and of course was my fault. He unleashed a scathing critique of my skill level made a little contact and then later when I confronted him offered to settle things the old fashioned way.See, I was suppposed swing to the right once I started to "fade". Which would have actually put me into the front of the field rather than out of it's way. But he's from the East Coast and does all the East Coast training races and knows how to race his bike.I'll give hime credit, the one other time in the race I saw him he did in fact swing right when he thought he was fading. It was most likely lost on him that he nearly took down 2 riders when he did that. But I guess he's consistent.
That was seriously a cluster (I got to watch from the back). Alfredo had no where to go and ended up doing some nice rubble riding. Good work by him to keep it up and avoiding a huge mess.We haven't seen a PR fist-fight in months. That's usually a 4/5s thing, but I say you should go for it. Squaring off while wearing cleats is hilarious.
rubbin's racin' fella... I'll see you next week at PR...
Well, I suggested if he really wanted to drop gloves it was best to do at 3pm behind the school but I think he missed the sarcasm.I think the RAD kid ended up in the dirt too if I am not mistaken?Andrew, I am surprised you weren't more up at the front; you were in quite a few moves (the one with Higgie and Ian was killing me). The kid catching up with yah? I know mine is. I've been racing with a cold all year.Anon~ I didn't have an issue with his rubbin me. Contact is part of the game and wouldn't have bothered me at all. I had an issue with his yelling at me then laying elbow asa warning because I "blocked" him. Then when i asked him what his deal was he started mouthing off about how he lost because we don't know how to race correctly; as a coach once told me when I was a cat 3 and bitched about guys sitting up in the sprint: shut up and stop blaming them cause you were sitting at the back.
andrew, in the finish I mean.
38 minutes of racing. I decided I was going to dig a big hole and keep putting myself in it with lots of breaks and bridge attempts.You were supposed to jump on my wheel on the back stretch at the bell to bring back those two guys, but instead I just pushed a big gear until I couldn't anymore. No field sprinting on week one with 40 fresh "sprinters" who sat in for all 40 minutes. Too many captain americas makes for more danger than I'm willing to lay out there on a Tuesday.
Pruitt,I'm lucky I wasn't there for my typical sitting in back-o-the-pack for the sprint finish and thus getting a front wheel seat at yet another opportunity to do my best crash avoidance bunny hop. You beat up on the Mid-west guys and they've resorted to wearing elbow helmets & Elliott Gould glasses, now you're taunting the East Coasters too...Don'tya see, their all jealous of the shades. Hopefully I'll be out at PR next Tuesday (I've finally got a break in my sim. schedule) and we'll double up on intimidating the sprint for 30th place crowd. Everybody watch out, bikes'll be flying everywhere! And bring your padded knuckle Mtn. bike gloves for the inevitable bru-ha-ha after. Quick! What's the number for 911?
I just want to point out that bitching on the blog is a healthier option than actually throwing down. Which I would totally win cause I am a trained killer don't ya know.And to quote Randy B... you all think I got an anger management problem cause you have no idea how much anger I am actually managing.
