get happy with bike racing

lil Lucas E is off the front with that solo-artist McCartney.

Disco is really tryin' to put the hurt on Phonak today. Torrential rains and Floyd's boys are gonna have to be out front the whole race.

le ouch.

This could be a huge day for Lucas, though.

... stupid work in the way again.

ventoso, lucas, n' mcCartney out in front by over 4 minutes. Poor Ollerenshaw in the middle.

Ben's got Dietrich in the rest of the break ... but they'll be swallowed up soon by Floyd's grinding machine.

gotta like how Disco is playing this, though.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

mcCartney is just a machine when it comes to riding off the front in a bike race.

i hope Vaughters is tellin' Lucas to only go to the front when the camera is on them.

that's some tough mo'fo racin' for a kid who weighs a buck-ten.

ventoso is old-school ... he can hammer the miles.

cool race. wish there was video of it.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i think last year there was something like 20 or 30 guys who made the final selection. Good day for GoBenGo to get another top-5.

Freddie might make it over, but no other huge sprinters. Not with popovych throwin' down like you know he will be to step on the throat of Phonak.

final k's of this thing are gonna be brutal.

follow wheels, bennyJ. Follow them wheels, baby.

McCartney and Ventoso are doing the majority of the work now. Euser is pulling through but not as often and for not as long. This is quite sensible considering the company he keeps. Its a great experience for him.

somebody heard the word.

I hope gobengo makes the move and gets some. Good to see him in the top 20. There's big NRC points in this one.

Sheesh, Floyd might win the NRC if he friggin wins this race...offa 2 races!

Velo Bella said...

I thought you said work was getting in the way

no travel policy for you

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

and your consultants are being ignored, i see.

it's friday dammit.

let's party.

- - -

if bennyJ can make it over that climb with the leaders - he'll be in a sweet spot to launch an attack late - those final k's are gonna be insano. let's hope.

Velo Bella said...

the consultants are eating spinach dip and spring rolls

X Bunny said...

when do they go back home?

Velo Bella said...


then I am going for a nice long bike ride....

...err I mean sprints.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

pre-race sprinteys.


- - -

looks like Phonak is going to be tempo'n enough to keep a big bunch together for the finish.


looks like it will be a sprinter's day.

Velo Bella said...

I wish you were here to do those sprinteys with me

I like chasing you...

VeloRainDog said...

jeesus. mccartney attacked again after getting caught.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

oh yeah, baby.

- - -

is Ben in the front group?

down to 10km to the finish.

friggin' mcCartney got swallowed up, then attacked again with some Quick'er.

shyte. that's insano.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

mcCartney was just in the right place at the right time. now he's just throwin' bravado.

that's cool.

come'on ben, be in that group, brudda.

Another rider is attacking from the peloton.

aararararrgggghhhh ... why can't i see this race.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

lunch ride blown ... because of racing lust.


Velo Bella said...

I'm blaming it on the rain anyway

VeloRainDog said...

another 6th for BJM.

PAB said...

That is another impressive result.

That podium is callin him...

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

damn that's knockin' on the door.

who's achin' to give that sum'bitch a leadout?

tomorrow is the day.

throwdown for a few, survival for most, epic for all ... and i'll miss the live coverage.


Velo Bella said...

we could just sleep in and race vicariously....

Velo Bella said...

and then do other stuff

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

you flirtin' with me?

Velo Bella said...

every moment I can

PAB said...

spring is definitely in the air...

Jed said: said...

I am so pumped for Ben.

After all, the guy gave me one of his trading cards.

I had goldi sign it.

Velo Bella said...

you should have had Chase drool all over it

Jed said: said...

That would not be hot.

But that would rule. Think of the ebay potential.
