US TT champyships

Well ~ it's the race no one is paying attention to, i reckon.

At the moment, Mike Creed is leading the provisional results. He'll probably get knocked down some spots by the big dawgs, but that's still a good result from him.

Creed ... talk about your nutjobs. I remember being at the Gila in 2000, it was the Olympic Trial race year and everyone, i mean everyone was flying. We were heading out to the Cliff Dwellings on the last day, cruising up one of the preliminary climbs ... nobody really willing to lay down the hammer so soon in the stage.

And there's Creed, all of 12 years old, taunting all the riders ... "are we gonna race, or what?" He was so cocky, so outlandish - the typical antics of a young, ego driven rider.

Jesus, I thought ... somebody needed to smack this kid more often in school.

cool.

But then, as the years tumbled on ... his form never really saw an increase. Was it his head? Was it mono? Was it a lacking core toughness, desire, hunger?

dunno ~ but, it's a shame if he doesn't realize just how young he still is and just how much stronger he could get

... if he got his head out of his butt.

Badwin missed a hard right with two-kilometers to go and crashed.

At the time, he was on pace to challenge Zabriskie but now he has to re-start on an uphill and his chances are all but shot.

close doesn't count in bike races?

Jed said: said...

jed's explain is that he cracked.

bad.

Ouch.

PS: Blow me.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

it's a shame.

the question is ... will he recover?

lot of doubt swirling around poor Tommy right now. hope he gets pissed and stomps instead of gettin' pooped upon ... more.

Baldwin was on his way...bummer about that turn....I'm most surprised that the hurricane/tropical storm isn't flooding the race out. Must be out of its path by now.

3.42 plus the other day's 30 some odd seconds?

I don't think he can get all floyd'y on the peloton. Not enough experience????

Who knows. Sucks for him though.

I heard that when you crack you should have a few shots of Jack and a couple of beers. And then drink a bunch of jolt right before the race.

(stupid F'in Flandis... I'm still in mourning over the sport)
