laced

This is why i think Disco is a bunch of mercenary pukes:

Japan Cup

1 Riccardo Riccò (Ita) Saunier Duval-Prodir
2 Ruggero Marzoli (Ita) Lampre-Fondital
3 Vladimir Gusev (Rus) Discovery Channel
4 Stijn Devolder (Bel) Discovery Channel>


... that's right, in a 4-up break - they got 3rd and 4th.

why?

because those europins ride like 2 year-olds fighting over the last gumdrop. Anybody remember Danielson getting left by 3 of his teammates on an opening mountain stage? What about that little race called Paris-Roubiax (pick a year)? And how about Flanders when Hoste worked with Boonen when Hincapie is just behind?

Now, I'm no fan of Hincapie - but the guy does play good as the teammate. I guess he cashed in his payback at the US Pro Champys with buttboy Levi dragging his ass to the line to beat poor old Bajadali.

... whatever. they get what they deserve.

On the way to work today - came across some chick riding flat out in the 53x13. I don't think she even knew she had shifters (downtube ver.1983). The drivetrain wasn't in all that bad of condition, though. No grinding, no rust ... and no shifting, ever. She just had her big 'ole backpack on, head down, helmet on - bent over the bars pushing 350w ... forever.

cadence = 17.

right on.

i'm hoping el Furioso will take over camera duties for me again this weekend at WatsonVile. His vid shots last week were the only ones not "shacky" and swimming through goop. I plan on leaving him at least 8 minutes of camera time to do his worst as I do my best to get out and race against the wee-boys on Sunday.

If we can get the course solidly marked on Saturday and not leave much to do race morning, maybe I'll be able to stay off my feet enough to throw on a race number. We'll see.

Thing is, i'm really interested to ride this course. I mean, that runnup is going to be pure hell ... but, I'm jonesin' to see how the other parts of the course ride.


blahblahblah

53-13 with a cadence of 17......

that is my type of woman, if we were tight you would have gotten me a number......

I was expecting to see a lil something about Basso getting off. No worries, I will cover it for you....

you can count on me.

if i can convince myself to stick around down there all day.

run ups = ugh.

We will have a "beer short cut" near the top, you have to guzzle a whole beer to bypass the out and back pit of dispair.

Ok,ok..thats just a rumor.

vanderhoof, its an idea though. I think we need to talk this over a case of Fat Tire...

careful, brent.

you're dangling a t-bone in front of a lion there.

Disco-very is so very overrated...a team incapable of anything but marketing something.

junkadonk: if i see her again, i'll scribble your blog address on the plumber's crack she had going on being so bent over the bars.

... and Basso belongs on Disco.

the lot of 'em.

vdawg: if you stick around, the cam's yours. but, that's a long drive, so i'd understand.

gonna be a shyte-shacky vid w/o you though.

brenty: just one beer?

hell, that's not even a twelver per race?

... man, i'd be winnin' that one.

daX: i was just disgusted with how Leipheimer and Hincapie rode against Bajadali. Baji just kept the gas on and pedaled every ounce for the win, even with those two cunts joined at the lips.

big brass balls.

BritBaldwin: ... save me a seat for le'Tour. Disco and the rest of the EuroPoofters are all on the ugly side of Survivor rejects ... but it's still the best show in town.
