short shot of geezer juice

I really don't like Cherry Pie (slut metal bands excluded, of course).

- - -

With only da'PAB, Pasconator, and me on the start line ... i knew we were going to be in for a world of hurt. And, sho'nuff ~ off the front went an early break that looked doomed for us. Spine had 3 in it, a Disco's Nolan and Laberge, leaneyReaney of the Giant Starburries, SteveGargantuous of StanleyMorgan, and EMC's Nat Parks.

That pretty much sucked for us.

So, we took turns smashing the pack in the face with hard accelerations or long pulls. I was not having a good time. Luckily there were lots of dudes willing to put a stake in the break and the gap was finally covered.

ick.

For the duration of the race, there would be strong hits from many different riders. I can't tell you how uncomfortable I was. These fukking Geezer squads are super organized and entirely too motivated to train and whoop on each other. In the end, Laberge won it with a fair bit of class. He's pert near unbeatable in that sprint unless he throws his hands up too early ;)

"who lost the p/1/2 race 2 yrs ago by celebrating too early"

I really don't like Cherry Pie...

The food or the race? Sour cherries perhaps? ;)

Thanks for the great re-por-tage.

I was at cherry pie and I didn't hear that trivia question, FFS. Nobody guessed it? Hmmpf. No respect.

FYI- He didn't lose because he threw his hands. I was coming around him anyway. Throwing his hands up was a formality...
