Snells tacky ...

F-bomb, snot-rocket, shit-pickle!!!

what is up with people, sometimes?

- - -

So, around the noon break in between race waves ~ some "bleep" threw down tacks on the road. It caused a few dozen flats out there for the racers, ending days in frustration and confusion.

Why can't we all just get along?

Drive a few hours, pay your money, and then get your day of fun and competition ruined by some wad who can't give up "his" roads for a day.

The Cat 3 women's race was pretty hardcore. On lap 3 a break of 5 went up the road with the sCruz's Natasha Perry, 2 CRC ladies, and a couple of others I couldn't identify. They saw the gap created and put their heads down to hammer it home.

The flats and hard riding before then had already diminshed the field, but the remaining riders tried to organize a chase. But, you've got to get everyone on board for something like that.

The break stuck and it was a long, hard sprint with Perry taking a close one over the CRC riders. Good race.

In the p1/2 men's race, Eric Wohlberg kept trying to match form of the ToC boys by going ballistic all day long. For the first couple laps Wohlberg and CalGiant's AJM were off the front by a handful of seconds. The field blasted it hard to bring them back. But, with huge chunks of riders flatting out of the race ... chasing was limited in duration and coordination.

Late in the race, a break did get away though. CalGiant had strongman Hunt and another rider there to drive it for their sprinter, Vigus. An Easton and Lombardi rider latched on with the ever-ominous presence of Wohlberg rounding out the move.

Here's some vid of them forming the nastiness ... you'll hear me give a shout to JunkaDonk to get his ass across.

Poor bastard.

i can't help but think that the afternoon racers were the victims of what the tack throwers might have considered retalliation for the poor behavior of the morning racers.

still no excuse for that shit, though.

Word has it a CHP picked up some tacks in his wheel, so there will be an investigation...

At least it was a gorgeous day to be stuck with flats...as long as it wasn't near the bees.

Whats up with the haters? We were warned about tacks on the road during the AIDS/Life Cycle last year. Guess in '05 a few ingnorant morons thought that was the best way to say eff U to people with AIDS.
