Santa Rosa Crit
This is a downtown affair that is ALWAYS hot and humid and a complete sufferfest. For me, it's a much harder heat to handle than that central valley dry heat. Santa Rosa seems to make me pinata more than any other place. Smog, redneck gunracks and furnaced road i can handle, it's just like home. But microwaved boilers in the north bay? ... they kill.
Well, i didn't get to see any of the racing out there this year, but i sho'nuff was psyched to hear that Patella won it with some style. Yeah, she's a bit of a saucy dish that can whip out the trash talk about 12 times better then her boy, RKillit ... but, that's not a bad thing, in my book. Good win for the VAC chicks. This could be a good summer for them. I think they'll do well even though they've been racing full-guns from February on.
More tough girls.
And ~ speaking of trash talk, the only thing i'd heard about the boy's prosey race in Santa Rosa was reading some shittalk from that prettyboy of a yester-decade superstar, Disco-Geezer McKinley.
"The race had moments of fastness but I was shocked more by the moments of slowness. At the risk of sounding like an old fart, I can't recall any flat dreamer crit EVER dropping below 24mph, especially with $2500 on the line, but this one did."
bwaahahaa ... takin' the belt to the youngsters like only an old Dreamer can.
i just love that kind of sass.
apparently young Uthman of the local NorCal RhVillians squad and grizzle-me-Sacto-Sayers (BMC yayhoo) were off late in a break and there may or may not have been agreements on who was fried and who would or wouldn't sprint.
the point is ... when you've been at the top of the domestic doggie-pile for a decade, you don't need to go yelling and douche'ing out on the kid if he sprints you and you think he shouldn't have.
act with some fukking class. yeah, be pissed about it if the kid stabbed you one. Be pissed and go up and tell him what he did wrong and learn him a thing 'or two about bike riding as you see it - but don't holler and squeal about like a stuck pig in public, which apparently is what reports have saying he did. that's just embarrasing.
But, maybe they're all wrong and maybe Sayers was all pro about it and didn't go all bitchy mcMoaner in front of everyone about losing a crit to a kid who just started seeing pubes a few months ago.
gawd, i loves me some shittalk.
