A little something to tide you over...

when not racing...
Cyclists are just dorky enough that I could actually believe this happening. Maybe they are all on their way to have a machinist make custom titanium replacements for every bolt on their bikes.
Maybe they are in a hurry to get to a low speed wind tunnel.
Maybe there is a sale on gram scales... Maybe you can think of a funny cyclist quirk for the "comments" page.

The "Mystery Cyclist" picture in my previous post is better known for his road cycling career than his MTB roots. He is a successful racer on a Pro Tour level team.

I will get pictures and video together for a NORBA #2 race report ASAP...

Danielson! That's who it is. I knew I had seen the pic before...

If that's Danielson, was he fresh off another victory? Hincapie used to win the junior races, switch his rear wheel for one with a 12 (restricted gearing for jrs.), and place in the 1-2 race, you know, just for kicks.

This comment has been edited by the author/dictator of this blog because the commentor seemed to be under the MISTAKEN impression that this is a democracy and failed to show proper respect to the Supreme Dictator/Male Supermodel of this blog universe by:
A: Demeaning a picture of John looking all "Rico Suave" that is clearly the BEst-Ever-Raddest Media Event (a picture that shall be referred to as "BE.E.R. M.E." from now on) to ever happen in this or any other universe.
Once again Thump, you are hereby placed "On Thin Ice" and if you repeatedly trespass against BE.E.R. M.E. or the Supreme Dictator/Male Supermodel you will answer to my "Ping-Pong Enforcer" who may or may not let you win.

OHHHHH, I'm SORRY... The answer we were looking for was TOM Danielson.
Better luck next time, and thanks for playing.

...maybe they just flicked that guy trying to 'bridge the gap' because he asked one of them for a good blood doctor...

thump said...

The name of the good blood doctor would be Michele Ferrari.

did you race greenbrier?

Lyle said...

No Qwad, didn't race Greenbriar. I live in California, just a couple hours away from NORBA #2 so I raced that instead.
I will post a race report soon.
