Cycling Tip

Get pissed for the right reasons. Cyclist get pissed. Make sure it is the right reason. For example. You just rode the Tourmalet, along with 100 miles and three other climbs and the Presidents is blocking your way to get want you need. Right to get pissed. Yes.

We push ourselves hard, there is not time to waste, for things that unnecessarily slow you.

Another example I wrecked with a car. I knew it was my fault, not smart riding. No right to get pissed, be sorry and glad you are alright. No right to get pissed.

I think the natural hormones give you some edge. The Unnaturally derived ones throw people over the top, don't do that. Staying cool is very important. And steriods are def not cool, unless you are dying some sick disease.

Don't expect patience with someone whose body is depleted. And Unecessary anger beware. Why are drivers mad and why do they go fast only to slow down. must just like burn gas. Cool, maybe if you have a straight away and miles of freedom but during local rush hour, very un.


No helmet either one nothing to be proud of. Yesterday sweeping left side of
big pickup as we got the green he makes his left, I am on in a blind spot on his right stampin on the pedals and he turns a quick right into the gas station. I couldn't tell if he
signaled or not from where I was. stuck, neck and shoulders out and brunted
it off his door and mirror. We both stop. Nice guy. I wasn't hurt, I was more concern that my wheel in tack, was just leaving WC. Dude was worried he killed me. I said no my fault, shouldn't been assuming you were going straigt. shooks hands and parted ways. Glad he didn't care
Hope I didn't dent the door too bad.

This morning wizzing traffic on 322. I am on the shoulder start heading up hill
after the power station going to WC. Out of the saddle head focued about15 feet
out, going about 20 look up and a fucking metal work road sign right in front of me (
I saw it yesterday late too but no cars were coming) no where to go. cars in
sucession and no way around the sign. Barreled right into it. took it down and
myself too. Twisted the ankle and brushed the elbow on something. Cars
must of had a good laugh. I hit the fucking thing like a bowling pin. Picked up
the bike and the fucking shifter is fucking skipping. God dam.

Into the real world

with some photos..
Lots of good stuff along the bay. Plenty more pics


why else attack at that point at least hold up until you see him on his bike. He was scared because he got dropped, lacksa little bit of class in my book. We will see what happens on thursday . One last chace for glory.

But I like this kinda stuf the best

Footage from Whistler, BC

The North.

I like it. Not sure so many tour de france riders would agree. Where else can you see a peloton shattered, on flat roads. Thor's bitterness came thru, he didn't work one pull that I saw. Cancellara, drove the lead almost the entire way, with Evans putting in some work too. Not sure how Andy got thru with the big boys but nice ride for him. Too bad his brother really took a hard fall, and looks to be out. That will really hurt the team's overall contention. It is a little problematic to see two contenders out within two days. I doubt we will see these roads in a tour for a long time. But man it was good to watch today.

Yesterday's coverage was spotty, Never really had good footage, but the road must have been like black ice. Verses manages to cram in more commercial footage than race coverage. Yeah, American mainstream is awful, but what the heck can we do but hope for intelligent companies to make changes.

Not sure how Lance got dropped on sector 5. He did manage a very strong pull on sector 7. Those cobbles are definitely not for the skinny climbers. Boxed rims and 28 were in order. Fabian is the man. My long shot hope for GC was Vande Velde, Now I guess I can hope for Evan's or Andy and still would be exciting to see Lance make a miracle. Alberto did ride well especially on the cobbles, why does Vino drop his man. So much for his early Statement. Maybe he didn't see his man dropped, but there were only 5 guys in that group.
