Stolen from the CBR blog:
I’m a huge fan of people fixing their own problems, especially grown f*cking men who pay taxes and vote. I don’t have time to listen to men complain and then subsequently listen to men explain. The way a racer beats another racer is the way Ryan Barrett and Jamie Paolinetti do it….ride at 34mph until the racer can’t even draft and then the racer drops their wheel. Crappy/douchebag racers hook wheels, brake check, bumps bars with lesser experienced racers, and take drafting riders into cones/barricades/curbs. The better rider just rides them off their wheel with brute strength & speed…strange concept, huh?
For every one Ryan there are three dozen non-Ryans: it sux, but that’s just the way it is these days-more negative racing than positive racing & sportsmanship is out the window. I will do what I can to keep this corner of the world clean, and for the most part, the race at Velo Allegro ran great and without a hitch.
I don’t think Chris reads the blog, but thanks for the ego pump all the same!
