I tell it how it is
Sunday, August 29, 2010 - Race Reports
They say history is written by the winner. Since neither Jesse nor Phil have blogs, I will dictate what is written about the 4 lap, 100 mile, Winters Road Race 2010.

An 8 person break separated early from a well motivated, far from lazy, out for blood, peloton. The break, containing one from each team, except two from Cal Giant, gained a maximum of 10 minutes before it reached the finish line.

The break splintered over the last 40 miles and only 3 came to the line together. The finishing order was Jesse, Phil, Paul.

From a more personal perspective, I had fun riding the breakaway. I followed my prerace plan of riding the third lap hard with the intention of suffering a bit after that. The only problem was the third lap hard riding was mediocre and the 4th lap suffering was extreme.

I have one question to ask. To whom was the suggested $3 parking donation? A wealthy land owner, your mom? I have nothing against donating, but just straight up asking for money is for homeless people and your friends.

Ok so <i>"pardon me, but do you write a popular swiss cycling blog? any blog? Ok, now is there a .ch CNAME that points to the .com equivalent? Thought so!"</i> probably would have caught me off guard too...and after some thought, maybe just <i>"Hi Paul, love the blog, good luck today!"</i> would have been better. Live and learn.

The $3 parking was the Mariani Nut folks helping the Winters schools raise some money. I think they ended up raising about $300 for the kids...
