Can't you short people sit up a bit so us normal sized people can get a draft?  So selfish.

There's a guy I ride with who is like 5'2". I hate when he's behind me in pacelines. He pulls in front of me, I get no draft, and then he always pulls annoyingly hard. Not smooth. For me it's like taking a pull, then taking a 2nd harder pull.

The three photos below are taken by Jim Danvers. Check out the rest of his pictures from the Horby Hills Kermis, put on by the Corning/Notubes race team at Jim Danvers Photography.

Somewhere on the muddy course in lap 4 when I was trying to catch the ladies again after riding 1.5 miles on a flat and getting a wheel change. Check out the mud on the down tube:

and a close up of the results - I was done and talking to grumpy before his start:

That picture of Grumpy on the Ridley is just classic.

which race is this?


also, wear gloves when you race bro.
You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

Sadly this is bike racing and not everyone gets a pony.

Herbie is looking svelter than I remember him.  Extra training is paying off I guess.

Grumpy is also looking badass in the miserable conditions.

Black hills circuit race in March. I forgot to bring any gloves. It was in the low 40s. My hands were cold.
