Sometimes money can't buy happiness

or can it?

Snowball Crit, Someplace Too Far to Drive, Virginia.

wheels = $2,000 plus?
frame = $1,000 plus?
srm = $2,000 plus

Cat 5 helmet swagger includes non fitting non matching helmet leads me to ask quetions...

Why is helmet tilting sideways? Is he grimacing or smiling? Is he off the front or back? Why am I such a dick? He-Man or Thundercat? Pepsi or Coke? Ding or Dong? Am I getting off topic..again? Where are my meds?

Velonews advertising department should write a personalized letter thanking him for his purchases. Wow.

Not sure when this pic was taken, but the aforementioned rider is no longer a Cat 5 and well on his way to being a cat 1!

just his helmet is cat 5.

He's most likely off the front knowing that guy. Monster.

Greg said...

he's wearing it like a fedora.

the white gloves is what does it for me.

a Cervelo S2 frame is definitely more than 1K.

Yeah, Dr W is more than likely off the front in a solo break pushing out 550 watts. Yeah, my helmet would be twisting to the side too.

speaking of monsters...we think we see a mini yeti on a bike here:

OK, I have my first two road races ever coming up in the next few weeks, wonder if I will end up on this site...as a mountain biker attempting road crits, I fully expect to be dropped.

Awesome I was scrolling down saying "please dont be me, please dont be me." Sigh. Great site keep it up. btw it was only 360w and I was firmly planted in no mans land between the break and the field. Marc

I would like to invite "dropped" to the next race with the aforementioned rider and see how well he would fair in a break with him, two up style...

Expending this kind of energy on throttling peeps through a blog means you either have a tiny penis, or you're just weak in the saddle...but keep on getting on man. Whatever floats your boat (insert snicker here).

Oh yeah, you forgot the electronic Dura Ace
