Don't worry Mike. When I blog about the race, I'll write it as a moral victory. That's just as good, right?

Wasn't this picture taken AFTER the finish line?

caption contests pics aren't usually droppage pics. Getting dropped speaks for itself.

Tell me again why you named our 'cross frame "Hot Buns"

Racer on left: "See, when you turn you can either counter-steer or do your leg like this."
Racer on right: "What in hell does that have to do with both of us getting our asses dropped?"
Racer on left: "Ummm... I was trying to change the subject."

Dude, I totally could have stayed in the field if you hadn't counter attacked so hard.

Greg Grosicki said...

Got any beer in either of those bottles?

"Hey nice borderline triathlete socks!"

Maybe we should buy us some zipp wheels and put some November stickers on them.

Is it November yet?

Dave Kirkpatrick said...

Come on people we're giving prizes for this stuff, step it up.

Here are a few to start you off:

"Oh well, only 4 more months until cross"
"Man I should have used more DZ Nuts"
"Nice tan, you freak"
"Good thing Paul still hangs out with us and makes us look good"
"That wasn't very smart racing"
"I kept waiting for the horse!"
"Next time, deeper wheels"
"If we got dropped after the finish does it count? If so we're screwed"

"My power meter said I was winning, I don't know what happened"

Greg said...

Rider 1 - "Man, all those guys that beat us are idiots, they obviously don't know the first thing about bike racing."

Rider 2 - "Yeah, they need to learn to race smart like us"

"Will you take a look at this Rash?"

Side note... I love all the anonymous posts! How are you going to win if no one knows who you are? They all sucked anyway...

Look how close of a shave I got with my wife's Venus razor!

"It's easier to off-gas if you lift your leg out a little like this."

we totally tricked these guys into free advertising by getting dropped.

Dude....my left nut just fell off the edge of the chamois and it's rubbing on my thigh skin.

irishjoyboy said...

when you forget to write down his coach specified wattage on your top tube for the ride you get lazy.
When you get lazy, you talk other riders into being lazy with you.
When other riders get lazy they get dropped.
When you get dropped, you get made fun of and appear online for others to mock you for free advertising!
If your November Bicycles you love you got dropped and free advertising!

Told you not to sport the pink bar tape and tires today!

Unknown said...

Your wife let you race her bike?

"Dude! I just tried to fart but got a little more with it...can you see the stain on my shorts?"

Dave Kirkpatrick said...

Pretty much. Bar tape left over from October (breast cancer awareness) and borrowed the wife's race wheel since I haven't got time to build a set for myself just now. Personally I think it's a pretty hot look for me.

Of course, this all implies that my wife rides and races, which she does, which is also a pretty good look for me.

Who would have thought we were so popular with 10-year-old boys? We should have named one of our bikes the Squarepants.

Bart said...

you say she had three nipples???

Hey, weren't there a bunch of other riders a minute ago?!

franko said...

I can live with a 1:1 'race position to dollar spent on bike' ratio.

BillG said...

I KNEW I should have gone with the 11-28...

antbream said...

Beginning to think the new kit's front pocket wasn't such a good idea......

antbream said...

My legs are really smooth.....here, touch my knee

MojoPete said...

Was Mount Joy May 2nd or June 2nd?

Not sure but we have 3 laps left and I'm in second place - now pull!

Michael said...

"Is this the break?"

graham said...

be honest, does this saddle make my butt look big?

Randy said...

dude, no way I'm gonna Strava that.

Brent Harris said...

Maybe we SHOULD sponsor someone...

Yes Man said...
