Douchebag of the Week

It's been a long time since we had a 'douchebag of the week.' We'll probably have more as the Tour de France unfolds and new doping allegations come forth. Don't even get us started on Ricco right now. Another level.

The MABRA list had a golden nugget of douchebaggery. Dan posts:


Are there any steps that can be taken when a race-promoter does not provide the results to USA cycling and does not respond to emails asking why not?
It sucks to pay money for race registration, finish well and not have the results acknowledged on USA cycling. 
Anyone have any luck contacting USA cycling in these situations?
The race in question was the Bryan Park Circuit Race on Saturday June 16th.
Thanks,
Dan

Rather than complaining about your results you should be kissing the feet of the promoter, the usacycling officials and me for making local cycling awesome. The promoter is probably busy with his day-job, maybe his family, and other things that aren't related to cycling. YGD agrees that it is awesome to have results posted on USA Cycling the evening or day after the race but it shouldn't be expected. Have you ever tried to submit a spreadsheet to USA Cycling after a race. It's rocket surgery.  Most promoters aren't doing this full-time and it's basically a volunteer gig that MIGHT put some funds in their team's coffers. Get over it and buy a t shirt from us...we have them in pink now.  Also, triple spaced on your rebuttal. Well done.
