after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen... [anonymous comments are lame, cowboy up and put a name or start a blog]

[great ride vino, we miss you at t-mobile]

calm down people, he is just a bike racer with panache and, well, someone else's blood. i am going to go out on a limb and say why should his team suffer, he did it, it is not like the president of kaskhstan stood there holding the tube while the team doctor injected the 'vitamins and vino laid there getting a massage, all the while at the next hotel dining room table the whole team ate and said only 5ml more vino than you can have a bowl of pasta and some steak. the staff, coaches and other riders deserve a chance to f_ck up on their own or not, just like he did. focus people, the real action is the classic dual between rasmussen and contador, what a spectacle, truly great racing. or how rasmussen's simple black colnago is just a freaking understated statement of cool. or how some young buck on a conti team is turning the polka dot jersey competition, into one. or the simple pleasure of watching the other 160 riders puke their guts out trying for their team.

the jabber on tomorrows guys in black ride will go something like this "i will miss your attacking style vino, now don't whine like a little bitch any more about not being able to ride in the 2006 tour or the rest of this one, you toe head little prick [all the while vino is crushing me up some climb]. NOW GO RIDE.
