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]

- too much smoke again today so no ride, but this whole iban mayo second B sample test fishing expediton by the UCI has chapped my hide, urgh, any way, read on and also check out the article on BKW about iban.

riders have doped in cycling for years, the UCI looked the other way for years, now that same system is trying to combat doping [cheating], than we all wonder why it is not working. how difficult is it to too write a solid, clear, simple set of rules [laws] and than operate by those procedures? i guess you can not expect much from an organization that is with in the EUSSR auspices. it is simple, are you listening UCI / WADA, all we want is to know the rules so we can follow them and we expect you to follow them also. a A/B positive should be positive and an A/B negitive should be negitive and than get on with it.

right now the UCI operates like a bad step-mom, i don't trust you, cause your not mine, we will find the cheats and if we can't find the cheats, we will make up something so you are a cheat, and we will not support any of the clean members or try to advocate for the sport in the public eye, why you ask, cause you are all a dirty cheat no matter what and finding cheats sells papers, so shut up and give me fluid so we can find something.

control the cheats and support the others, cause this is the worlds greatest sport, should be the UCI motto.

back on the powercranks today, i headed out for some quality time on the bike, only to be overwhelmed by the blowing smoke from the local fires up north. i got about 15min from home this afternoon and desided it was better for my health to return home, so i got in 30min of quality powercranking time.

now go ride
