Wes won the MABRA and will likely come in 2nd in the MAC. Bad Andy is going to win the MAC. I don't have anything against Bad Andy, but he hasn't won one MAC race. This, to me, is not a champion. Wes won the MAC in 2006 without winning a race either so I am not pointing fingers here, I just wanted some thoughts on this.
I know I have no room for input on these matters since I don't race bikes and I have never won any athletic competition. OK to be fair, I did win the sit up contest in gymnastics at the YMCA in 1984, but I cheated - only because the prize was Rain-Blow gum and gum was strictly prohibited in my house. I can still taste that gum. The yellow one with red spots on it....
Does it seem weird to crown a champion who doesn't win?

I have objectifying male cyclists since the year 2000 when I learned of their existence. I thought I was a freak, I didn’t know of any other girls like me who cared about cyclists without actually being a competitive cyclist. I am having my moment in the No Rain video when the little girl comes across all the other little bumble bees dancing in the field (in case you missed the 90’s click here)
So what does this mean to you, reader? Well, I hope through this discovery that BDIPC will evaluate my dossier of cyclo-cross riders in the mid-atlantic on her website. Before you get too excited know 2 things (1) I had to call my mom to ask her how to spell dossier and (2) Said dossier does not currently exist.
Details will be forthcoming if I can broker a deal, I don’t have high hopes at this time because as you can see she is a very busy person who is kicking ass on a pretty big scale.

The protesters were all old white affluent looking people. They were reading the bible and screaming awful things. One man was smoking and said "join us sister". I politely said "fuck off".
Having been a very scared young girl in a family way, my heart went out to people in this situation. I knew I could never have an abortion. That is easy decision when you come from a family that is supportive and accepting and in an economic position to absorb another family member. Most young girls in that situation aren't so fortunate. There is no good option for some. The thing that really got me fired up was these angry Bible beaters and their hate.
Well at any rate I had enough adrenaline to finish my run strong and ran in to the boys on the way home.

We have this neighborhood happy hour on Friday night and I was trying to explain where Wes was, what cross is, etc. When you say it out loud though it really is funny. "You ride a bike and jump over things"...."Yes, there is a race 5 miles away this weekend but he drove 10 hours to get points"... "points are important so you get a good position at nationals".... "no you don't get money for nationals"..."no it isn't anything at all like Lance Armstrong". For the most part, people don't get it - most adults spend their weekends washing cars, weeding, and other pointless shit.
Did you see that someone threw a hot dog at Tiger this weekend? Ironic, he is usually the one throwing the wiener around.
