• Menlo Crit … get ready to be lovingly heckled

    menlos.jpgwell … i dunno what got into them, but the VeloGirls and LLLowne have agreed to let me wax ignoramus all over their mic this March 8th for the Tri-Flow Menlo Park Grand Prix.

    Check the {{LINK}} to pre-reg, folks. The more who pre-reg, the easier it makes it on the volunteers who run the paperwork behind the scenes. So, bust out the plastic and get on it, yo.

    Now, i’m sure there’ll be a few comments about how buck-nasty my voice is and how my vocab usually centers around verbs and adjectives of the lovin’s sort … and well, what can i say ~ i’m a simple man.

    It’s not that i’m a sex-aholic, or anything. but … i mean, why pass up a chance to go volcanic every once in awhile.

    – – –

    momenlo.jpgThe Menlo course does have a few tricks to it … parked cars (hey, it’s the city folks) andthat pottyhole in turn 2 that will need to be coned off …

    but, overall – it’s close, it’s convenient, and the VGirls put on one hell of a party.

    I’m psyched to be announcing their race and they’ve even given me a few hundred bucks in discretionary PRIMES to give out during the day. ahhhhh yeah … cha’ching to the suffering, baby!

    See ya’ll out there.

      hey! in addition to the $$$ we’re already throwing down for primes, for every field we sell out in pre-reg, we’ll up it by another $50. how’s that for shits and giggles?

      The race of Infinite Botts’ Dots.

      Hope they bring the truck onto the course again this year. I actually think that made it safer…kept people from falling asleep.

      I’ll see what I can do about reserving a dump truck again and we just installed a fresh set of botts dots.

      Yeee haw! I might need to attack just so I can hear Chaaattty-box! screeched over the PA :)

      seigle – come on out and school the E3’s…we encourage that sort of thing. A couple of the W2’s made a good show of that last year.

      Amanda, there’s a long back-story there regarding CVC and their events on the same dates. We agreed not to have elite fields at our race, but as Chatty said, jump in with the E3s and you’ll have a great race. And we’ll definitely have elite fields at Foster City in July.

      instead of racing with them 3’s, how about doing a nice long training ride in the morning – and then come over to Menlo to ride in the 35+1/2/3?

      that’s a field that’s a bit safer, but also faster. better, safer training.


      any p1/2 women who don’t want to race that day, do a training ride and then come over and join me on the mic. interviews are always appreciated … and bring a beverage. and make fun of me.

      why the dump truck? I have a couple available…..

      Dumptruck references are about last year when a large tractor trailor rig was parked between turns 3 and 4, making the road a bit narrower.

      I think the downtown Santa Rosa Crit has way more bots dots. That race has large rectangular grids of them right before the left hander! Someone on the Santa Rosa city council must have an interest in a bots dots company. :-)

      Oh Frack Darn it. I’m in school on Saturday. I’d come just to hear the wax ignoramous… stooopid school. Have fun out there!

      More $$$ for selling out? That’s enough to make me giggle until I shit! Ha, ha

      Bring on the heckling…this 6’9″ bearded wookie is easy to spot and make fun of :)

      todd, consider yourself on the A-list for hecklins, baby.

      and you better be bringing up a solid crew o’ teamSanJose’rs up to Menlo. i’m lovin’ those new kits and want to see a good number of them bustin’ manjuice up and down the streets of Menlo.

      I’ve been tempted to do the 35+ if they’ll let me and my youthful good looks in there…

      Discretionary primes…I’m thinking ’bout some ‘girls, girls, girls’ primes in the later races…

    16. March 3, 2008 at

      Dude, if by some miracle I make a move off the front…PUHLEEZ tell me you’ll shout out something artistic about “Boner” leading the field. K?

    17. March 3, 2008 at

      oh hell yes i will…
      never pass up a chance to say ‘boner’ in public, i say.

    18. March 3, 2008 at

      hey, Panda! if nothing else, I think we need to give a call-up to all the girls, girls, girls racing in the men’s races……

      can’t wait to see you!

      Good to hear that you’ll be there hermano. I’ll be there too, and lucky me’ll be unlikely to miss a word pouring out of your mouth.
