Just so all of you–my dearest friends–know, I am now unemployed. A., the rockstar that she is made me see that I needed to ply my trade elsewhere. I’m thinking about open sourcing this employment search.

how not to make friends in the peloton

Filed under: VeloFietsen — quietglow @ 1:59 pm

the current flap in the peloton, in case you’ve missed it, is what exactly ol’ theo bos is doing to the leader of the tour of turkey at 3:45 in this vid

here’s my read and it helps to freeze frame at 3:42 to see this:

theo is going into those barriers at 30mph and he knows it — he knows his wreck in inevitable. he’s scared or pissed or some combo and he grabs whomever is next to him in anger/spite/adrenaline.

or he just decided to take the dude out. in any case, that dude needs to switch sports cause I forsee people in front of him are going to suddenly have a very difficult time holding onto their water bottles and stuff.

I was going to write something, but this really does sum it up. That was a beautiful and inspiring race today.

Big congrats to Mr. Boonen.

Here’s a good summary.

The money quote, from Husovd about his heart wrenching crash at just the wrong time:

“I attacked on the Arbre and I didn’t even know Tom was on my wheel. Without this stupid crash, I would have arrived with him to the velodrome and I think I would have the sprint,” Hushovd said.

“If I lose a sprint it’s because someone is stronger than me. You never know, but to lose the chance because of this stupid crash is hard. It will be hard to forget.”

Yeah, I’ll bet. As hard as he went down, it was astounding to see him get back on the bike and chase up for third. These dudes are made of freakin iron.
