Hot/Not Hot


Hot
1. Greg Lemond sightings: Pictured above, with Jim Johnson (Swanson Bros uncle) last Saturday.
2. 2008 Track Scratch Race Champs: Brain Crosby/Linzilla Hamilton
3. Aliens exist: that explains Super-Rookie
4. Peter Schweich: 1st night as Cat 2 on track, wins Tempo Race and Miss-n-Out (I had already eliminated Crosby earlier in the missnout)
5. Double Race Weekend: Saturday: Omnium Event at the track, Sunday: State Crit @ the Capitol Building in St. Paul

Not
1. Tour de France: In Yellow Yoda is, hmmmm...
2. Masters 35+ CX riders: they all need Sastre's binky
3. Track officiating: blind in one eye, can't see out of the other (according to Big Dave, Pederson and others, I nipped Brain, but Crosby has protected rider status, they couldn't eliminate him early in the race so they let him stay in)
4. Bike Thiefs: Goldmember and this one...
5. Cancelled Bloated Military Expenditures
6. Late Addition: State Championship Scratch Race: schedule posting not clear.

see "Note Tonight's races will include the men's and women's state championship scratch race"

It was a good race, Dan Casper was in the field, Dale Sedgwick, the usual speed fix suspects, but no super-rookie, no taint, no hanz/franz, no timmer, no hanna , no pattycakes, no joe johnson...

timmer said...

note, it doesn't designate a category and the only category doing a scratch was the cat 3. boo! not hot

Tenacious T said...

Yes, I'm sure my incredible endurance skills were missed in that 60-lap race.

Pete said...

I'm hot.

timmer good point, post edited...

Pete,
I can't vouch for your hotness unless you come to the track. So for now, it's kind of like the aliens, we think you're hot, but no recent sightings... Donimater was there last night, he's hot...

timmer said...

crosby would have won regardless but that's my favorite event!
next year

timmer said...

when is retro jersey night?.. i found a good kit/strip/uniform

Frye said...

I didn't know about the Championship race until I listened to the hotline on the way.

Note to self - listen to the hotline for more than just cancellations.

SickBoy said...

it's a new event - it's the 'Unknown State Championship' and will probably be held a few more times between now and the end of the year....

Frye said...

That's your most intelligent comment ever Sickboy!
