Hangover September 17, 2012

Mon, 09/17/2012 - 11:04am by schmalz

 I must admit that I have grown accustomed to not having to scour the internet on Monday mornings for snippets and clues to the athletic achievement of the past two days, and when I say I've grown accustomed to it, I mean that I despise looking up results for racers that aren't me. But there are paying subscribers to keep happy (I crack myself up sometimes), so I shall recap the weekend's accomplishments.

At the Tour of the Adirondacks, most of the racing and placing was done by non-NYC area people, saving me the trouble of listing them by names, Parker Chea of Star Track was the lone racers to represent NYC on the podiums up there, with second place in the junior 14-15 race. Results are here.

At the inaugural White Plains Downtown Criterium, Eneas Freyre of Target Training won the pro/1/2/3 race. Caryl Gale of Wonder Wheels won the women's race. Tom Dudzik of the Farm Team won the cat 3/4 race. Billy Wherley won the cat 5 race. Results are here.

Meanwhile in Brooklyn, the Mangoseed Graveyard series is bouncing along, with Phil Penman of BH/Comedy Central winning the cat 1/2/3 race. This is after he set the fastest time at the Lake Noxamixon time trial the day before in Quakertown, Pa.

cycling ever clean..
By: Flatty flatser
Tue, 09/18/2012 - 6:43pm

The ever lasting question 'will cycling ever be clean'. I do not know how much you know about Dr Fuentes, the famous Spanish doctor. Anyway, does not really matter, what does matter is that it where not just cyclist on his 'patient' list. Rumor has that the Real Madrid soccer squat was among his clientele, just like various high profile tennis players. The only athletes ever to see the negative consequences of this investigation have not been the rich and powerfull footballclubs or tennis players... but the cyclist ... Guess why?

Tyler Hamilton's Book
By: David Blume
Tue, 09/18/2012 - 6:35pm

I just finished reading 'The Secret Race' and highly recommend to anyone with interest in professional cycling, particularly if you followed it during the Armstrong Tour de France years. It does a great job explaining how racers go about doping and avoid detection.

It also paints quite a picture of Armstrong. While, ever story has two (if not three or more sides) even if its 50% accurate, he is a real piece of work.

Its difficult to come away from this read and believe that cycling (particularly stage racing) is really clean, or will be any time in the foreseeable future. It also makes me believe (as Ashenden goes on record again today contending) that the professional cycling governing bodies (UCI most notable among them) are corrupt to the core. Finally, it amazes me how Armstrong somehow found his way to become so powerful. He is very clever, and in a very dangerous way.

Also, unrelated except for leg shaving, Eneas Freyre?! I'm having flashbacks to the Kissena Pro Team!

I dunno, I thought cat4forever had a couple funny posts, though nothing as funny as someone calling themselves "dopers suck" defending Eustice. Certainly nothing close to as funny as comparing someone to DA over their contrarian message board posts.

I'm going to call a tie and ask it to be broken by dopers suck and Eustice slapping each other around with the hot mops.

Believe me, I could. I have dealt with John personally. He is so lucky I didn't go hardcore on him. Well, gloves are off now because he gave me the reasons to judge him as a liar and a sleezy person. He can't be trusted. He will get it. No one's fault except he himself.....

Nothing on Bucks County Classic (old Univest)? The local guys got killed but it was a super hard course. 7,500 climbing - 100 miles. Great race to watch. Hopefully it becomes more popular.

By: Eric Ragot
Mon, 09/17/2012 - 8:37pm

An automatic upgrade after two wins requires, as I read the guidelines, 40 person fields (of Cat 2's). However, if anyone likes, Randy Inglis (ringlis@usacycling.org) is the guy who does Cat 1 upgrades. Feel free to contact him if you think Guzman should be booted from the B's.

has been racing Bs for years and was beating Dan Chabanov back when he was a B - he is now scoring UCI points. Guzman in his defense however, races MAC races in the Bs and he is not the only sandbagger,. He races As in the local stuff.

     It was a weekend’s worth of racing that I shall now type about, so here is the typing that I will do.

  • Hopeful Friday August 22, 2014 -

    I leave the area for a week, and it seems that everyone has forgotten how to snipe away about other riders sandbagging and cutting courses. What has become of the internet?
