Mensa provides a forum for intellectual exchange among members. Kind of like NYvelocity.

so anyone who rides their track bike on the street to the kissena velodrome to race is a d-bag?

anyone riding a track bike on the street is a douchebag, i don't think being a hipster enters into it

By: Wheelsucker

it's prehaps too dangerous to mix people running brakes and people running brakeless in a tight crit race. think about it.

You've arrived when you are called a sandbagger... congrats Matt. Ride strong and good luck in '09

Richards is not a sandbagger
By: Wheelsucker
Wed, 02/11/2009 - 1:03am

Look at his results. It's not like he is winning every race. He has raced in some big races and those results are wieghted pretty high. It looks like Battenkill was his only top 5. Give the guy a break and a pat on the back. Congrat's on the ranking Rich.

Richards is getting blasted for being a sandbagger and he hasn't even raced in '09 yet. I aspire to be called a sandbagger. I'd wear it as a badge of honor - get a wristband, put it on my kit, tattoo it on my cat.

Is it actually possible to be the #1 ranked 4 without accumulating enough points to upgrade? If so, then maybe we should withold the trash talk.

By: Wheelsucker
Tue, 02/10/2009 - 9:16pm

I think it means exactly that. He's the best sandbagger in the Empire State.

Isn't that entire program a pyramid scheme? I heard Alex Ostroy has disappeared and was last seen boarding a plane with two cloth duffle bags adorned with dollar signs.

Why did CRCA feel that in the Matt Richards they had to ID "Schmalz"

Schmalz [Pacifico-Hincapie Sportswear racer] says it’s a stretch, but I think I can do it.

Is there anyone out there who doesn't know the Man/Myth/Legend? At this point Schmalz is like Pele or Madonna. Or at least, Seal.
