Not Much to Say

Strength work today. Sprint work tomorrow.

Here is #4 on the list of "Top 5 Sprint Finish Crashes." Djamolidine Abdoujaparov, whom many consider to be the most dangerous sprinter in professional cycling history puts his head down and goes for the win on the Champs Elysees in the 1991 TdF. The problem is he rode right into the barriers. The aerial view at around 4 minutes gives a much better view of the carnage.

I feel like a NASCAR fan watching this. "I just come to the races to see them crash!" And that was a nasty one.
Sounds like you have a lot of "work" planned for this weekend. Have fun out there. But try to avoid anymore confrontations with anymore boaters, will ya? :^)

Lily - push the button. Don't be afraid.

Oldman - I am glad to say I have gone over a week without a confrontation.

Mallie - it was fun but too short.

Blue - do you have any footage of that??

Donald - a wreck like that with no helmet had to be bad.

Jahowie - Me too kind of.

Zach - I have been tagged several times already. Let me think about it.
