Captain Beefheart

Captain Beefheart passed away this week. He truly was an original.

Go Cipo!

Mario Cipollini has always been one of my favorite cyclists. He's a character.Now that he's retired, he wants to offer some constructive criticism & I, for one, can't wait to hear more. Here's the link to a spot on assessment of the 2010 TdF.

Short List

Please listen to this LOUD & tell me , who the hell could do this, today, without studio magic? This is a perfect example of skill vs. hype: DONE.

ScHnOcToBeeRFesT 2010

I apologize that it's taken so long for me to recap. Another banner ride! A new route, complete with pave, a new beer & food stop (LA Fire Door Company, many thanks). New faces brought the rider count to 16. Everyone rode together, which I really appreciated, since I had been on the bike once in the previous two months. The beer tasting afterwards, preceded by a totally unbelievable meal, presented the kind of problem I excel at solving- how do you drink 16 different beers & remain a good judge? Answer: drink the really good ones several times during your judging to center your scoring range! Special thanks to eDBiLLy, Meg, eDDy Lee, CoNNiE for going above & beyond in making this quite simply, the finest CiTy BiLLy ride, ever. The bar has been raised for the next event, LBL!
