The Unreasoned Decision

Disclaimer: I'm gonna swear...a lot.


I am officially announcing that I will no longer be racing bicycles. My brief return to racing the last five years has been fun, but I have had my share of the enormous physical and emotional drain that it places on me.I have accepted my gradual decline in performance as I age, that's part of life, and I wont be going to my doctor and asking for testosterone.
I still plan on riding a bunch, but with no specific goal, other than to have fun at Raystown of course. Not to mention I will have more time to get back to bashing the doping scum that has invaded my sport like a cancer that wont go away. This cancer has spread to every part of bike racing now and I want nothing to do with it.

I must admit it was a lot more fun bashing dopers back when bashing dopers wasn't cool. I will also say this to my credit: Every asshole cyclist that I suspected for doping over the last decade eventually got busted. The cheating has evolved with the science. And before you know it they will be doping at the genetic level, if not already.

I want to extend a big thank you to 331 for great racing, and to Rody for creating a machine that literally helped my performances. I also want to thank Jon Lorson...many an epic battle we have had over the years. I trained many a hard, miserable mile thinking of him, and I'm sure I have given him great motivation as well.
 And one last thank you to Travis Tygart, the man who took on the armstrong machine and brought him to his knees.

Now I will go ride my bike hard. Not because I have to, but because I like to. And sorry for the swearing, but I do feel much better now.

I like you a lot, but what are you thinking? I see you below on the podium in 1st and 2nd place! There are only a couple guys who can beat you in your age group. Would you want the guys getting beat by you to accuse you of doping? Just keep giving it all you've got!

Anyone that knows me knows I don't win with brute strength. As a matter of fact I am one of the weaker expert riders. I do however do well in the twisty stuff, and fiche course is tight and short then I can do well.
The point I am trying to make is that the pharma industry is trying to make us all feel like we need T to be young again. Well the hell with that! Anyone that uses T and toes the line is a cheater, plain and simple. F$&@ the cheaters!

That was a bad idea for me last year. I tried to be fit in April which in turn left me devastated come the end of September. This race was custom made for you.

meh...maybe. Certainly favorable terrain and road surface, but I'm pretty unfit in April - at least in any cycling sense. Still hope to make it though.
