Dude........I finally went pro. I realize I've been sandbagging for quite a while now, so I decided to just cough up the cash-ola and get my upgrade.

This Saturday....
Don't forget about the Wisconsin Night Race Championship at Crystal Ridge. Registration @ 5:30 and racing @7pm.
Yeah...Yeah... there is all kinds of cross racing this weekend, but it's all goin' down in Milwaukee as well and I know you lunatics can't get enough. So get there.

I expect BOTH of you to show up for a night ride this evening on the trails of Tosa.
Hey.....I know it's late notice, but since when has anyone looked to this blog to get accurate information in a timely manner??
I shall depart "Mi Casa De Esperanza" at exactly 5:30 pm and head to the bridge in Tosa at 6pm in hopes of finding some folks there.

HMMMM.....LET'S SEE........

One has a hottie for a running mate.....and the other is gonna let me drink for free?

Suppose that every day, 10 men go out for beer and the bill for all 10 comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: The first 4 men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay $1. The sixth would pay $3. The seventh would pay $7. The eighth would pay $12. The ninth would pay $18. The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. So, that' what they decided to do. The 10 men drank in the bar every day & seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. 'Since you are all such good customers, he said, 'I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20. Drinks for the 10 now cost just $80. The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first 4 men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other 6 men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?' They realized that $20 divided by 6 is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man & the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, & he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. And so: The fifth man, like the first 4, now paid nothing (100% savings). The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings). The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings). The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings). The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings). The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings). Each of the 6 was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. 'I only got a dollar out of the $20', declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,' but he got $10!' 'Yeah, that's right', exclaimed the fifth man. 'I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got 10 times more than me!' 'That's true!!' shouted the seventh man. Why should he get $10 back when I got only 2? The wealthy get all the breaks!' 'Wait a minute,' yelled the first 4 men in unison. 'We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!' The 9 men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the 9 sat down & had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even 1/2 of the bill!

I got to thinkin'....No, not about Jonathan Page....I got to thinkin' what blog couldn't be spruced up a bit by having some pics of fast biking ladies on it?

So here's 1 thru 6 from Sunday's race.

Thanks to Dano, I'm so homo-phobic now the boys get the back page and I'm eating my hotdogs sideways.
