He's ok if he's not the fastest on the block, but that doesn't lead him to treat cycling like an adult kickball league as so many do. Cycling is important. It's ok to train for it. It's ok to want to be faster, because that's actually more fun than sucking completely. At the same time, being fast doesn't make you better than anyone else, and he knows that, too.

The Pirates of the Caribbean may have Jolly Roger, we have this...
Way back in February as the other spot whores and I sat down to plan the season, the fairhill classic came up on each of our lists. It's a local race, a 7 minute bike ride from my house, annually one of the largest drawing, and best run, best courses in the east. Diane looked at me as I was working on prioritizing my races and gave me the real deal.
"I hope you don't list Fairhill as an A race this year, because you always seem to fuck that one up."
