American Road Cycling is happy
to have had a hand in numerous race results coming in from this
Hearing that Godzilla trounced the
living shit out of a bunch of power lines, commuter trains, and
innocent bystanders is one of our happiest moments.
To answer his first question, regular rides are still going out,
even though Paul's widdle weggies huht (still) from his sojourn

coming up, plus
Chuckie's Mission—if anybody's got the guts for it.
The Mission, Paul has publicly
stated that he has now done
enough hills to last a
lifetime. Maybe he wouldn't be so tuckered out if he hadn't
spent last Sunday's ride behind the group pushing me past George
Tail, then George Tail past me, then me past Tail, Tail past
