Trek Werld: Part Deux

Five things I saw today that were so taco:

5) 50 laps of the Vortex of Terror

4) Opening the day with Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks"

3) The ice cream girls

2) The Kenny Souza lookalike in the Master of Puppets kit

1) The dude that rode for 30 feet as he got his leg caught up on the saddle as he was dismounting, steering with one hand while spilling his open water bottle all over with the other, stopped just as he was about to knock over a table, wobbled, fell over, planted his foot at the last moment, caught himself, dismounted, took a big swig from his bottle ala Napoleon Dynamite, and then ambled away to trade his ride for a smaller one.

Trek Werld I

Bullshittiest excuse: "It's hard to get used to." - Referring to Doubletap shifters. Really? Are you retarded all day, or only when you ride a bike?

Lamest trend: Wheelies in the parking lot. Riding a wheelie in a parking lot full of other bike riders is not mountain biking, it's obnoxious.

Best overheard conversation: "She did Bob Roll."

More later, I'm sure.

Why I Love Bernard Hinault: Reason #86

“I am against them. It is just a ‘Game Boy’ that has a gigolo attached at the end telling the racer when to take a piss."
- B. Hinault on race radios

I know it's old news in this computer age, but that quote sums the man up better than Wikipedia, VeloPress, or some stodgy historian.
