    Apparently Coloradoans prefer to roll, then tuck, then toke!

    I can't tell you how happy I was that no CGI's were hurt.

    "I too, 2 broken ribs in this moment :)"

    No sneezing or laughing! Heal quickly!

    One rider was nearly taken down by a loose dog yesterday (1'-2' near miss) and a deer sprinted across the road right in front of the bunch.

    You should have referred to it to save brain damage.

    Some assumption required.

    Forget the podium girls. Instead fish in the waters of motorcycle racing umbrella girls: [IMG ALT=""]http://www.cyclingforums.com/content/type/61/id/275922/width/500/height/1000[/IMG]

    I was alone, in 5 years no crashing until this time.
    Sorry for my english to explain it.
    I was doing a good effort near 50 km/h and I change the gear for 1 less and I tried to start a sprint.
    At moment of start the sprint , my gear didn't enter well and I lose the control and I had wounds on elbows, ass, hips, knees, hands and shoulders, apart from two broken ribs.

    Good vid :D

    Your English is better than my Spanish. I took four years of Spanish in High School and two courses on my way thru college...MANY years ago!

    More scars to impress the ladies!
