  2. Fabrizio - Check out the June issue of "Cyclogasmic" - there is an interview with Cippolini in which
    he waxes poetically about how he and Ulrich trained together last February on a pair of Optima
    Barons in the Ticino region of Italy.

    Hey John, are you familiar with the group of roadies that ride out of Lennon on Wednesday nights for
    the fast 32 mile ride? Last year I couldn't keep up with them........got dropped around the 10 mile
    mark every time. This year I messed with them so bad. I dropped the whole pack of fast guys 4 times.
    On the last attack, I sprinted for over a mile at 31 mph and beat them back to the parking lot by 2
    minutes time. They were a little surprised. Looking forward to doing it to them again this
    wednesday.

    ckaudio1, lets deal with reality, ok?

    First thing, that was Monday night and they were on a disciplined recovery ride and just rolled
    their eyes at you when you did the silly showboating riding off the front thing.

    Second, a leadout may last for over a km, but a true sprint is done over a distance of 300
    meters or less.

    I was wondering how you guys can ever pull a sprint off when you're laying on your back and pedaling
    with your feet above your head?

    And I hate to tell you, but the 'A group' is leaving from a different location on Wednesday this
    season. Guys like me from the select bunch have to change start locations five or six times a year
    just to get rid of the no-hope hanger-ons from starting the ride with us, even though we soon drop
    you, you seem to always show up at the post ride coffee stop.

    Like I've said before, all it takes is one recreational type to ruin the whole look of the group.
    That's why I like training on the Liguria coast with guys from team Domina Vacanze-Elitron.

    Not that this makes you a bad person.

    So its "the look" that matters the most? Hmmm, the truth comes out.

    Rorschandt Ride for fun, ride to go somewhere.
