    From an article on Dailypeloton profiling sportsbook.com rider Ron Hudson

    "but…enigmatic ex-Mercury director John Wordin was heard earlier this season touting Ron as "the
    next Tom Danielson."

    "At a standstill for 30 seconds behind a wreck at the bottom of the climb, he rocketed from 70
    riders back finish 1:13 behind the leaders—actually climbing the hill faster than Vaughters
    and Horner!"

    Who the hell is this guy? He looks like he is 35 years old. And what

    I think this dude wrote this article about himself and sent it to Dailypeloton under an
    anonymous name.

    Seriously, who is he?

    Rodney Kingston The next Henk Vogels.....

    After spending an hour or more in a chase group with him at Solano this is what I know. He is super
    skinny, tan as hell, not smart, real strong, and probably a lame teammate (if you are thinking Chris
    Walker, so was I). He spent the whole chase trying to ride away from the chase group and his two
    teammates it contained. Every time I

    the rotation, and riding like a retard. I think our chase group chased him down like 10 times. I
    couldn't believe that his teammates didn't stick him in a ditch. The funniest part was when going
    into a 30 mph cross headwind he pull really hard to the wrong side. I follow (me retarded) and with
    the help of another teammate takes us off the group of 15. This leaves me with him and his two
    teammates trying to get back to the chase group (oh bike racing sucks). But then instead of the four
    of us working to quickly get back on he attacks by himself leaving me with his two teammates. That
    causes us to spend 5 minutes chasing him, while he chases the 10 or so guys in front of us, while
    they ride away. Brilliant. I was in hell.

    PS the reason I knew his name was because I couldn't believe someone could ride like such a douch,
    so I checked the results that night to see who he was.

    I've heard some stories. email me at the adelphia.net account if you're actually interested in the
    strangeness.

    Sometimes there are some wackos in cycling.

    yes, Walker is skinny, strong, and chasing melanoma. But for 15 years I've been hearing guys say he
    is not smart and he is a bad teammate. Mostly from guys he beats every week. I've raced with him and
    against him, and he might not be the next incarnation of Einstein or anything, but he is a smart
    bike racer. And you don't hear too many complaints from teammates sharing his prize splits either.
