    Ran into Bostick on his bike commute tonight, we had a little chat. He says he will be on a DIII
    team out of Atlanta, with Gaggioli, Chad Gerlach, Cameron Hughes, and a few others. Don't think
    Gerlach and Gagg will leave the west coast all year, but they will do qute a bit of racing in the
    area, including the TdGeorgia. Team was put together by the infamous "Mapei Guy". Local 1,2 riders
    know who I am talking about. We will see if it all comes together. Greg

    I've done some training with a local U23 guy who signed a contract with a new
    Div. III outfit out of Atlanta called D&R Sportivo. Initially, Gaggioli's name came up as one of the
    guys on the team. But then I heard that he and a couple of the other lead guys pulled out. Then
    I heard the words "Noble House" used quite a few times in reference to them.

    But my U23 friend still insists there's a team and he's training like mad. I believe he's supposed
    to be at a training camp in N. Georgia next week.

    I was at Northbrook track a few years back for "Stock Bike Night" with a bunch of other clowns. Some
    guy pulls up with a nice ass Colnago track bike – full Mapei kit down to the socks and gloves. We
    think we're in to get smoked, and as the race gets called to line – the wanker's got his helmet on
    backwards. What the hell is that? Word was he was some Mapei exec or some shit who was on their
    "club" team. I hope that's not the same guy because I would not want a team director with the
    backwards helmet. How could you take him seriously. -a

    The team has a "B" squad with a bunch of decent regional Cat 1's on it. SHould be a force to be
    reckoned with. Greg

    The imfamous 'Mapei guy'. I have seen him at races. He does exist. Word from some riders in his area
    (southeast) is that he actually believed he was on the team. He said something about being an
    alternate for P-R the year Tafi won...delusional. Don't know what his connection to the team was,
    but they said every year he would have the new Mapei kit and bike, the Lazer helmet, even the socks!

    That double negative is about the most positive thing you've ever posted.

    "Holy shit! An RBR story that >>>> didn't suck<<< donkey balls."

    "Didn't" - negates the adjective it describes. "Suck" - is a negative adjective describing the noun.
    In this case the story.

    We repeat the question: "Do you know what a double negative is?" Or we restate it in alternative
    terms: "You don't got no clue what a double negative is" STF

    THis infamous Mapei guy, if it's the dark skinned dude i think we're talking about, does ride tafi's
    old bike. He rides for the club team and he buys his bikes off of the mechanic for mapei or
    something. He did manage to weasel in to Olympic qual race. I wasn't there, but if you watch the
    footage closely you will see him, also I heard from a friend whom was there he did blow his load a
    quarter into the race, or he crashed <it was raining, and i'm sure he was really shaky and
    shit>.... CHips chapman last year told him he could no longer race in
    the mapei stuff, haven't seen the dude since....

    This is the guy. He did the 2000 Olympic Qual race and he did the Elite Natz RR too in Natchez,
    MS. Funny....

    Wonder if he'll race for Quickstep now....
