Dumbass,

I have it on good authority that you are still going to
be shit in July.

As for the tactics question, unless your friend has the
horsepower to ride away from all the people that might
chase, ability as a time trialist is of no value. We
are talking Cat 4s, right?

The problem with Cat 4 is that everyone is attacking all the time.

Your strategy seems sound except it would probably work a little better if
you jump just as the pack catches someone else's try.

A 10m gap? Nope, won't work.

Take Tom's idea about countering, and instead of attacking violently
off the front, just gradually roll off the front as the pack slows
naturally. Don't make a big deal of it, don't get out of the saddle.
If you're lucky, you could easily find yourself 100m or so off the
front before anyone even notices. Only once you've gotten clear, ramp
up the speed gradually.

Or, if you're able to recover well, be THAT guy who just keeps
attacking until everyone is about to get pissed. But, don't attack
all out. Do your attacks at about 80% effort so you don't blow up,
but knowing full well you're going to get chased and caught. If
you're lucky, after 4 or 5 of these 'attacks' someone will try a
counter. When that person is caught, try to roll off the front
gradually and don't look back, just peek under your shoulder to see if
the pack is responding. There's a really good chance that the folks
in the front of the pack will just let you go, thinking 'eh, it's just
Ryan, he'll be right back' since you've already attacked/been brought
back a half dozen times or so. So, when you find yourself dangling
off the front and eventually get about 200-250m off the front, ramp up
the speed. By the time they notice you're up the road, there's a
chance they'll revert to "I'm not chasing him, you chase him". It
helps if you have teammates in the group that no one wants to drag
along so that they win the sprint anyway.

I'm just saying.

Let your friend try to get away solo while you sit in and stay fresh
for the sprint. Duh.

What he said.

Seriously, if breakaways rarely win Cat 4 races in BC then
trying to break away is not a smart tactic.

I knew a guy that upgraded to Cat 2 by training only for
sprints. That's all he did, sprints. No distance work at
all. He raced crits and never took a pull. He rode in
circles and then sprinted.

Once he upgraded he was dog meat because all of a sudden
he wasn't at the end anymore to sprint. But he did get his
upgrade.

Or you could try Scott's suggestions, which are to try to
get away in a fashion that no one will chase. But if
sprinting is the card you play then keep your nose out of
the wind.

Dumbass:

No upgrade for you until you get consistently call two people Dumbass
in one post. If you are going to specialize, show some panache,
Dumbass.

And, no, calling the same person Dumbass in the same post doesn't
count. That's just a neener, neener thing.

I'm here to say stuff my wife doesn't put up with in real life, at
least not when she is within striking distance. Bad jokes, any puns,
personal criticism of LA, off the wing opinions unsupported by fact or
circumstance, that sort of stuff. Now you know why...

FWIW (nothing, coincidentally), I think we stay on topic better than
most groups. There is a general centering around things bicycle
racing, even if I haven't been completely in touch with things since
races began to be won with marques other than Italian, French and
occasionally Brit. What's with this Specialized crap, anyway? Anyone
have a Winner Pro available? What happened to the good stuff?

Use your sprint speed to get a gap, use your teammate's tt ability to
hold it, leading to an increased chance for you to win the sprint out of
a smaller group than then entire cat 4 peloton? (Or am I reading your
intentions wrong?) It at least sounds fun :)

Too bad for him.

The real fun in local Cat 1/2 races is trying to read the race correctly and
get into the right breakaway.

MF Hussain's hypocrisy

Buzz It
 


Judge yourself......................please read and see the pictures
If a person dresses like a Sikh Guru, thousands of Sikhs gather and destroy their establishments , threaten to kill him, announce a bounty on his head - Sikhs are not criticised for being communal and intolerant,

If a Danish journalist depicts the Prophet of the Muslims , Muslims all over the world rise in anger, there is violence, a booty on the head of the Journalist - Muslims are not criticised for being communal and intolerant,
If MF Hussain draws paintings depiciting Hindu Gods and Goddesses ######### positions (which relations are not borne out by ancient texts at all ) and Hindus merely protest , they are called communal, intolerant and taught lessons in secularism by one and all.
The problem apparently is not with Sikhs and Muslims, it is with Hindus , because we are not violent, we accept what ever is dished out to us , we do not have the guts to say that this is wrong , we seek acceptance from outsiders rather than from our conscience. We worship the same GOds and Godesses but dont stand up for them when the time comes.

Be a judge yourself of Hussain ' s paintings below.

[]  
Goddess Durga ######### union with Tiger

[]  
Prophet ' s Daughter Fatima fully clothed

[]
Goddess Lakshmi naked on Shree Ganesh ' s head

[]  
M.F. Hussain ' s Mother fully clothed

Naked Saraswati

[]  
[]
Mother Teresa fully clothed

[]  
Naked Shri Parvati

[] Hussain ' s Daughter well clothed
[]  
Naked Draupadi.

[]  
Well cloth! ed Muslim Lady.

[]  
Naked Lord Hanuman and Goddess Sita sitting on thigh of Ravana

[]  
Muslim poets Faiz, Galib are shown well-! clothed

[]  
Full Clad Muslim King and naked Hindu Brahmin. The above painting clearly indicates Hussain ' s tendency to paint any Hindu as naked and thus his hatred..

[]  
Naked Bharatmata - Hussain has shown naked woman with names of states written on different parts of her body. He has used Ashok Chakra, Tri-colour in the painting. By doing this he has violated law & hurt National Pride of Indians. Both these things should be of grave concern to every Indian irrespective of his religion.

!

[]  
Out of the four leaders M. Gandhi is decapitated and Hitler is naked. Hussain hates Hitler and has said in an interview 8 years ago that he has depicted Hitler naked to humiliate him and as he deserves it ! How come Hitler ' s nudity cause humiliation when in Hussain ' s own statement nudity in art depicts purity and is in fact an honour ! This shows Hussain ' s perversion and hypocrisy.

 
Don ' t feel shy to circulate. Atleast 10 people should know,
'HOW COWARD WE HINDUS ARE'

WE DON'T HAVE COURAGE TO PROTECT OUR SELF RESPECT.

I am still reeling from reading complacent instead of complement. I
really shouldn't do this & work at the same time.

RB's are generally toxic after 30. They fall off & fall off hard so if
you always dump them when their contract is up after 30 you would
usually be making the right decision. Having said that we need another RB.

LT 's numbers

http://www.nfl.com/players/ladainiantomlinson/profile?id=TOM683150

Thomas Jones

http://www.nfl.com/players/thomasjones/profile?id=JON755755

Jones got his avg up to 4.2 by the end of the year. His numbers suck
when he touches the ball >20 times a game. So that is another argument
to support changing him out as how do you waste Greene & Washington to
accomplish that.

LT can catch the ball out of the backfield as can Washington which is
something Jones couldn't do or Schott didn't trust him doing it. We
know Schott likes screens so there is a use there. Line up Washington &
LT in the backfield, put Smith in motion, move one or both into the slot
may make up for having only one TE that can catch.

Then again he could suck.

I have written about this kid before. He has great feet and is probably
a LT so he would give depth at 3 maybe 4 positions. We have been lucky
on the line with injuries. Hell maybe he replaces Hunter as the extra
guard as this kid was a great hoop player and I mean dribbling the ball
at 6'6" to break the press.

By gølly, yøu håve å pøint!

BTW, how did you know that I run Linux? Most people would assume from my
headers showing Agent that I'm using Windows. Actually, I use Agent
under WINE in Linux because I have just never found a newsreader that I
like as much, just as I use Eudora through WINE for email. Maybe I'm
just a creature of habit.

This guy is obviously confused about whatever point he's trying to
make. He talks about how NFL teams get to save money because of
non-guaranteed contracts as though bonuses don't exist, but then,
because they do exist, marginalizes them because the cap
consequences of those bonuses get to be spread over multiple years.
What does how the bonuses get cost accounted have to do with whether
or not they exist?

What is oft misunderstood about the NFL and it's non-guaranteed
contracts is that they only exist because, given the cap and how
it's designed, that's the way the players want it anyway. Take the
case of a player who signs a $40MM five year deal with $25MM to be
guaranteed. He has a simple choice. Take the $25MM in the form of
$5MM per year in guaranteed money, or take the whole $25MM up front
in the form of a signing bonus. Which would you take? Sure, you
could make the case that the whole $40MM should be guaranteed, but
that would be a case for increasing the total amount of money to be
paid to players, and not a case for guaranteed contracts. If the
total amount of money to be paid to players remained the same, and
all contracts had to be guaranteed, then that $40MM would never have
been the deal in that case to begin with.

The whole "non-guarenteed contract" in the NFL is a bad thing
argument is bogus on its face.

There are some guaranteed salaries. The Jets have used it a few times.

With Vilma it was smart. They had cap space & they knew they wouldn't
cut him so you get more of the guaranteed portion out of the way. We did
the same thing with Gholston and that doesn't look too smart now.

The non-guaranteed portion is a two edged sword & has value for player &
team.. If Greene doesn't step up & play so well at the end of the year
then Jones makes $6MM and is a FA. Instead he will make $5MM at the
back end of his career.

All of which provides further proof that there is no rule against
non-guaranteed contracts, and that it's a natural consequence of the
way the salary cap was designed.

I don't think the author says otherwise. I think all he said was that
it's allowed in the NFL and apparently not in other leagues.

I agree that the author didn't say otherwise. It's just a pet peeve
I have about how the whole issue of non-guaranteed contracts are
misperceived in many circles.

Yes, and instead of the NFL following suit with, for instance, MLB,
and going to a system of no cap, but guaranteed contracts, they,
with the players, wisely chose to go in a different direction. IMO,
this lead to the rise of the NFL to heights of well above where it
would otherwise exist today.

Yeah, I've seen some people say that it's unfair to the players. They
fail to recognize that contracts have adapted with this in mind and that
bonus money and the overall guaranteed money of the contract tends to be
lower when the entire thing is guaranteed.

In the end, as far as fairness goes, it doesn't really matter. It's
still an open market and players can still negotiate the best possible
deal. The exception to this is the franchise/transition tags, RFA/ERFA,
and the draft. If the NFLPA was really interested in "fairness", they'd
demand that tagging and restricted free agency is eliminated. But I
haven't heard that that's even on the table.

Pool & Coles are one knock on the coconut away from being done.

buRf, it is the ugly part of this sport and the problem is how many were
hidden at the jhs, hs, & college level? It is a one year deal.

Damn...your as old as me...maybe...I was already done playing in college
