Team Ride Clean, sponsored in part by Drunkcyclist.com (yes, I write checks), took a few big wins this weekend.
And we ain’t even to Sunday yet.
Arizona’s new State Champion is Brain “Ham Fist” Forbes. He won it in grand style, losing his breakaway partner on the finishing incline. That makes two state titles for Hammy this year, the first being the Team Time Trial from back in September. (pdf link for State Champ race info if you’re interested.)
Good on ya, Hammy. I guess sleeping in my living room last night did you good. Must have been the cool mountain air. Or that seven foot thick air mattress you brought with ya. Damn thing looks like a fucking barge. I’ve never seen anything quite like it in my life.
And I’ve seen a lot of things.
Dan “HD” McGehee won his seventh Cochise County Cycling Classic title today. The man is seemingly unstoppable. Seven? You gotta be fucking kidding me. What can’t he do? The man is simply en fuego.
In related news, our dear Bacardi Marti was conned into taking on Cochise this year for the first time. Not the first time being conned by HD; he’s a sucker for the drink and HD is a swindler. Just his first time taking on the Mighty Cochise. And he took a fine third place.
To think I had him pegged for a flat on his back in a Dairy Queen parking lot DNF… (yes, I actually said that.)
At least I didn’t bet on ’em like I did Big Silver. I’d be a twenty spot lighter if I had.
Good looking out, fellas. I’ll keep holding it down here with my fat ass on the sofa and all that, you boys keep doing the pedal/suffer/hurting/pain thing you do so well. Yeah.by
