I currently a using a Schwinn three wheeler road bike and am not be allowed to race in local events. Isn't this discrimination. I have a evinrude 60 horse power motor because of my handicap. I am missing my ring finger on my left hand. This was caused from a weedwacker incident. Anyway back to the story. Is this discrimination or do I need to find another hobby.

They'll probably tell you that you're SOL. BTW, is the Evinrude an inboard or outboard? If you do need a new hobby, you may want to consider candlestick bowling. I understand that the balls used in candlestick bowling have no finger holes, thereby eliminating any disadvantage that would be engendered by the unfortunate loss of your left ring finger. I don't know where you live, but the appeal of candlestick bowling seems to be a limited to a few New England states, particularly (as I recall) Maine and New Hampshire. If you do decide to relieve yourself of the Evinrude, my neighbor has a 14' alumininum boat without a motor. He may be interested in a purchase or a trade for a complete set of the like-like Marie Osmond dolls manufactured by the L.L. Knickerbocker Company. Finally a real cycling question. Thanks, Wayne.

That's what it was called when I visited my bro in DC. This sport is the single greatest self-image booster ever!
AHHA! Sheer genius!

Wild card teams to be announced soon; Pantani rumored to be trying a new hobby.

"I have been discriminated against", said Pantani in a press conference today. "Cipollini and I will be joining forces in the age-graded mixed doubles tournament to be held in Randolph, VT, this July."
