Track racing "a waste of time and money": Zap(7 posts)

that's what Zap says in his current column on the Mt. Bike ragazine website. Wonder what Bob Rodale, who personally funded the Trexlertown velodrome, would think about a Rodale editor saying that?

Depending on how you look at it, you could say that about golf, skiing, Valentines Day, buying a Lexus instead of a Corolla, educating your kids (they can find work with a high school diploma, right?), going to the doctor (if you get sick and die at 40, your defective genes are out of the pool). Track riding has no purpose, mountain biking has no purpose, riding ANYWHERE except to work and maybe the grocery store has no purpose. Certainly it's hard to justify spending $1500 for a bicycle when you can get one at the Salvation Army for 20 bucks (if you're riding for exercise, the heavier, the better). Zap's in the business of creating controversy; I've been in the same business; let him rant. Doesn't hurt anything.

I have always loved his editorials, but don't get too charged up over what he says because he does it on purpose. As the other poster says he is in the business of creating contraversy and usually does a good job.

Have you ever noticed that you laugh while reading his stuff only when he isn't talking about things that you do?

Lighten up, it's only Zap
