Ride Report: You absolutely wont beleive this!cmride
Aug 12, 2003 11:01 PM
Everyday tuesday a group of about 30 riders in my area get together for a ride of around 27 miles. The rides are led by local cat 1 racers, so the pace can become pretty brisk. Well last night there was this guy there with a
king of the mountains jersey, they whole bit. My friends and I immediately thought fred/poser. Well when we started he was nonchalantly hanging in the middle of the pack. We thought our suspicions were confirmed. About 10 miles into the ride the cat 1's started to hammer up a much feared climb and the polka dot guy had already worked his way up there and was in the process of dropping THEM. My buddy and me peddled our butts off and cought them. When we got there we were about ready to have a heart attack, while the guy just smiled at us. We all tried to drop this guy but noone seemed to be able to, not even the Cat 1's. After the ride, (i finished almost las after trying to keep up with the leaders), I tracked this guy down. It turns out he is only 18 years old. I thought he would be stuck up but he is very nice. I found out that he also posts on the site under indurain as a screen name. Anyone heard of him or know him? Anyway just wanted to keep ya posted.

That young man needs a coach.
Sounds like future pro material.
