That's the way you do it... lemme tell ya

A salute! A toast! Lift your 40 oz Colt 45 Malt Liquor in the air with me and rejoice! When a fellow blogger wins a race, it's a special occasion, even if said blogger is an aging, stubborn, self coaching, self hair-clipping, blogging, technology shunning piss head. Our esteemed Solobreak has been throwing a good amount of mud on the wall lately, including at the Hartford Crits and the Attleboro Crits, taking two-to-go solo flyers off the front. Last night at Wompatuck some of the mud finally stuck, and SB took top honors. Opportunity knocks once. I practically soil myself when I win a prime, so I have to assume that he's walking on air today. Why, just the other day he was pining about how the final lap at Wompatuck is too fast for anyone to jump out from. There are better ways to win a race, as Solo convincingly demonstrates. I'm jealous but in a good way. See [his/all] pictures from the Attleboro Criterium [offered for purchase]. Nega Coach must be proud... or not.

eh, it's just a training race...

I've now got 3 Tuesday night wins lifetime. Obviously this one was little flukey. Last year I won one in a sprint, but it was a drizzly night and a small field with most of the all stars staying home. But the first one, several years back, that was a long, hard nine man break and I did more than my share of the work before attacking the break at one to go and soloing in. That one had me walking on air, but not this one. But I'll take it, and the $10 too!

A win is a win. Congrats!

Hear! Hear!
I agree- a win is a win.
Cut the crap and do some chest beating. If I won at Wompatuck I'd probably not go to work the next day. Sheesh. What's it take to get you fired up Foley?

I still talk about the win from last year at NHIS. They don't come too often for most of us. Enjoy it. You earned it!

does anyone know the race was neutral for a lap and a half while the break kept going

Yes, that's why it's called a fluke...
