It's mostly for pre and post race massages. It 'hurts' them too much when the masseuse is stretching the skin, apparently.Picard said:
Uhm, no he couldn't. He had a gun put to his face. He's a very short and skinny guy too, not exactly intimidating to attackers. The bike is given to him for free by his sponsor, he probably had a new one in a few days. Not worth risking your life over. He had to take a detour during his training route because one of the roads was closed off for consttruction or something and was forced to pass through some bad neighborhood. He was bike jacked when he got off to get some water I think.Picard said:He could have fought off the attacker. Where the heck did Tinker ride to get bike-jacked.

I'm pretty sure that Tinker does alot of road miles. He is trying to qualify for RAAM if I remember right.beeristasty said:Tinker trains on the road too. At least he did last year. I read something somewhere that said he was bike-jacked during a stop on a road ride. Pretty crazy stuff.
I'm at a loss for words as to why you are checking out all the dudes like that....Picard said:
I ride enough that the hair on my legs gets worn off from the pads, straps, and bike socks. This leaves an interesting 'hair pattern'. I've had to explain it enough that I have been thinking of just shaving it all off. Maybe I should get one of those Epiladys.Picard said:
