Julie Boonen on the Tron Light Cycle on Last Night's Crazy Bastard Ride. Hmmm, my head feels funny looking into those swirling lights ...
Last night's ride video courtesy of Adam McIntyre YouTube: Julie, Tom Boonen's Sister aka Julie Whalen rocked her Tron Light Cycle last night. As you can see, Adam thinks she snatched the soul of one of those Tron Light Cycles and rocked it. Knowing Julie Boonen, it could be. I do believe that I had a seizure shortly after riding up on her wheel and looking into those lights.
Great ride, good group of 15 Bastards stayed together and did some distance and an hour and a half ride. The weather was nice! (Compared with this morning)
Once more reminder for the BIG BAD WOLF RACE this coming weekend. While you're enjoy the BIG BAD WOLF Theme music, in the video below, you can either visit the race's website or continue on with the rest of the nonsense in today's blog.
The Big Bad Wolf Theme Song. Something get you fired up for Sunday's BIG BAD WOLF RACE in Midland.
SO WHAT'S NEXT AFTER THE BIG BAD WOLF? MORE RACES, BUT NO MORE ANIMAL THEMED RACES. HOW SAD.
While there are several cyclocross races available here in and around the general region this year, and early next year (New Year's Chicago UCI Double, US Nationals in Madison WI, and the Master's World Championship in Louisville in ), there are no more animal themed races, like the BIG BAD WOLF which is extremely disheartening, don't you think?
Well I saw this shot, somewhere, just the other day and I thought, how about a PANDAMONIUM Race? Yeah, we all wear Panda Outfits (extremely warm in the winter) and then act so strange, that, well you see what happens later. But for now check out the Panda Outfits. Really fit the event, don't they?
Remounting, the flying Panda looks good. Room for the helmet in that big head and the mouth provides an excellent field of vision.
The big mouth is also excellent for dollar grabs, I guess. Hey Panda, do you know where that dollar has been?
And everybody loves a Panda. The Panda outfit always draws a big crowd.
But why is this Panda stopping to entice these children with Panda Bars? And WTF (W=where) is his bike. Oh yeah laying outside the barriers. Bad, Panda, bad. You'll end up in the Panda Pen with that coach guy that likes to shower so much.
Here's another bad Panda, doing his worst. What is it about the showers? Are they the gateway to hell?
But that's not the only time Panda's and Pandamonium Parties have gotten into trouble. Here's a New York Pandamonium event that's about to go horribly wrong.
J-POW CONTEST: LEARN HOW YOU CAN WIN RAPHA GEAR OR SOMETHING BY IMITATING THE LIFE AND TIMES OF J-POW-JEREMY POWERS PROFESSIONAL CYCLOCROSS RACER ON CAMERA
You need to watch and get all the details. Frankly I think this guy wins, so what's the point of doing another video. It's over. Big Mac and I commiserated last night (this video is courtesy of Big Mac by the way) are looking for J-Pow to take the U.S. National Championship this year. If he quits fucking around on camera long enough.

THE PARTING SHOT AND DOING TIME
Thanks Julie McGraw and Julie McGraw Photography for this great, yet weird and disturbing photo. As a result of this being posted on FB instead of having a poster of myself hanging on bars, I'm now behind bars sharing a jail cell with the Panda and some guy everybody calls coach. Anyway I gotta go. The Panda and the coach say it's shower time. If I'm good, I guess I get released just in time for the race on Sunday. I should be good and clean by then.
