What makes a man give neutral service? Lust for gold? Power? Or was he just born with a heart full of neutrality?

TheManofPA: nanim: I wonder what the contents are of the 'neutral' feed bags that just have the olympic rings on them?  Suppose they contain some Japanese favourites?

Ramen was a bad choice


I reached into my feed bag and a squid grabbed my hand!

Lots of fans on side of the road.
234KM. 5 hours?

Is the cycling road race the only event where your team can use a car?

That was not a "I was just riding along" on cobbles or rough roads situation.

BadCosmonaut: Monty_Zoncolan: No... frames don't crack, that just doesn't happen. That would be unsafe.

Carbon fiber can crack when under stress.


Then why use it for a stressful race?

Yes, road racing IS JRA, albeit a bit faster.

How many bikes have you broken? Are you a dirt jumper or a BMX rider? Maybe downhill MTB? Monoe of those? Then You probably have a warranty issue. Bike frames don't just break.

Hey, Fernando Alonso is an avid cyclist. Also, I ran into Jenson Button while riding near Nice France. A lot of motor racers train on a bike.

solokumba: eddie_irvine: solokumba: eddie_irvine: solokumba: eddie_irvine: ChopperCharles: You said a road race. I was expecting cars or motorcycles, Not spandex and children's' toys. Maybe they'll be some epic crashes. Otherwise, all the entertainment value of watching paint dry.

So, do you consider American football, baseball, basketball, etc... sports with children's toys? If not, explain your redneck opinion.

I'll answer but I'm far from redneck status. Football and Basketball have time limits. It's down to the clock. Baseball needs more time limits and enforce them with penalties. As far a soccer goes... the field needs to be smaller with walls that you can bounce the ball off. Tell me I'm wrong.

But aren't sticks and balls still children's toys? Why would time limits not make them such?

All sports are children's toys. Even war. To get paid for it there needs to be money and a time limit.

So since cycling doesn't have a time limit then they don't get paid? Not sure I follow the logic. I was simply pointing out to the troll that a lot sports use children's toys since he diminished cycling by saying that it uses children's 'toys'. Personally, I wouldn't consider a $16,000 technological wonder a children's toy but ymmv.

Who cares that you can ride a bicycle. Most 6 year olds can do that. Your point?


Excellent point. How many 6 year olds are there in this race again?
