    Teammate of mine is over in London

    with the US Paralympic team. He normally races against guys with two arms, and beats many of them.
    So far, he's only done Track events.

    On his trip home, he has to make a quick stop at the White House, since he won a Gold.

    How would you like it if Hitler killed you
    Dogbert.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    If Jesus had a gun, he'd be alive today!

    One of the guys i race against just won Gold too and broke his WR by 7 seconds, He races A grade here ( Cat 1) and places well. Michael Gallager is his name
    Not F Schleck. The last 24k is downhill, and he descends like a drunken cat. Quote: justinb

    That's awesome! Not to be a d!ck, but what's wrong with the British cyclist from the beginning of the first video? Seems to have all 4 limbs intact... The thing I've always wondered about the paralympics is whether different disabilities are grouped together in separate events so that people won't have to face others with disabilities that are less of a hindrance in their sport of choice.

    He took Silver in the road TT.

    One more event....The road race.

    I'm guessing that the British cyclist had an artificial arm.

    I always wonder this stuff innocently with my mouth shut being afraid of "being a jerk" again

    Would be curious to hear about the grouping...
