    Your crew of high school facebook friends probably laugh at your sophomoric schtick, but here it's just desperately pathetic. Sorry to rain on your parade, skippy.

    Creaky actually follows and understands racing -- that'd be why he started the thread to begin with. If you don't believe me, ask him.

    Am I interfering? Is it my fault no one has anything else to contribute? Why don't you say something positive instead of insulting me?

    I think that particular racer is a hotty. So sue me.
    I hate you all

    his keirin win was un-f**king-believable. Way back with one lap to go, but pushing a monster gear (106" or even 108" gear?!!?)..... they claim he hit a PR 78kph in the last lap -- 48+mph! damn ....

    his split for the final 200 was 10.55, just over 67kph. either way, scary fast...

    The new track is fast and they kept the temperature high which explains some of the records being set.

    ... and I've been quite close to Hoy and it's fair to say he's built like a bull.

    I am also male, and accept my apology. I didn't mean to be insulting. I apologize if my comments were over the line, and I apologize for opening up the discussion to some truly dirty remarks. I didn't know any better.

    However, I am not sorry for finding Jessica Varnish to be attractive, and sharing those feelings here. If I derailed the thread, and turned away all of those that actually wanted to discuss women's racing, well, I apologize for that too.

    I will now bow out, and let the discussion of World Championship Women's Racing continue...

    Or, er, begin...
    I hate you all

    j/k lol kthxbye!
