Easter = torrential downpours + hills + free porn by dpnation

Coming at ya, your always punctual and better spelling blogging cyclist, Le Prep. This weekend was Yale’s Lux et Velocitas. Our now regular home away from home one-upped its previous visits, not only with its proximity to wings, but also the fact that the girls room inexplicably had free porn the whole weekend. Now maybe our reaction was a bit overboard (shrieking and fleeing from the room in horror), but what can I say, we are classy broads who prefer pillow fights and giggling over gossip in hotels instead.

Saturday’s races were more like a triathlon with the swimming and cycling disciplines combined. Does Oakley sell sunglasses with wipers? Target Market: cyclists riding during the month of April in the northeast. Trust me, I’m an MBA.

After pizza and a cannoli (we tried to go to Pepe’s but were denied in our quest to feed 9 people at once), we came upon the greatest license plate ever. (Although, this one is pretty good too, but we didn’t see it in person.)

Sunday’s crit actually saw the sun and some tornado-like windgusts (Northeastern’s tent took off like a kite), but it was a massive improvement given the appearance of the sun, so we’ll take it. Which brings us to our next topic:

Attn: Women’s B:

The hazards of Womens B

The hazards of Women's B (pic stolen from Columbia)

1) What the heck happened on turn 5? My favorite person to draft off of (if she’s showered) suffered some massive carnage and doesn’t remember a thing. Anyone see what happened? (My buddy has percocet right now, so she won’t be mad.. she’s just curious. I know, just what we need.. another Ivy Leaguer on prescription painkillers..). In the meantime, I guess I’ll have to make those first-lap breaks solo. Anyone with details can hit me up on Facebook or if you’re the paranoid type, leave an anonymous comment below.

2) An addendum to the previous PSA post: If you have spent the last two weekends getting yelled at by numerous other B riders about your inability to corner in a crit, maybe you should take note take a freakin hint. I’m sure some Columbia riders would be happy to name a name, but hopefully this passive aggressive request will be heeded. Until then, know that those angry glares really are being directed towards you.

There should be pics from Sunday making their way to the interwebs soon, but in the meantime you can occupy yourself by checking out the Washington Post’s 3rd annual Peeps contest. Note that #29 uses bicycle parts.

Next week we head to Dartmouth’s L’Enfer du Nord (not to be confused with the real L’Enfer du Nord). But hey, we’re totally cool with a road race sans cobblestones. Happy to leave that one to the pros.

The Columbia team is great.. like typical New Yorkers, they don’t take sh!t from anyone. Much appreciated when it comes to sketchy riders. Even more frustrating when said riders finish in the top 10.

Heal quickly, druggie!

Thanks for the love. I don’t know about the rest of my team, but I guess I’m just tired of NOT getting in the top 10 because I get cut off on the last lap by those people who can’t hold their line through a turn. Sorry for being a b**ch, though.

Also, I’m known as the one with my legs all askew up there.

Comment by New Yorker

b!tches > people who can’t hold their line

That is an excellent scissor kick you’ve got going on. If this were soccer.
