Addiction 2021.2

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Note to all:
The takeaway is; get yourself an awesome Marigold jacket and use it!

IIRC, former champs may wear the colored stripes as part of their jerseys.

First crabon frame evar. Made by Exxon. They called it “graflex” because apparently it was quite a noodle. A very light and expensive noodle.
