Earlier this month Team Redlands held it's annual Women's cycling skills clinic. I have a pretty keen eye for talent and can usually spot a rider who has NOT attended the skills clinic.
Here you can see the result of a poorly fitting Kit. Improperly sized bike and lack of understanding regarding the directional air flow of the carbon fiber frame. Lastly you rarely see the reverse cow girl on a bike.

For the longest time I have joked that I did not know what " CRIT" meant. I just figured one day I would figure it out through osmosis or the Urban dictionary. Last night I found out was CRIT was short for.
Lucky for us one of the factory's on Marigold avenue had there surveillance camera running. The footage is raw and not in english but anyone that was there can tell you the screaming was not in any language that resembled english.
A one year ban was handed out to the unknown rider of unknown origin from unknown parts. He is eligible to return next year May 20,2012. To be reinstated he must perform the following tasks:
1. Bake cookies for everyone at crit.
2. Provide a letter from the Bob Knight anger management school.
3. Wear an Orange vest.
4. Submit his name to the County for tracking data base.
5. Help JT with his lawn.
6. Get a hello kitty tattoo on his calf from Kayle.
7. Keep Pat's Pot's clean at next years Redlands Bike classic.
8. Limit cycling to Nintendo.
9. Sweep the entire course with your tooth brush.
10. Must beat the Redlands rider of my choosing on a one lap loser leave town race.

Once a month I check the Team Redlands Google results. I like to see how the unofficial blog stacks up against other community interests with the name Team Redlands in the title.
Last month the Unofficial blog was once again listed first ahead of such things as the Classic , a swim team , something soccer related and of course of the Official Team Redlands.com site.
It appears that more traffic may have been generated by a Redlands daily facts article that guided readers to the Unofficial blog as link for local cycling. Velo news watch out. Now I am not an english major but are the words "VERY UNOFFICIAL" really not clear enough ?
