Alright, I have thought of many excuses, stories, and works of fiction to explain away the lack of a timely report on last week's ride. But I can't do it, I can't lie, so I'm coming out with the truth.
I was kidnapped by female Somali pirates who made me their sex slave. I endured 6 days of utter objectification being used in arcane fertility rites until last night the guard outside my hut had just a little too much to drink. I carefully lifted the keys to my manacles from her belt and freed myself running naked through the jungles of Walton county until a friendly farmer gave me a ride into Watkinsville.
Now I can finally write the ride report.
Wednesday, April 13, 22 Antelopes checked their shorts for transparency before converging on the Watkinsville courthouse for Stage 2 of the Antelope Cup. Many familiar faces joined the herd including Chris H, Terry , and da Beast with a derailleur and everything. Regional celebrity and junior prince of speed "lil' Cappy" came by to help inspire the old fellas to sprint just a little harder.
It was a chill spin to the first whistle when the antelopes put their hoofs in the drops and began locking horns.
1. Jonesy 3points
2. Dan 2 points
3. Ben 1 point
Lead out point: Lil cappy
The herd gathered and prepared for the Bishop sprint. Superdraft took off on an early and hopeless breakaway. The peloton gave him 10 seconds then began closing the gap. This time Chris H took a massive pull cranking up the mid way roller engulfing Superdraft and thinning out the crowd. Lil Cappy took the final lead out and at the fnish line it was:
1. JeffY 3 points
2. Spinmaster 2 points
3. daBeast 1 point
Lead out point, Chris H
With 2 stages down, Thin Daddy leads the standings by one point over Jeff "the King" Young. Ride report from today's stage 3 contest soon to follow, check local listings.
