Cycle Chick Joins The Dark Side
I am pleased to announce I have officially surrendered to the power of the Dark Side. I was told resistance was futile. They were right.
As you may know, I have been hobnobbing with the good folks at the Fort Garry Bike Club and Red River Racing since becoming entangled in the devious and ambitious plot that became Dark Cross. FGBC and RRR are in many ways the same club, although some would argue different. As with all of the other bike clubs, there are far more boys than girls. Thankfully boys don’t really gross me out anymore.
One thing is certain, they are a group of people that, along with the good folks at the Olympia Cycling Club, work incredibly well together to put on some great races (both on and off the MCA grid) – like tonight’s team time trial for example. And they always put as much emphasis on good times as they do on racing. Simply, they are good people who like beer, bikes, chips, and racing as much as I do.
More importantly, they understand the importance of looking one’s best, even when covered with dirt, sweat, blood and snot. FGBC has always had what some would call the Sweetest Jersey in the World, which was made a bit sweeter when I helped them improve some crappy resolution issues last year. Shorts were added, thus creating the Sweetest Kit in the World. Drunk with the possibilities, we then embarked on the Sweetest Wool Jersey in the World (or the Sweeterest Jersey in the World), which followed on the cozy wool heels of the Sweetest Socks in the World.
At this juncture, in addition to firing up the Dark Cross hype machine, we are developing the Sweetest Skinsuit in the World, which will also serve to introduce the world to Dark Red Racing – the official new race team of FGBC and RRR. Rest assured it will be Dark. And Red. And very likely rad as well. Hopefully rad is slimming.
If all of that that wasn’t incentive enough, they have also promised I can wear my Princess Leia costume whenever I want.
Why are you not wearing the socks in either of those pictures?
I am wearing socks in the first one, although admittedly they are not the Sweetest Socks in the World, and therefore do not match. You are very astute G.
Unfortunately I do not have any socks that match the second outfit. Yet.
Anger, fear, aggression . . . the dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.
I have asked my better half if we can race at Tinker Creek Back 40. YOU ARE A VERY BAD INFLUENCE. 🙂
I see a lot of beer and chips in my destiny.
Never underestimate the power of The Force. : )
I thought you were already on the FGBC team? Or are you like all the other posers kickin’ around who have those cheap, fake FGBC jerseys? There are a lot of the jerseys out there, some of them have probably fallen into the wrong hands. I can see why a new team name and kit is necessary.
Congrats, you will certainly fit in just fine.
You mean those ones with the fake Chinese writing that says “Pop Tarts”? Yeah, cheap offshore knockoffs. Don’t be fooled.
No, not those ones. (I’ll explain in person some time.)
Kevin, you have to relax buddy.
Congrats Cycle Chuck on joining the Dark Side. You’re in good company with those kids.
Woops. I meant chick.
CC, off topic here but since you are Canada’s premier designer what happened to the Olympic teams uniform? Could the word Canada be any larger and its split with the zipper so it reads as tow words??? Kacky pants and red sweater or is it a hoody?
I know the US is not much better with the preppy Ralph Lauren look. Ok now back to cycling.
