Fwd: SF -> Google: it's what fridays are for, yo!

ride report:

despite a furious flurry of feigned flaking via txt, 5 riders made the junction at Ritual for a caffeine injection procedure and thus via rain-slicked roads to the G.  undeterred and undispirited by wetness and wimpouts from (Donny) Osmond and Sandor (not to mention all the rest of y'all), the peloton hurtled down the peninsula, immune to its suburbanity, and absorbed Lucas (already hours into his usual ride) in san mateo to make 6.  congenial and brisk riding marked the remainder of the trip, with nary an attack nor sprint, other than the occasional faux green jersey points grab by Andreux (who was spotted injecting EPO during breakfast; no WADA present fortunately).  and as usual, ksenya worked on her form for the upcoming velodrome season by spinning in her small chainring for 43 miles of flatness.  forget about matching her rpms folks.
