I'll be watching the wild accusations and endless baiting/trolling in the clinic and checking up on the bikes and gear forum. If the summer rain stays away I'll get out and race some crits too.

Its time to pump up the tyres on my mountian bike and head over to North Wales.

Then fall off badly and have my wife tell me not to be so bloody stupid as to go on black runs at my age

I'm glad that the season has finished. Frankly speaking, that would be great to wait for Puerto hearing and see what's going on with Contador, Bruyneel, Ferrari and Marti, but there's no time due to lots work and studies. From now on I'm totally focusing on APL and rooting for Arsenal. Never could follow both sports at the same time. So each of them has its half-year.

Hey, airstream, at least there's only a couple of weeks until you can spend four months cheering Dasha on to what I would expect will be a bunch of victories if she doesn't get hurt.

Unhappy Just gettin' fat now...

Here in Toronto the weather is foul, the roads are laden with wet leaves, my fendered cross bike has replaced my usual steed and there is no daylight to be had before or after work hours.

Suffice to say, the real battle is now winding down off season calorie consumption to prevent the "Ullrich Effect" come next April.

I already hate the trainer but know that it is the necessary evil to even show up at the races.

The only thing to look forward to in November is our team party at Blacksmith Cycles two weeks from now...

True! I couldn't think that such a southerner like you follows biathlon. Without Neuner, victories will occur in abundance.

Default Wine, not Alexandre

This poll really could use an 'Other / Vino' option.

Watch cyclocross races, train for next year, and buy/sell cycling items on ebay.
