Over 30 years old? Fat and stuck at a desk job?
Given up hope of turning pro?

Shake it off and work hard, you sissy


Gotta love the guy's determination. Cervélo just signed him. He's 35 btw :)

EDIT: raise your hand if you looked at the topic's title and thought "bot spam" :D

Hand up - I was about to come in and rip you a new one. Instead, I get a guy almost my age who was fatter than I am, and now is 35 lbs lighter than I am and riding as a pro. Could be motivational, but more just makes me feal pathetic.
