The best I've been able to pull off: final crit of a stage race and this particularly arrogant thug of a rider was challenging his teammate's narrow GC lead. The teammate wasn't into the danger factor and had drifted back out of bonus time contention. The thug's team had lined up front and I managed to get behind him, making him nervous. On the straight before the last turn he kept looking to the outside/left (presumably where he thought I'd attack) and physically moving to pinch the curbline. He looked ahead; I dropped back slightly and yelled "Fred! On the left!" He looked left....
I took the bonus as did the guy trailing me derailing "Fred's" grand plan. I still get along with his teammate.

Nice. I always like putting guys in their place...if they deserve it that is.

I should have added what made him "arrogant": known local Master's gasser, won a Master's World's track jersey and had a website devoted to his coaching ability, complete with many pictures of his apparent glory. Road success had eluded him because his climbing was suspect; being bulky 'n all. This is not the same Master discussed in another forum string, by the way; a totally different erect choade of a rider. His teammate is a good guy and, while it didn't do anything for my GC or prize list; it showed what a gullible, wheel sucking **** he could be. You could hear the line spinning off the reel when he bit on that one....
