Scanning the crowd of a typical cycling event we observe the multitude of dudes: with their guns freshly shorn and polished, their tanlines perfectly cultivated. They are ready to administer their enormous FTPs onto the race course. If we focus intently, we may be able to find a single female amongst the crowd – and even then, once we push through the masses to a distance near enough to converse with her, her treats from afar may be revealed to be afar from a treat. Once in a fortnight, however, a beautiful specimen will emerge from the mists, like the breath of a phoenix, playing from its ashes.
Thus we are faced with the impossible task of engaging one of these disinterested maidens, who not only has her pick of the litter of fabulously shaved, fit and handsome men, but also probably doesn’t want to talk to you, at all. But fear not, for we at VQ have unlocked the secrets to completing such a challenge. We now follow our brave hero, through this most daunting of tasks:
1. Relax and meditate on the insurmountable task at hand
2. Once you have mustered the courage, make your approach, “guns a-blazin” style
3. Fear not the fittest
We would like to thank our teammate, Frank Lao, for having the courage to display such courage. And to the women of the ECCC for putting up with his nonsense.
