If you ever find yourself wearing a TuTu - 'too old, too slow, too fat'... have the courage to shake that TuTu off like a Donkey shakes off something it doesn't like!
Give it a good bite and kick it in the pants for good measure, because a TuTu will never ever define you, you're too good for that :)
Nah, wear a TuTu, they go well with your legs.
I did manage one crash in the middle race too. I wanted to go on the right to go around some ruts and puddles but with an oncoming cyclist I was forced to go left, then tried to cross over the ruts to avoid a puddle further along. Sadly the front wheel didn't like being forced into a rut and I ended up on the ground. I have no skills.
That looks like the drilling contractor rockman came across a few years ago on site, late in the afternoon.
He's got good taste in Socks.
