Riderturbo - flying very low since the successful passing of his pilots licence - has not been seen outside the comfortable confines of his princess square flat since the leaves began turning 6 weeks ago. The short race in prosecco was tailor made for the ranch's lead sprinter - who pulled his own impersonation of NoShow -which we could all endorse given the new demands of riderbabyzoe - but were astonished to learn that mamma and baby were seen loitering in boulders own colorado multi sport that same weekend - that could only mean riderturbo pulled a version of 6th grade "gee mom - i dont feel very well today" - skipped the race - and smugly spent two days alone free from baby - mamma - and prosecco. Maybe he doesnt want to tarnish his last result - top 10 windsor triathalon which this blog highlighted in July. We can only hope that the 2 days alone wern't spent designing a fast tack reading program for 4 month old zoe - as the last time we saw old riderturbo was when he was nailing as sign above zoe's crib entitled "cornell or bust".

Owing to a bunch of nay sayers asking for additional proof of appearance. We dug deep to find this shot of the NOSHOW the eve before the grand fondo del prosecco. Displaying the grab bag goody of prosecco's finest salami - together with a bone fide race number - riderNOsHoW is all grins. Fielding abuse from such unexpected sources as Riderpitts's mother shirley - who when introduced to the NOShow - said - "now what are the fellows going to call you - im disappointed". We leave this post by reflecting on the old adage that one race does not make a season - which is just as true for a nickname.
