Not very incognito


This morning I get an email from Ueyn, a former regular of our Tuesday/Thursday-morning rides, letting me know that some guy from Texas was in the area yesterday and rode up Old LaHonda 30 seconds slower than Kevin.

For those unfamiliar, "Juan Pelota" is the name of Lance Armstrong's ranch in Texas. And "Juan Pelota" did a smokin' 110 mile Palo Alto-Santa Cruz loop, including the 2nd-best-time on Strava up Mt. Charlie. No biggie, except that it was on a Trek Speed Concept time trial bike!!! You don't climb on a time trial bike. Unless you're Juan Pelota. In which case you climb very, very well indeed (after a "slow" warm-up on Old LaHonda anyway).

Warning: Next section rated PG: Regarding "Juan Pelota", the name isn't random. "Pelota" is "Ball" in Spanish. "Juan" sounds a lot like "one." And one certain famous cyclist who went through testicular cancer had one of his two testicles removed.
