Where’s The Finish Line?

A real conversation, only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Horatio A. calls up Todd to chat about his team kit order and as the convo concludes the unOFFICIAL TMWC comes up.  He’s curious about how it’s different from every other TMWC.

Is it faster?

Well, yeah it’s totally nuts… but you’ll be fine.

Do we all do the Varsity Loop?

No, we all do the original course… but there’s no re-group.

Do we race all the way to the end?

Yep, just like every week.

Really?  What about the 2nd re-group and the way we just cruise back down Antonio to the start?

Ahhh… well bro, the finish is not at the start.

It’s not?

Nope… it’s at the end of the Drag Strip, where the 15 m.p.h. sign is right before the right hander.

So that’s the finish.

Yep, there’s an old piece of tape across the road next to the 15 mph sign… and tomorrow I’ll be testing out the new timing system.

We’re timing the ride that day?

Yep, that’s why it’s the unOFFICIAL TMWC.  Plus, we’ll ride back together and mow down some delicious food and honor this year’s champions.

How the heck can you plan to win if you don’t know where the finish is?
