Crash 5's

r5 has some road rash and palm burns to work on...
We'll continue with your regularly scheduled 'bagger baggin real soon.


  1. "The Story of R5" a Synopsis:
    One day in a small midwestern town an obese mommas boy who lives in a po-dunk suburban basement environment , decides to race bikes in the local road/cyclocross race scene only to find his place in it as a Cat 6 doesn't exist. So from this moment on he goes on a blogging rampage and calls out all of the local lance wanna be's and euro fetish cat 4 DHEA Roid dopers for baggin on folks who just want to try racing for the 1st time. The affects from this blog tear through the big ego's of the small pee pee bike squads and start local man hunt headed by the likes of team 360 and the Bike Cartel of Bill Marshall (sp?) This only builds the folklore legend of R5 to keep up his mission but in his moment of triumph he has a a horrific bike accident and disappears into obscurity. But he says " I shall return" as general macarthur said to the Philippines in WWII.. He return with a hailstorm of truth, tornados of speed and pure dread for all of the ROID BAGGERS...

  2. dewd, that was funny

  3. Spring Fling is upon us. I foresee long walks on fresh sand soon...

  4. I thought people were avoiding putting full names on this site to prevent any repercussions professionally, through a name search. I know everyone has a right to their own opinion, but lets keep full names out of it, unless someone choses to sign a comment with their full name and in that case, they can be like Bobby Brown - ♫ "really don't care
    that's my prerogative" ♫

  5. "They say I'm crazy
    I really don't care
    That's my prerogative
    They say I'm nasty
    But I don't give a damn
    Gettin' girls is how I live"

  6. Hey S.C. why don't you go back to jerking yourself off to that blog of yours?

  8. Sandbagging describes someone who underperforms (usually deliberately) in an event. The term has multiple uses, such as a driver who competes in an event in a series below their level of expertise to finish high.[1] In bracket drag racing and short track racing when a racer has a dial-in time / qualifying speed much slower than the car can actually perform. The term can also be used to describe a fast driver who holds back during a race until just before the end, when s/he suddenly passes up through the field to win the event.Origin

    Early race tracks had a safety wall of sandbags around the outer edge of the track. To convincingly qualify at a lower speed (and thus obtain a better starting position), a driver tries to appear to be running flat-out, but intentionally misjudges a corner or two, causing the car to swing wide and lose speed due to friction against the sandbags. He could then claim that his better performance in the race was due to learning the track.

    The function of sandbagging is to guarantee a win by outperforming the slower opponent at first, and then hitting the brakes near the finish line in time to just barely beat the opponent.[2] However, sandbaggers run the risk of beating their dial-in time, thus disqualifying them from the race. Sandbaggers must be experienced in controlling this technique, and therefore, it should not be attempted by beginners.[2] Sandbagging faces much criticism, as many argue that it is essentially cheating.[2] Television shows such as Pinks and bracket racing rules discourage sandbagging by creating automatic disqualification for breakouts. However, if both cars run faster than their dial-in time, the car that runs faster by the least amount is the winner.

    The term is frequently used in for deliberately qualifying poorly at short track racing events. Some tracks/series start the fastest qualifiers at the rear of the field and the slowest qualifiers at the front of the field. So faster cars sometimes deliberately qualify poorly so they have to pass fewer cars (and only slower cars). To counteract sandbagging, tracks and series often invert some of the fastest qualifiers and start slower cars behind them.[3] The number of cars to be inverted are typically not known to the drivers as they qualify.[3] Other tracks give bonus points to the fastest qualifier(s), which can drastically affect end of season awards.
    Usually, the sandbagging is used only in shorter races where a pit stop is not used, such as heat races and in feature races of fewer than 100 laps in a United States Auto Club or World of Outlaws event. In most races of 125 laps or greater where a pit stop is required, inversion of fields is impossible because pit strategy negates the need for the inversion
    [edit]BMX Racing

    USA: In BMX Racing, there are typically three levels of proficiency for amateur riders (ABA: Novice, Intermediate, Expert; NBL: Rookie, Novice, Expert). Generally, a racer is considered to be sandbagging when s/he deliberately avoids winning races, thus avoiding so-called "move up points" (which require a rider to race the next highest proficiency after a given number of races won). Sandbagging in BMX Racing is often practiced to ensure the rider stays at a lower proficiency long enough to compete in the NBL or ABA Grand National (held each year in September and November, respectively). This race is traditionally when year-end titles and awards are decided. Deliberate sandbagging is difficult to prove and, though track personnel have the authority to report such activity to their respective sanctioning body, disciplinary action or involuntary reclassification is seemingly quite rare. Sandbagging is a hotly-debated issue in the BMX Racing community, and is such taboo that "call out threads" are sometimes started on message boards to publicly alert others in the community of a specific rider(s) conduct.

  9. Its NOT Hip to Sandbag:

    Sandbagging: racing in a class that has an ability level below that which a racer possesses.
    Do we have your attention? Give some thought to the category where you should be racing in and where you are currently racing in.
    Is this the year you are willing to actually challenge yourself or will you continue to just be a sandbagger?
    Yes, rules are rules, and you may not have to move up according to the rules. But if you have competed in one full race series as a beginner racer, guess what, yourNOT a beginner racer anymore! If your finishing 10 minutes ahead of everybody else in your class, consistently, YOU NEED TO MOVE UP! Or yes YOU are a sandbagger. Racing should be about challenging yourself to your limits and if your sandbagging your not challenging yourself at all.
    Some benifits are that you actually get more miles per dollar spent as you go up in category. Also, if you look at the age breakdowns for those men 30-49, you will find that the beginners stay in ten year increments while the sports category is broken into 5-year increments. This means there is a greater chance for you to podium.
    So just what is the difference? In most cases it is simply a bit more time racing. This is certainly true comparing sports and beginners. Race time for beginners is about 60 minutes; race time for sports is about 90 minutes. Sometimes, depending on the terrain, expert riders will be doing a more challenging course. Expert riding time is about 120 minutes.

  11. Total hate for love,

    If that's how you feel, why don't you use your real name then?
