Oops She Bagged it Again

tristina
Yeah, Tristina did it again and stomped the beginner 4's. Seriously, s/he should double up and do the womens field as well (I bet lil KRocket would smoke him). Forget the rules and the fact that he has way more than enough points to upgrade already. Look at who he is currently racing against and decide on how proud you should be to stomp the slow kids. Do "stand up guys" beat down on guys like this:
Pecker
Look, if you can ride hard for 30 minutes and safely clear the barriers while holding in the puke, then you can go ahead and get out of the 4's.

On a bagger scale of 1-10, Tristina scores a 12.

On a related note, r5 heard that the "first timers" race was a success. Maybe this type of event should be added to future races. Congrats to the dozen or so new racers who are now eligible to be called out!

  1. Hey Tristan todays groupon is for a half price facial you should get one!

  2. I'm surprised Tristina didn't ride the First Ever Timers race.

    Sandbagger defenders would see nothing wrong with that, since they have no problem with someone carrying FAR more points than needed to upgrade, still riding Cat 4.

  3. Has there ever been two consective posts dedicated to one bagger? Legen.......(wait for it)......dary!

  4. r5 will stop running Tristina as a lead story when feels he's ready.

  8. you guys just don't know tristina, he was going to upgrade but had to run and get tampons at the last minute, leaving his only option the 4's.

  9. I guarantee r5 has a blow-up doll with Tristana's barbie face and huge sandbagging balls that he motorboats his greasy face on every night. Some one has a tiny little boner for this fella.

  10. He must have a boner for him bc even after Rodger dodger gapped tristina at blvd by 2 min for the gold, he didn't get a second blog.

  11. Me and my buddies have our costumes for Jeremy's race this Saturday:

    I'm Moses Fancher.
    Teammate one is Rodger Dodger.
    Teammate two is Tristan (from the TriFail team).

    Don't punch us!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can see knocking him but to knock his team? U should get punched for that

    ReplyDelete
  13. I cannot wait to see those costumes. Will Moses Fancher be driving a scooter on the course?

  14. Given how most team agreements are worded, I have zero problem calling out the teams that these sandbaggers represent.

    If they want the attention they get by sticking a jersey on someone, they need to be held to the fire for sticking by their resident sandbaggers.

    TriFam or whatever they're called is among them.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The seven who voted not a bagger are undoubtedly his teammates....

    ReplyDelete
  16. "Given how most team agreements are worded..."

    And you know this because? You've been tossed off multiple teams for being a dipshit? You read it on the internets? You sign rider agreements on your local dirtbag team a super special 4? Dumbass.

    ReplyDelete
  17. How many have u seen where that jersey? There aren't 7 on the team.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is 7 some magic number? Portent of the beast? Wut do U mean?

  19. Whatever, those 7 are fuckin idiots. He's baggin and he knows it. Jackass.

    ReplyDelete
  20. If you don't have a problem calling out teams that these sandbaggers represent, walk up to there team and say it. Of course you won't. Which is why you rant about it on a blog. This blog is pathetic. As far as cyclocross has come over the years in this area, this is not good for the sport. There are different ways to address the issue. No sandbagging is good for the sport either but it's inevitable and there are rules and guideines for that. Take it to your official. Creating animosity among riders by giving people the ability to say whatever they want and not have to put their face behind it is going to take CX in our area in the wrong direction

    ReplyDelete
  21. Naw, people who take this far too seriously are no good for the sport.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Don't sandbag and you won't be called out. That's simple, right? Its each rider's responsibility to read the rulebook. Do you need the officials to adjust your derailleur before each race too? Maybe shake your little weiner off after you pee?

    You know you're WELL PAST when you're supposed to upgrade, be a friggin man about it and you won't hear see your name here...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Neat concept here. The Glenn Beck show for cycling idiots. Lots of noise about made-up shit, weak humor and threats of violence.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Apparently you yourself haven't read the rule book. Eligibility to upgrade with points is 10 points within 12 months. There is no rule stating a rider must upgrade after reaching 10 points. It's at the rider's discretion. Do your homework before posting

    ReplyDelete
  25. The only thing that is mandatory for upgrading is having BALLS. Tristina apparently has none. Fuck him and all his apologists.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh yeah - "mr read the rule book guy" - how about 2 wins is an AUTOMATIC upgrade?

    Ummm... yeah... there is that one.

    ReplyDelete
  27. No, but there IS a rule, and I think it's 40 points in a 12-month period (but I'm admitting here I haven't read the rule book in a while, and maybe it's been changed and now lets people race in the beginner's class forever when they should be racing in Europe), you MUST upgrade. The 'option' to upgrade begins at 12 points in a 12-month period.

    That's what's rattling people, when guys get to 12, totally wrecking the BEGINNER field, and keep at it, celebrating on the line, etc.

    Or, when they're actually Cat 3 CX, and racing Cat 4. We've seen that, too. Maybe you weren't reading.

    Or, when they're somewhere above BEGINNER in road or mountain, then enter Cat 4 CX (that's prohibited by the USAC rules). Maybe you didn't read that.

    You know what? This isn't hard. Go to crossresults, and look at the "category" tab. You'll see lots of people who've "catted up," and are racing higher categories. That's cool! You'll see people whose names you don't even recognized, maybe this is their first season. Hey, look, they catted up, or they're racing 3-4 or Masters and they're Cat 4. This is cool!

    Hey, look at the dudes who probably run the 100 at Special Olympics at Juco in the summer, and proudly display their medals! That's not cool!

    Neither was that statement by me. But then again, you don't know who I am. And I don't know who you are. All we know for sure is, this blog is rattling lots of people, and if FUCKING SANDBAGGERS would just stop it, we wouldn't be here!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Did Tim Johnson race Cat 4 last weekend? Why not? He probably would have won a cool prize.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Whether Tristan is a sandbagger or not, a substantial amount of the commenters fail basic reading comprehension skills:

    4-3: Experience in 10 races or 10 points in 12 months

    3-2: 10 points in 12 months (two wins is an automatic upgrade)

    2-1: 20 points in 12 months (two wins is an automatic upgrade

    Nothing 'automatic' about 4-3

    The categorization rules are here:

  30. Tim Johnson is not eligible for the Cat 4 race. Like it or not, Tristan is.

  33. Johnny Knoxville makes fun like that, and gets lots of money for it.

    At dinner, we talk about racing Cat 4 and putting our hands up in the air when we win. Same deal.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't say he's a great man. Willie Loman never made a lot of money. His name was never in the paper. He's not the finest character that ever lived. But he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Once again do your homework. Automatic upgrade after 2 wins is 3-2. 4-3 states ATLEAST 10 starts or 10 points in 12 months. Don't get me wrong he should get the hell out of the cat 4 race and either cat up or race 3/4s. Even though it's not a "rule", he has won his two in a 12 month period and legitimately accumulated his upgrade points, it's time to give the rest a chance. So give him a chance to prove who he is as a person and cyclist instead of continuing to give ur opinion on who he is.

  37. If a froggy comes up-a with his
    Satchel in his hand
    That he reaches in the front and
    Dump a mile of sand
    Across the rug, along the hall
    Up to the umbrella stand
    That you've been watchin' all the time
    Watchin' all the time

    And if a forest grows up
    From the dirt on the floor
    That the frog with the satchel had just
    Dumped beside the door
    You just startin' to get worried
    You ain't goin' out no more
    And it's confusin' to your mind - - -
    Just consider this:
    You can be scared when it gets too real
    You can be scared when it gets too real
    But you should be diggin' it
    While it's happening (Yes!)
    You should be diggin' it
    While it's happening
    'cause it just might be
    A one-shot deal

    You can be lost
    And you can wanna be found
    But keep an eye on that frog
    Whenever he jump around
    Just keep a-watchin' him
    You oughta be watchin' him
    Just keep a-watchin' him
    You wanna be watchin' him
    And see if he has brought along
    A little bag for you, rant!

  40. And I can say that at the end of the eleven months that this investigation lasted, I was almost surprised that I had ever enjoyed anything other than those rare moments when the judge would lead me to the door of his office, slap me on the shoulder, and say to me cordially, 'That's all for today, Monsieur Antichrist.' I would then be handed back over to the police.

  42. USAC's rules/guidelines/suggestions concerning CX upgrading, clearly permits and encourages sandbagging...which then makes it legal for USAC events.

    USAC's main concern is that you make it to the registration table. After they have their money, they could care less which starting line you roll up to.

    The one potential saving grace would be if they put a list of their "Administrators" with email addresses on the website. Then someone could kindly send them a link to this blog and crossresults.com, so they could request an upgrade for the sandbaggers.

    But, then it would be like petitioning your congressman and he/she might be getting some CAT 4 swag!

    Is USAC political?...say it ain't so!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Intellectual sandbaggers?

  44. "The one potential saving grace would be if they put a list of their "Administrators" with email addresses on the website."

    They do. Learn to work your internets.

    ReplyDelete
  45. So, is David R. the USAC "administrator" for Kansas and Micheal W. the "administrator" for Missouri?

    Are they our state reps?

    Maybe they could post a USAC statement of criteria they would use to make a "request" for an upgrade for a said sandbagger. Then we could use that as a "Rule" and this blog would be done. Pretty simple.

    Or do we need a petition with so many signatures?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Those are the appropriate people to contact for upgrading in KS and MO. KS has an Association, not a State Rep. They do upgrades, based on requests in accordance with the rules. Some upgrades are processed at USAC.

    ReplyDelete

  54. The use of sandbags is a simple, but effective way to prevent or reduce flood water damage. Properly filled and placed sandbags can act as a barrier to divert moving water around, instead of through, buildings. Sandbag construction does not guarantee a water-tight seal, but is satisfactory for use in most situations. Sandbags are also used successfully to prevent overtopping of streams with levees, and for training current flows to specific areas.

    Untied sandbags are recommended for most situations. Tied sandbags should be used only for special situations when pre-filling and stockpiling may be required, or for specific purposes such as filling holes, holding objects in position, or to form barriers backed by supportive planks. Tied sandbags are generally easier to handle and stockpile. However, sandbag filling operations can generally be best accomplished at or near the placement site, and tying of the bags would be a waste of valuable time and effort. If the bags are to be pre-filled at a distant location, due consideration must be given to transportation vehicles and placement site access.

    Commercial polypropylene sandbags will store for a long time with minimum care. Do not use garbage bags, as they are too slick to stack. Do not use feed sacks, as they are too large to handle. Use bags about 14-18" wide, and 30-36" deep.

    A heavy bodied or sandy soil is most desirable for filling sandbags, but any usable material at or near the site has definite advantages. Gravelly or rocky soils are generally poor choices because of their permeability.

    Sandbag barriers can easily be constructed by two people, as most individuals have the physical capability to carry or drag a sandbag weighing approximately 30 pounds.

  55. Sirs,

    I would like to join your organization. Do I need to send a resume? I have little experience with sandbags, but I have done some shovel work and am willing to learn.

  56. Haha WTF? So what ur saying is that sandbaggers are needed to prevent flooding into lower cats? Makes sense granted that's probably not the analogy you were going for.

  57. You know I don't think r5 is the problem with this blog. There is humor in his pics and well written blogs. He obviously spends time researching to justify his point. He atleast thinks a little before he blogs. He pushes the limits knowing where the line is. It's the idiots who cry first amendment and sit they're lazy ass behind the computer when maybe you should get your ass outside, train more, and beat those you rant about. There will always be sandbaggers. They are called that bc they pushed themselves to be better. Beginners are what make this sport and keep it growing. Sandbaggers cat up. The rest, don't ruin or deter others from the sport.

    ReplyDelete
  58. At the peak of anyone's form, with some success, no matter who it is would be called a bagger...
    Providing there is a category to cat up to. I see nothing wrong with enjoying a season or two of success, as long as that person does cat up. I don't see how anyone wouldn't want to cat up, push themselves even harder, get better and smarter. I would rather cat up, and get spanked then be a Kramer beating up on 10 year olds in karate class... just cat up.

    ReplyDelete
  59. We all remember what happened to Kramer at the end of that episode, if you baggers dont cat up then you better be prepared to have your a** beat by a bunch of little kids in karate outfits.

  61. It's unfortunate that something as pure as cycling has come to this where the downfall and separation of society in a common ground feel so insecure and inadequate that they must beat another down in such a vulgar and malicious fashion to accomplish what? The point is clear. It was clear simply by the original blog/blogs by r5. The point of this blog is warranted. The rest for the most part is pathetic.

  64. there should only be two categories, the complete n00b category where people can proudly learn to ride cx and become part of it all, with no opportunity for "swag", and everyone else. It would encourage people to get out of the complete n00b class, and everyone in it would know why they were in it.

  69. A boil is a condition where water is flowing through or under an earth structure (such as a levee) that is retaining water. Free flowing water wants to move to lower elevations. If a levee is stopping floodwaters, the water may be able to find weak points to enter. This action is called "piping". If the water finds a large enough path, the flow will become visible, and is a serious threat to the integrity of the levee. Most boils occur in sand, silt, or some combination.

    A boil is found on the landward side of the levee, or in the ground past the levee toe (the exact distance varies with local conditions). Possible boil sites can be identified by free standing or flowing water (other than culverts, pumps, etc). A boil can be found only by close inspection. A prime indicator is water bubbling (or "boiling"), much like a natural spring. Another is obvious water movement in what appears to be standing water.

    Carefully examine the water for movement. Boils will have an obvious exit (such as a rodent hole), but the water may be cloudy from siltation, or the hole very small. If there is any movement in the water, carefully approach the site, disturbing the water as little as possible. Let the water settle, and look at the suspected site. If you see the hole, examine it carefully. If the water flow is clear, there are no problems as yet. If there is no distinct hole, the water flow is not a threat. Monitor the site regularly for changes, and take no other actions.

    A dirty water flow indicates that the soil is being eroded by the water, and that could mean failure of the levee. A boil ring is the best solution. The idea is to reduce the water flow until the water is flowing clear, but not to stop the water flow. This acts as a relief valve for the water pressure; the water continues to flow, but is not eroding the material. If the water flow is stopped, the pressure will remain, and another boil will form.

    Ring the boil with sandbags, with the first bags back 1-2 feet from the boil. More, if the soil is unstable. Build the first layer in a circle, 2-4 bags across, and then build up, bringing each layer in. If possible, keep the interior face straight. Build the ring wall with the means for water to flow out, leaving a gap in the wall, or using pipes. Adjust the flows until the water slows, and becomes clear. Monitor the ring wall constantly. Raise or lower the height of the wall as necessary, maintaining a slow, clear flow

  71. Of course you will assume it's "stuffed" bc then that would mean you are wrong or majority doesn't agree with you. Of the past 3 sandbaggers, majority has voted them "not a bagger". Well then all 3 must be "stuffing the ballots". Why is it that everyone that has received a blog has never gotten on here and defended themself? Maybe they do it anonymously. Or maybe in fact they it's just not worth it to them. How would anything they say change the opinion? Neither of the prior two have catted up yet? Both have continued as 4s and raced since they're blog. So why such an uproar about this one? Moses sits at 34 points as a 4. Dodger is at 23. Tristina is at 16. Therefore it's not points. Experience? Moses 27 races. Dodger 12. Tristina 20. Questionable but not substantial enough to justify. Age? Moses 52, Dodger 44, Tristina 26. Huge difference in age. Then it's respect for elders? If you're young you're an easier target? What's left???? Team? Both local cycling and volker sponsor races therefore you don't want to piss them off or you fear numbers? Please understand I'm not disrespecting any of the teams or racers but rather searching for and understanding of why because its obvious that no rules have been broken otherwise they would all be forced to cat up hence "atleast 10 starts or 10 points within 12 months" and "automatic upgrade after 2 wins" is stated in catting from 3-2. Of all the blogs on this site, none have reached this point. Why now? Why this one?

  77. Technically it's to call out baggers in the KC cycling scene. However, it appears that most of the bloggers here are mental and tend to go off on completely unrelated tangents.

    BTW, tristina be careful when you go for the hole shot this week. I am going to use you to keep my non-biking riding fat ass up right.

    Teams and the riders on those teams should police the sandbaggers on their squad. This is why a team can hold some responsibility as well.

Too many races, too many prizes, too many categories, too many racers, too many spectators, too many free clinics, too much course design and marking, too many volunteers, too much beer, too much food, too many bike shops. It should go back to how it used to be!

  101. I think it's great that the anti Republicans like teabaggin...... Is that what you
    fanta-size about while you are in line collecting your food stamps and other gov't funded programs. Probably why there are so many baggers in cycling. Tree huggin sandbaggers don't work, they survive on gov't aide, and the backs of veterans, and active duty military who gave them the freedom to ride their bike, sandbag for money or swag and then complain about how screwed up they think this country is.... In closing, sandbaggers are the root to all evil, and more than likely democrat.

  102. that's a penis reference, duh... your the idiot.
    you probably don't even know what teabaggin is.. Ask your friends, I'm sure they have all done it to you....

  103. Dear Anon 4:51,

    .."how screwed up they think this country is" belongs to the rhetoric of the Fox subsidaries GOP and TeaBaggers,Inc.: i.e."Restoring Honor","Retaking America","Restoring the Constitution" etc.

    We Dems feel America will remain quite healthy if you kids keep your corporate masters hands off of her.

  104. Mr.5:04 "Idiot",

    The term refers to testicles, not penis. "You're" is the correct usage. Fantasize is not hyphenated.

    Perhaps you mean "aid" rather than:

    Aide may refer to:

    A person who assists another; an assistant. In military contexts; an officer who acts as assistant to a more senior one; an aide-de-camp.

  113. The cx scene is KC is awesome. I'm sure there are a lot of racers who agree. You can sandbag, pick and choose when you want to race. There are one or two races pretty much every weekend. If you think the kc cx scene sucks don't take part in it. There are plenty of races in other states. Rock On KC CX, we rule...........

  115. "spellun n grammer they is not importunt on a blog."

    But knowing the difference between testicles and a penis in real life could be.

  116. I would encourage those that think the KC CX scene is "f*cked up" to choose a different hobby.

  120. Props to tristina for the costume today, but at the end of the day he's still baggin over and over again.

  121. The upgrade coordinator of ks contacted both rodger dodger and tristina asking permission to upgrade them. Both were given the okay to finish the season. Granted that's just hearsay. Then again he holds the power to upgrade them both prior to the race so there must be some truth in it. Seems as though it's gonna be a long season of bitching. R5 should pop his next blog out pretty fast considering he won't have to do any altering to tristina's picture. I was at the starting line today. With all the threats made, I didn't hear one thing said. So at the end of the day, I agree he's still baggin but chalk that up for a victory for princess tristina bc he rocked that outfit like a champ and no one had the balls to call either of them a bagger to there face.

  122. Dodger is not a bagger. Saying it again.

    Tristina is. Moses is, Cole was. This blog is legit.

    If upgrade coordinator contacted and said it was okay for Dodger and Tristina to finish the season, then I'll back off on Tristina.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Then you should back off. This is true. I've seen the email from David Romisch

  124. It's been said before and I'll say it again...USAC supports sandbaggin'. As long as you buy a license and make it to the registration table with their $$$ they don't care what start line you roll up to. If they did, there would be clear enforceable upgrade rules and not racer's discretionary guidelines and administrators that have nothing to base a forced upgrade decision on.

  125. Roger is BARELY out of the beginner category with just 12 total races. This is his 1st full season racing CX - give the guy a break and let him finish 2010. If he starts next year as a 4 - call him every name you can think of.

    Tristina, however is a Bagger extraodinaire in his 3rd season racing as a BEGINNER. Guess that means he's a slow learner? Congrats to Roger for beating up on a real Bagger!

    ReplyDelete
  126. 12 races as a beginner...Are you shitting me? You think its OK to STILL be a "beginner" with TWELVE (12) races...you are truly a dipshit, and Roger Doger is a bagger. NO SHIT!!!

    Yeah, seriously! 12 races?? Get a fucking clue!

  128. Have you ever had the balls to talk to dodger? He's cool as shit. Keep talkin. He's the reason why you have the ability to do what you want...race what where you want. Say what you want

    ReplyDelete
  129. So is there, or are there RULES concerning "beginner" or not?

    There's no grey area here. IF there is a definitive, saying who CAN'T race Cat 4, let's have it.

    I've said it here myself, what it takes to no longer race Cat 4, and been ignored. Somebody spell it out, if it's true.

  130. FOR WHAT ITS WORTH!

    here's my look on the whole bagger thing... Im a guy who loves riding bikes and promoting the sport. Ive been coming out to CX races since last year and even raced in 6 CX events. This sandbagging issue (in my opinion) is hurting CX in our area significantly. I personally have had 5 friends who Ive invited out to race refuse to come back because of the sandbagging. Maybe its just these guys, but I would bet that there are others out there who have experienced the same feelings. When I ask, "why is that guy racing the 4's race when he's a solid 3 and will be in the open race later"? I always get the same response, "OH , HE IS JUST DOING IT AS A WARM UP RACE"! Really? That very thing is preventing other riders from upgrading because they are getting smoked by the baggers! How would they feel if Tilford should up , smoked them and took their prizes, just to "WARM UP"? They would be pissed ! Newcomers get tired of donating their entry fees so some DB's can hang out in the beginners class to "WARM UP"! My advice to real beginners! Get out of the 4's and you will actually place better, I did!

  131. 5 new people refused to continue bike racing because they got beat in their first race? Instant gratification? Sounds like they wouldn't enjoy the sport much anyways. Good luck at friz!
