A few weeks ago I talked about the frequently used term negative bike racing, and how it is a meaningless adjective.
Today I received an e-mail about that post, which stated in part:
Has anyone ever been accused of racing "positively?" As in, that guy gets my respect for racing so positively. And what would that be like? A guy who lets another guy get away and doesn't chase is racing positively?
I couldn't have said it better myself.
I now have a request for all of the bad ass dudes against whom I will be racing this weekend at the Tour of the Valley: Please race positively, at least when I attack.
