God save the QUON, for nothing will save this current QM.

Unfortunately, this is the state in which Team QUON and the Blog (if we had one) stands. Current QM Zany Terra has done absolutely nothing lately, too afraid to upset or tread on any local cyclists toes and is too worried about keeping everyone happy. The Elders have spoken (behind his back of course) and an overthrowing may be nigh. Which QUONer will step up and save our great brethren?

As you may know the @TeamQUON blog always tries to be informative and educational so that our followers depart from the blog, enlightened and well informed in all facets of, ah, um. life.
As such, it has come to our attention over recent months that a number of cyclists within the Canberra Cycling community have begun to train on their race wheels (Oxymoron intended).
We have spent QUONsiderable amount of time analyzing this trend and have come to a few QUONclusions. People are doing this as they believe it is;
Firstly the uneducated understanding that being an A Grade HHHHHHHHHHHhhhhiter entitles you to do so.
Secondly the incorrect assumption that you have them so you should use them.
These two misQUONceptions are just that, mythQUONceptions.
Athletes and hubbards alike should understand that riding race wheels whilst attending a training ride do not make you look cool and fast. It simply screams out;
"I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET BECAUSE I CAN'T KEEP UP"
So next time you go for a "roll" with the race wheels on, whilst not racing, you probably need to invest in a pair of compression socks.
NB: Dodger you're exempt. High 5. Love rads

Team QUON sellout, Mitchell ‘Beagle’ Flynn, was visibly upset in Team Suzuki’s recent calendar shoot upon hearing news that his beloved girlfriend would be absent from the country in 2012 due to commitments with some dream team thing in Europe. When asked for a comment Mitchell responded with ‘M8, I’m full devo hey. I was all g’d up for a dece year on the road with the boys, hopn she will b hm wen I got back afta a dece training sesh behind the moto. But to find this out is killing me m8’.
After trying to make sense of the words and a careful reconstruction of the misplaced letters we believe he was attempting to communicate the following ‘Hi friend. I am really upset at this news. I was really excited for a fantastic year racing around the Country with my team mates. I felt safe with the knowledge that she would be home cooking and cleaning after I had completed a motor pacing session (which is where you ride really fast behind a motorbike). When I found out, a small part of me died inside.’
10 minutes after the photo shoot Mitchell had forgotten what had taken place and was back out behind the motobike. Happy again.

So - you're gaining a reputation for stupid behaviour on the bike. Evidenced by: throwing yourselves on the ground in bunch rides; giving team mates yellow cards in bunch rides; having your team race a nationally televised race only for all the teams riders to be seen sunbaking off to the side after 5mins; driving your own lead out train in to the dirt.
Q: What do you do to recapture your image?
A: You put an A grader at the front of C grade at the local crit races.
Bravo! Well played sirs. Your reputation will continue to grow with behaviour like this.

The 2011 Christmas Shambles organising committee has been real busy. Many a discussion has been had, many rubbish ideas thrown out, many goon sacks hung. What we can guarantee is one of the best Christmas Shambles since the early days of TQ. In eleven sleeps all will be revealed.
