Tinea - yeah, it's off The Sounds new album which I've been listing to a lot this spring after loving their older stuff ("Dying to Say This to You" is the other I know but I think there is one more?). Some good tracks on Crossing the Rubicon
. As for the second song... I thought about using another The Sounds tune but it seemed tacky... but then I ran out of ideas
The classic German/EuroPop lyrics fit and it's almost so bad that it's funny and cool
... I'll post some updated (better) videos on some rainy spring days.
The "mate" that almost got hit by the "professional celebrity sports car driver" (... judging from his speed his MUST be good right, anyone recognize him? F1? Nascar? LeMans?) was actually someone I don't know... I don't know any of the other guys in the video. I was just riding along minding my own business like a good tourist and the Corratec rider and Burgos rider caught up to me (while taking photos
) at the start of a long 10 mile (~ 50 minute, 6% average, 7-10% in most of the video) climb so I thought I would "inconspicuously" ride behind them... and then we caught the next guy who they seemed to know. Then we caught 2 more guys (also on local teams I guess) right when you see the racecar driver pass by. The latter 2 guys faded off quickly and then the 3rd guy drifted back, then the 2 pro guys had to check a tire or something and pulled off to check on it 15 minutes before the top. I'll try to make better videos next time as I have some better footage.
As for the centuries, I'm not sure... I had a flat local route that was pretty easy to do in 5:15-5:45 depending on the wind. I actually was taking graduate classes on the weekends and working full-time (but had mornings free) on the weekdays... and I was in Spain for the summer and my regular route included a Cat 1 climb from the Vuelta that pretty much prevented any centuries for 2 months, but it was a great climb.
