Tweets are neat but trending can be heart-rending. That's why I retweet it all so you don't have to...
Normally we set the trends, but this week's our first go at this, so here's what's trending: #Battenkill.
In Dan Netzer's world, it's time to chow down for the race up:
Tapering's well underway. Carb loading is in effect. Bike & wheels are ready to go. Bring on #Battenkill.
— Dan Netzer (@celeritycycling) April 11, 2012
Now if you're racing against him, beware! He's twice as focused as you are judging by the number of times he's tweeted #battenkill since April 5th:
#Battenkill weather today. Just add gravely climbs for a rip-roaring good time.— Dan Netzer (@celeritycycling) April 5, 2012
For Bomboloni Ben, though, it's all about meeting the (former) stars:
Doing Tour of the Battenkill? Greg Lemond will be at Battenkill Books on Fri signing copies of the Jersey Project book bit.ly/I6YGoR— Ben (@bomboloni) April 9, 2012
But that doesn't mean he's not ready, willing and all interval'ed up (and rivaling Netzer in tweet-quantity):
2hr ride and the last set of intervals before #battenkill— Ben (@bomboloni) April 11, 2012
Now it's your turn! Hook up with these racers in the Twitterverse and let them know you met them here.
Then join next week's conversation about #bikeracing! We'll scour the interwebs for the very best #bikeracing tweets that tell the world why we do what we do and how we do it in style. To the best tweets, go the best prizes: fortune and glory...
But, while we're on the issue of #bikeracing, we should at least let this guy know he's using a diaphragm wrong. I don't think it's meant for racing:
legs were willing, stupid cramping diaphragm was not.better luck next week i guess. #bikeracing

Regardless, set the #bikeracing trend for next week; we'll watch the trend and stand ready with a huge supply of fortune and glory for you...
