Trump and Sanders Weigh in on PBP

Editor’s note:  Special coverage of the presidential primary elections is brought to you by our man in the Granite State, Rupert Smedley.

Republican front runner Donald Trump made off the cuff comments about PBP and randonneuring as he watched a passing NERd eagerly unseal an A4 envelope from the Audax Club Parisien.

“Wow. Paris-Brest-Paris…that’s a big ride. I think…I think it’s really great. You have to think anyway, so why not think big? And look at that medal… it’s H U U U U G E !

The NERd proudly showed off a well earned PBP medal.


Asked if he still believes Paris is located in Germany, Trump offered a firm “Yes, of course it is” holding up the envelope from Audax Club Parisien as proof. “Just look at this! It’s got Deutschland and Deutsche Post written all over it!”

“Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest…and you all know it!”

“You know, PBP is a lot like the presidential election. It only happens once every four years, and the best man wins.”

Hillary Clinton was unavailable for comment.

Meanwhile, the Sanders camp also voiced strong opinions on PBP and randonneuring in general. Bernie favors an outright ban on the allure libre style randonneuring practiced by Audax Club Parisien and promises to pursue an official policy in support of the group riding style of the Unions des Audax instead.

    “Bernie favors an outright ban on allure libre style randonneuring”

    “De chacun selon ses facultés, à chacun selon ses besoins” must be our new Motto, wait, I forgot French is now German, “Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen”

    Newsflash….Bernie has reconsidered his position against those one percenters unwilling to redistribute their efforts by selfishly not unendingly sitting on the front or not sharing their tubes or food with others. Bernie will impose a sliding scale tax based upon performance; moreover, any rider completing the Randonnee in under 56:40 will have all their wealth stripped away. Under 50 hours will result in a mandatory prison sentence of no less than 12 months. 🙂

    This whole election cycle has got me really thinking it’s time to renounce US citizenship. Only problem is my RUSA credit for K-hound miles. Anyone know if we can redeem our US miles for km in Canada? It’s my understanding that there is no one national randonneuring organization in Canada (comparable to say RUSA) but rather six different regional groups. Is that true? Don’t know how much longer I can take this…
