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.
