Oh so thats what those things are called...

The arabs that run the kangaroo gas station up the steet from my apartment use to sale those things. They would keep like 6-7 of um parked out on the front lawn i guess for display. But they stopped selling them a few weeks ago, because some punk cholos kept stealing them...

But yeah i never knew that was the name of those things. About how much does one of um cost anyway?

The state of road cycling is a sad affair. Anyone that watches any of the grand tours each year (Tour de France, Giro d'Italia, La Vuelta) are just let down weeks/years later by doping results/scandals. While watching some of the stages over the years, you can almost look back and see miraculous recoveries after the winners (Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador, Andy Schleck, Floyd Landis, etc.) have struggled tremendously on the stages before they make a breakaway which wins them the tour. Especially in the Alps stages.

At this point in the game, it only hurts the cycling community to make such a "shitshow" years later of Lance Armstrong. Is he guilty? Probably. Should they strip away his awards. No. It appears that the majority of riders were on some drug enhancements. Many of the runner ups to Lance Armstrong (Jan Ullrich, Alberto Contador, Alexandre Vinokourov) have already been found guilty at one point in their career. The scary part is that none of the drug tests that Lance or his teammates did over the 7 years came back positive for enhancements. His main domestique, George Hincapie, admitted to doping and he was never once suspected or had a false test. So if his team(s) can pass hundreds of tests, I'm sure other teams that had his former riders on it were as well.

- Legless cyclist rides for asylum seekers


EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Carlos Gutierrez passed out as the large blade cut through his legs — punishment for his refusal to pay a Mexican gang extortion fees from his successful catering business in northern Mexico.

Four men had forced him into the back of his vehicle at a local park before slicing just under his knees. He spent two weeks in critical condition and sought asylum in Texas as soon as he was able.

Now, facing long odds on getting approval to stay in the U.S., Gutierrez has been staging an unusual demonstration to call attention to his plight and to the thousands of other Mexicans who seek asylum in the U.S. each year from drug cartel violence, with little success. Gutierrez has been riding his bicycle through Texas using his prosthetic legs, talking to everyone he meets.

"If someone from Cuba or from Venezuela can get asylum, why not someone from Mexico?" said Gutierrez, who spent nearly two weeks on his 800-mile bicycle trek from El Paso to Central Texas.

U.S. law allows asylum for those who have credible fear of persecution based on their race, religion, national origin, political status or membership in a particular social group.

But Mexican asylum seekers have struggled to convince U.S. courts they fit in any of these categories, with approval rates running 1 to 2 percent. By contrast, more than a fourth of immigrants from other Latin American countries such as Colombia and Venezuela were granted asylum last year. Many can cite ethnic or political grounds.
View gallery."

Since he hopped on his bicycle in El Paso on Oct. 28, Gutierrez has been making his case for a change in the system. His journey ended Saturday in Austin.

Along the way townspeople came out from shops and houses to wave and talk with him during rest stops. The 35-year-old endured rain, strong winds, flat tires and fatigue. On the fifth day, a prosthetic specialist met him to adjust his legs because he was bruising and blistering.

"There were times when we thought it'd be best to have him rest, to drive him to the next town to let his legs recover, but he'd say, 'No,'" said Jaqueline Armendariz, a member of the support team for the ride to Austin. "He has a mission."

Gutierrez said he never considered quitting.

It doesn't matter, he said, "how grave your wound was. What matters is that you get up. I have no legs, but I am on my feet."

The U.S. Executive Office for Immigration Review did not specifically comment on Gutierrez's case. However, immigration judges have acknowledged in court that asylum cases based on fear of crime or violence are difficult to make.

"I believe everything you just told me," immigration Judge Stephen Ruhle told a Mexican applicant at a recent hearing in which the man described being targeted by corrupt police officers for extortion money. "But asylum is not applicable to cases like yours."

Some scholars have argued that many applicants should qualify under a looser definition of "social group." A 2010 report by the United Nations' High Commissioner for Refugees said people who, on principle, refuse to pay extortion could be considered a group.

Other experts say the threats to individuals have evolved since asylum categories were defined in treaties after World War II.

"Now, people are fleeing different forms of persecution," said Karen Musalo, director of the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies at the University of California. "There are women fleeing from domestic violence, genital mutilation or honor killings. There are people fleeing from drug cartels and gangs." But others are skeptical. About 9,200 Mexicans sought asylum last year, up from 3,560 in 2008. The increase has prompted some lawmakers to suggest that immigrants are using the asylum system as a backdoor way to stay into the U.S. Applicants often wait more than two years for their court date. Gutierrez's case has been pending since 2011.

Philip Schrag, a professor of public interest law at Georgetown University, said many applications come from Mexicans who have been apprehended crossing illegally into the U.S.

"Many come seeking employment but are not threatened," he said.

Gutierrez has worked in a burrito shop to help support his wife and children while his case goes through the system.

He said he has put his life in Chihuahua behind him.

"I'd rather think about the future," he said.
