This Agreement made this 22 day of February, 2010 between Peter Tempest (“The Good Doctor”) and Chuck Van Drunen and Andy Stravers (“Young Guns”).
WHEREAS, The Good Doctor and the Young Guns have a bitter, longstanding rivalry over the GALLUP CUP (top local team at Dawn til Dusk) which until last year was dominated by the Good Doctor.
WHEREAS, The Young Guns are ridiculously competitive toward accomplished, senior Gallup riders like the Good Doctor and are always scheming to knock them off the competitive pedestal at the same time they try to borrow bikes and equipment from the very people they are scheming against.
WHEREAS, The Young Guns beat the Good Doctor like a drum to win last year’s GALLUP CUP and can’t stand to think that the target is now on their back and they are frantically trying to come up with ways to paint themselves as the underdogs again this year in spite of last year’s victory.
IT IS NOW MUTUALLY AGREED BY THE PARTIES:
- Sandbagger legitimized. Former (very briefly) Gallup resident Hadji Corona (Cat 1 last year but moving up to Pro this year) is eligible to compete with the Good Doctor for this year’s GALLUP CUP even though he is not a current Gallup resident.
- Whining prohibited. The Young Guns are expressly prohibited from whining about Hadji Corona’s eligibility if it results in them getting trounced at this year’s Dawn til Dusk.
- Indemnification against grievances by other Gallup teams. Young Guns agree to indemnify the Good Doctor and hold him harmless from grievances from other Gallup teams who have been insulted and demeaned by the Young Gun’s recent blog posts which necessarily infer that they are not even part of the competitive mix.
WITNESS OUR HANDS THE DAY AND YEAR FIRST ABOVE WRITTEN:
Peter Tempest (The Good Doctor)
Chuck Van Drunen (Young Gun)
Andy Stravers (Young Gun)
