With Garcia injured, cobble team enters tour

Written by lastplace1414 at 23:08 24/4-2019

  Garcia took a heavy fall in Vilcea, which robbed him of a chance at victory. "I got too excited. Sometimes excitement hurts later."
  With the British champion at the massage parlor, the cobbling squad will go down to the Duck Lake Tour in Brazil, where they will try their best to learn all the Portuguese curse words. "Do I know any yet? No," says Spalding, "but I imagine I might by the end of the race."
  And who better to captain the squad during the Duck Tour, than Mr. Vuong Dúc The?
  The team will naturally be traveling to South America via their traditional/customary method, catching a ride in Magical Merlin Raley's hot air balloon, because buses don't cross the Gulf of Mexico very effectively.
  You didn't think I'd end the PR with a callback to OCM lore from like 7 IRL years ago, did ya?
