"Hi there, do you want to take the Optum Health Sprint Challenge?" Krogg slightly peeved about not race bike, so Krogg curious.
"WHAT SPRINT CHALLENGE?"
"Well, you get on this bike here, and ride a mile as fast as you can. When you're done you can go online and see things like your power and your speed."
Krogg eye tiny bike in trainer, and accept challenge. Krogg remember back to 2008 when Krogg SMASH similar bike-based competition, and win nice little heart rate monitor.
"KROGG READY! RAISE SADDLE HIGH AS IT GO -- KROGG ABOUT TO SMASH!!!!"
|Man give thumbs up (meaning start race0, but Krogg no see!|
So, man with orange jacket raise saddle as high as it go, and Krogg straddle little bike. Before Krogg even strap feet into silly pedals, man say
"Ok you're going."
Krogg not hear good, and say "YOU GIVE KROGG COUNTDOWN OR WHAT?"
"No you've already started."
WHAT?? KROGG HAVE LATE START? KROGG NO LIKE ORANGE JACKET MAN! KROGG NEED TO SMASH EXTRA GOOD!
Congratulations! You completed the KBS-Optum Health Sprint Challenge!

Well now Krogg torn. Part of Krogg want to thump chest and strut around! YOU SEE HOW FAST KROGG SPRINT ON THAT TINY LITTLE BIKE? Krogg SMASH! Other part of Krogg feel slightly guilty. Krogg professional cyclist -- Krogg should be able to win Sprint Challenge. Krogg compete in one-mile trainer race against general public, with no regard for thing like weight of rider, age, or gender. Person who try sprint challenge after Krogg probably one-legged woman in late 50's. Krogg asshole caveman for even enter Sprint Challenge!
