Re: “Know Your 2011 Kinetic Sculptures! (UPDATING!) (NOW WITH SOUND!)

I have known Tess since we where in preschool together and Sara since she was a baby. Tess is 18 (yes, that is considered an adult), she worked so hard on that tiger sculpture she had no time for anything and then when she showed up to finally get to use it she was told she couldn't. Try to imagine being a senior in high school and blowing off everything because you just really wont to work on this one thing. I know that personally I was thinking about my boyfriend, prom, grades, and a lot of other stuff but Tess was driven to do this which I find really impressive. Then after all of that hard work Tess was told that she can't ride in the race because they think her sister is too young and that she, Tess, is too young (too young to ride a bike but old enough to join the army). All of the politics of the race aside, why should it matter if a teenager, (Sara), is in a race when she is with her sister, (Tess) who is an adult? I would like to remind you all that Tess raced the past three years, and all when she was under 18, but know when she is legally an adult she is turned away. I'm sorry but she is one of my best friends and it really just pisses me off that this is being turned into some big ethical and political argument when its simply about weather a girl gets to ride her bicycle in a race she has competed in before and worked incredibly hard at. Don't you all see how stupid this whole argument is? Let the young adult and her teenage sister ride their bike! (please pardon my spelling. I am dyslexic but fulled by a territorial rage for my best friend had to put my two cents in anyway.)
