SO GO CRUSH THE FUN METER.
I decided to hop on the road bike and ride to Glenwood Springs before the Labor Day weekend surge hit the high country. While chowin an energy bar and coke at the Glenwood Pool overlook, this kid comes by on his BMX bike and starts RIPPIN tricks. I think he needs a lube sponsor...
Perf Day in the Canyon
Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep chowin next to the bike path...
"Upper Death" Rapid on the Colorado River in the Canyon. Gonna get Jah-No-Brah and his Ducky to run this tomorrow. Vij @ 9
JUST AFTER THIS PHOTO SHOOT, RUMOR HAS IT SHE WENT OUT AND SHOT THE SHIT OUT OF SOME GRIZZLY BEARS TO HELP DECORATE HER COUCHES...GUESS WE KNOW HER STANCE ON CONSERVATION. I'M GONNA GO OUT ON A LIMB AND BET SHE DOESNT MOUNTAIN BIKE.

This is the view from my head, at the 2008 Colorado State Championship Short Track race at Eldora last weekend. This is both the 40+ and the 50+ Categories as they sent us off together. I consider these efforts "half a cross race" without the dismounts, you always either do or want to puke as soon as you cross the finish...this is part one.

Mike Vine just seconds behind Stoltz out of transition
Xterra Chaos about to break loose in the water..
Melanie McQuaid getting ready to kill it on the bike...
Shonny comin in HOT to the transition...
With Jen Smith hot on her tail currently in third...
Next time you guys and gals see Steve White tooling around the valley, be sure to congratulate him on just one hell of a race in Ogden. Steve was 15th overall out of 700+ racers, won his age division, and was the second fastest amateur overall. He was first going into the running leg until some young buck caught him and beat him by a couple of minutes to the line. Steve was psyched.
Josiah Middaugh was 5th overall and stopped by the SQUIRT booth after the race, he was pretty disapponted with his finish but is sure to be a force the rest of the season.

Rumor has it he could'nt pay his Tab at Fiesta's and sold the Bike for $50 to Hector and the John Tomac signature bull horns to Bagger for another $10. Hector is now ready to sell this bike to
the Mtn Bike hall of fame for his money back but can't strike a deal because they want $15 for him to
become a member first.

ONE ARMSTRONG WAS VICTORIOUS THIS WEEK AND IT AINT LANCE. I SAY GIVE IT UP FOR KRISTIN ARMSTRONG, WHO WENT OFF AT THE OLYMPICS TODAY AND WON GOLD FOR THE USA. WATCHING THE KIND OF LAME TV COVERAGE OF THE RACE (AT LEAST THEY HAD SOME COVERAGE) I COULD NOT HELP BUT WONDER HOW SWEET IT WOULD BE TO STAND ON THE PODGE AS AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST AND TO HAVE WON THE RACE OF TRUTH AGAINST THE CLOCK AND ALL THE OTHER BEST WOMEN RIDERS IN THE WORLD, AND TO BE ABLE TO LIVE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WITH THE SATISFACTION OF KNOWING YOU WERE THE FASTEST IN THE WORLD ON THE DAY IT MATTERED MOST. I GUESS IT WOULD BE ALOT LIKE FINISHING 8TH IN A TOWN SERIES RACE AND THEN CLUTCHING A BAG OF COFFEE OUT OF MID AIR THAT WAS TOSSED AS A RANDOM PRIZE AT THE END OF THE AWARDS CEREMONY...YEAH, IT'S GOT TO BE JUST LIKE THAT, I AM A CHAMPION, WITH NO GOLD, JUST A BAG OF COFFEE.
ON A SIDE NOTE, SOME GUY NAMED CANCELLERA WON THE MEN'S GOLD.
