Did someone say something? The wind was RIPPIN.
40-50mph winds with heavy snow? PERFECT. I've been told there is an idiot born every second, well, I guess I was that guy when my second came up, but damn this was fun.
Mountain Bikers should thank the motos next time they seem them out here, as the moto-heads are the faction responsible for the majority of the singletrack out in this neck of the woods.
With all this said, there is a new force to be reckoned with from ove Utah way that showed and throwed on Sunday. Team Cannondale pretty much crushed the pro field on Sunday, substantially, and appear to be the new force in town if they hold form. Young and fast, these kids made a statement on Sunday going one-two.Yeah, that's Frenchy, who else would it be?

Hermallini, Davis and T chillin, in sun and warmth, finally.
L Dubs at Spaghetti Junction, could not ride a mile without running into ALOT of people we knew, it was killer.
I drank two of these babies at the Longmont OBB on the eve of Boulder-Roubaix (which rocks by the way) and man they were delish, I'm not sure what it is about OBB brews, but man, they both kick and kick my arse, and that is a very good thing indeed.
This is how you sell em, get six people on there for a test ride with some rastafarian dude who just burned a big ol spleeeeefe. You'd make more money selling fresh underwear to the people who just got of this fucker after two laps with this guy driving.
Today was one of those really cool days, a couple of cycling buds from Steamboat made the trip over to Eagle today to find some dry dirt to ride which I promised would not disappoint, I do not think it did. And the day started with a rock solid posse of red and blue coats yuckin it up accompanied by the newest Eagle transplant Stephen White along with Tokyo Joe's very own Jay Henry. Throw in Jono and Colemansk and ya got a grouppo. The riding was off the charts fun, the trails perf, and I was REALLY hungry for BACON after 4.5 hours in the saddle today.
This vij came compliments of Dr. Watson I presume.
Then I came home and decided to go through an old back pack of mine, when I found these in one of the side pockets. "Kelloggs" Nutri Grain bars and a day pass to Abel Tasman National park in New Zealand. The story has it that myself and my girlfriend at the time had found this killer illegal campsite right on the ocean at low tide, which became our own private beach at high tide. When we decided to go swimming naked in the ocean the next morning, the "boat ranger" came in from about a mile out and asked to see our camping permit and told me he would not issue us a ticket if my naked girlfriend went back to the beach to get this park pass. To which I looked at her and replied "What the hell are you waiting for, go get the pass!"
That is a true story...
I think these are about 11 years old. Anybody want them before I put them on Ebay?
A place to come and hide away from life's daily bore, a place to smile and laugh....maybe even cry, a place to reflect on what's really important in life, where you go and who you go with....it's not about the pile of money you get to take with you to the grave folks.....your bank accounts should be a wealth of great experience and good friends. I am indeed a wealthy man. All attempts at humor on the site are just that, attempts. Most is untrue, all is purely entertainment. Larry G
