Congrats, Thank Yous and Random...
First- congrats to KoKo and Double-K on the birth of their son Harrison today. I've been promised video of water breaking to post, but I can't imagine that Double-K is aware of that. Welcome to the world Harrison (hence forth known as H-Dawg).
A BIG Thank you goes out today to team Bikeman.com sponsors Panaracer, Jagwire, Slick Willy, Greyhound Juice, and Cyrious Java (coffee roasted by team member Chris Cyr) for hooking the team up with some complimentary products for 2007. Today was the day we got to pick out some of the great products that these sponsors offer us.
For sponsors to hook a team of our size up, is truly amazing and very much appreciated for sure. Thanks!
As I receive the products I'll talk more about them and why I chose that particular product. And of course through the year I'll give some feed back. I know my opinions aren't exactly words to live by, but hey it's another opinion you can use.
Funny. As the week goes on and the strength comes back to my arms, my Reba started feeling a lot better. It felt just fine this a.m., but just to be safe Tom is checking it out, changing the oil, changing seals, and I'm changing my travel to 100mm. So big thanks to T. for his help on that one too. Hope once he opens the fork up it still looks ok. Fingers crossed.
Ordered up my copy of 24 Solo today. Anxious to see this one. I also download some home video from www.fonsmtb.be of the men's World Cup #1 in Houfffalize. You can also read Adam Craig's race recap HERE.
In other news- Big congrats to Gerry Pflug (Freddie Fu/Kona/Speedgoat) on his 6th place finish at the Cohutta 100. Gerry is an fast as hell local racer, who pretty much kicks ass wherever he races. Use to work with my brother, but I'm not sure they're working out of the same place now or not. Anyway, congrats Gerry!
Hope to squeeze some riding in tomorrow. My hand is almost better. Basically just a sore crusty scab now. I just need to be able to put pressure on it during out of the saddle climbs.
Oh well, that's it. Later.
