Breaking News



Scope this... yesterday we rode up the Grand Mesa to the local ski resort. Probably the closest thing to a "Tour Climb" on the western slope, a 28 mile climb with about 5000 feet of suffering. Later that night while watching the channel 8 news we found out that there was a Lance Armstrong spoting on the Mesa that afternoon.... Goes to show you how worth while our news really is...we must have dropped him!?



Ever get that feeling like you are "That Guy"? Well Whitey took it in stride and managed to break a new record, getting 6 legit flats (one for every hour) and all in different places. "Umm guys, I think I have another phlat...."



We have been scoping this skate park out all week. Finally today it wasn't littered with little gromits, waiting to make fun of our super lyra uniforms and skinny tires. If you want to freak yourself out, try dropping into a bowl on your road bike... works everytime.



I have been at camp so long it is starting to feel like home. My little nest in the corner is actually heart-warming, I am getting used to eating nothing but elk and pancakes, I haven't washed any casual cloths in two weeks because all we wear are chamois, and I still don't know what day it is... looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.

Yeah, but not by choice, B-man forgot his helmet in a rush to get out the door from his Ice Box in Gunnison and drive up here.... I think his Dog Max ate it again...

Brian remembered he wasn't wearing a helmet and stopped the skate park fun.... he was horrifed to see the pics of him lidless published. Max does say he likes sweaty helmets.... better than other chew toys! but not as much as powerbars...or sandwiches...
