Shoot For The Fences



Interstate I-80 can be summed up in four, very American words; Slots, Beer, Tobacco, and Fireworks. Every gas station is fully equipped and every citizen proud. Tomorrow I will land oceanside in Monterey California and stake my claim, as I get fired up for the Sea Otter Classic. You know, life would be a whole lot cooler if mountain bikers got tour buses....



Yesterday I joined up with Team Maverick to rip some local single track before venturing westward. Mike "on the rivets”" West never ceases to amaze me. Words cannot begin to explain this cat'’s riding style. Just when you think he is about to pull out another "“Beloki"”, he breaks through his 45 mph skid and sticks it, 99/100 times.

Note West'’s trademark setup, barends on the mtb riser, function over fashion? Discuss....

For your at work viewing pleasure I bring you the ultimate in urban assault.
