Like A Rolling Stone

Angel Fire New Mexico, the latest stop on the '06 ridewithnickmartin tour, is home to one of the most raw XC races in the States. It is definitely a course that uses natural selection to define its winners.

Well today it was "Rad" Ross showing that it only takes a week to get in shape, holding off legends T. Brown and Ned Overend for the big "W". Unfortunately I got passed by Ned in the final climb to finish 4th (but I still managed to hold onto 3rd in the Under 50 category).

Ned is still out there making us young bucks suffer like dogs at the young age of 50 something. With legs like this it is no wonder I got dropped. Much respect!

The secret to Ross's success lies deep within the 24 inches of his prerace dinner. For $6.99 you couldn't go wrong.

BTW: Sager and I are still working out the guidelines to our '05 photo blog off so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out this video for your "Free Entertainment" for the day.

In other racing news, it looks like this weekend's World Cup in Belgium is going to redefine the definition of "raw", sporting over 240 registered lycra superheros in the Mens race and 150 in the Womens.

Let your imagination run its course and envision what will happen when you throw 240 men down a course that looks like this..... RAW!

Ewwww, i was eating my burrito when i saw Neds leg! I think i lost my appetite . Do you think Ned is like the Lance of Mountain Biking? To bad he didn't make as much as cash as lance did.
