Playing For Keeps



Whoever said that mountain bikers don't have style, hasn't met Brian "The Ladies Man" Fuentes. The Mexi-Stash/Blueblocker combo is making a comeback and Fuentes is leading the charge.



Instead of going "National" and heading out to Sonoma, I went back to my roots and hit up Colorado's local series. It reminded me of "how I got started" in this sport, camping out every weekend with friends and bouncing from one end of the state to the other. We rarely crossed the state's border but we were exploring nonetheless. Cheers to every state's local scene and to those who don't forget their roots.



After a little regional confidence boost at Snowmass, Ranno and I saddled up in the "Bumping Touareg" and headed to Denver to make an appearance for JBL at one of their car audio shows. It is a tough job but someone has to do it...



I thought the Touareg was making me deaf.... Apparently there is always someone out there that has to "one up" you. Talk about a reckless abandonment for one's hearing. Speaking of reckless abandonment.... check this out.



At 6'4" Ranno could barely climb up into the haus....



In typical American spirit, if one is good.... Then eight is great. It takes something like eight alternators to power this guys stereo system. I am at another loss for words, mainly because I am still hearing static.
