Short For Radical

Rad: adj. Slang, Excellent; wonderful. [Short for radical.]

There are many reasons why "Rad" Ross has earned the title "Rad".... I could go on and on.



Exhibit A



Exhibit B

Then, last weekend at the US Cyclocross Grand Prix here Boulder, a week after his beer binder in Germany, without ever doing a cyclo cross race before, he manages to scape his way into 13th at one of the biggest cross races in the US.... punk.



Check out this video of Wells (who only beat "Rad" Ross by minute) teaching Ross how to mount/dismount.



One of these days, somone will end up in the drink.... until then, we will just keep saying "you first".



Live To Ride..... Ride To Death, pretty much sums it up.

I about had a moment last time I walked across that log. The creek crossing is rideable now that the water is down. Still gets your feet wet, though.

My Grandma has that same tattoo.
According to family legend "Rad" Ross inked it with nothing but a live squid and a rusty fork.
