Hard Core

At the Stoughton/Viking Cross race there were three guys who dragged snow by the bucketful from behind the ice arena, (the Zamboni dumped it there), to the skate park about a hundred yards away near the cross race. They wanted to snowboard on it. I shot some video of them and commented that they were hard core snowboarders. Then it dawned on me that we are pretty hard core bike racers too. It's 30 degrees windy and snowing and were all out here riding our bikes. I just wish it had snowed more during the race. I think the snowboarders would argee with that senitment.

I borrowed a singlespeed (thanks Gus) and did the state championship race for my singlespeed debut. I achieved my goal of not getting lapped by Ronsta who won the race. I guess I did o.k. considering the competition. There were some really fast guys there. It was a blast.

Jeff, that clip you were in for the MyFox Investigators was excellent. As I watched it I knew I had to share what I'm doing with you.

Like you, I can't seem to get a ride in without a close call. I decided to do something about it a few months ago and decided to design a jersey with a simple request on the back: "3 feet Please". The response to this jersey has been amazing and I am hoping you will find it worthy to mention my campaign on your blog. You can see the jersey at www.3feetplease.com

Let me know what you think...and I'm going to try and place your clip on my site.

Thank you,
Joe
