ND State Single Speed MTB Champion That's right. I'm the first state single speed MTB champ. And Dave Sears is the first state fixed gear MTB champ. After all the hype it came down to who showed up to race, or just plain showed up. I was the only single speeder, and Sears was the only fixed gearie. Oh how jealous Brian and Greg must be. I guess that's what happens when you move out of state. They'll just have to wait until next year to challenge the two best single speeders ever. What, you ask, did we win for such an illustrious feat? Hub pizza, beer and coke, and a live band doing a cover to Toto. That's right Brian, "Africa". We also get specialized license plates commemorating our titles. After we fueled up at "The Hub", we went for a victory ride down the greenway express. It was the best ride ever. THE END.

Where was the race held? Not at TRSP?

Congrats to both of you. You managed to get both first and last place in your categories at the same time. That's quite an achievement. ;)

Hub pizza? No burgers?!?!?!

Thank you. There was no need to race. The grill was closed because of the band.

Yeah, that was nice of him to lay down on the mat for me. It's so much easier that way. Thanks for checking in.

Congrats, Dave!

You're a heck of an athlete! I just started out this blogging stuff, too. Check out http://triwarriortraining.blogspot.com . I think that should work. We need to hook up this winter or spring. Keep in touch, Rick

Thanks Rick. Great to hear from you. We'll have to get some base miles in together this winter/spring. Later. Dave.
