Rick and I went out to Turtle River yesterday for some Nine Mile training. Rick brought his 98 Gary Fisher Kaitai. A very sweet bicycle. I have dibs on it when you decide to retire it Rick : ) Anyway we did three laps in the 90+ heat with the heat index at 106F. Very sticky. Rick got the Kaitai dialed in and ready to rock at Nine Mile. Watch out Trent : ) Here's a picture tribute to the bikes and riders of old : ) Enjoy.

Dave; Are you in for sure at Wausau? Are you camping? What are you going to do for support? So many questions :)...I have several friends from Duluth going but they are all going for the 12 hours and so after 10:00 PM they and their support, I fear will turn to the dark side and I will be left alone...Charlie

Charlie - I will for sure be there. Yes I am camping. My lovely wife and the wives of other Brown Bears will be supporting. If you need help with support you are more than welcome to come over to our pit area. I don't want to speak for everyone else, but my wife and myself would be happy to help you out in any way we can. Send me an e-mail. I lost yours and can't find it on your blog.

Love that banner pic, Dave.

What do you mean "watch out Trent"??

Simmons said...

Thanks for taking the picture Trent!

I just meant that after riding with Rick at TR. You and him seem similar in speed. I should've said watch out Brian :)

Brian said...

You better watch out Vino. Trent and I might kick out your knees before the race. Good luck riding for 24hours like that.

;)

Good to hear that Paddy! I'm gonna walk to my bike this year at the start instead of taunting you to run faster :) I predict you and Dallas go one-two in the solo single speed category. Two weeks and counting!
