I won one.

Fontana, no. Arizona, not quite. Santa Ynez, almost. Park City, nope. I had to go all the way to Windham, New York to win a National Mountain Bike Series Single-Speed Race.


Then on Sunday I threw caution to the wind and raced the Pro Short Track on my mono-gear. It was fun while it lasted.


Seeing that Saturday was a single-speed race and all, Longo had an ice cold Bud waiting for me at the finish line. It was the best tasting Budweiser I've ever had. It may have been the only Budweiser I've ever had.


A gang of us bike racers stayed at an inn in the Catskills called Kelly Acres. The owners made breakfast for us each morning and they even had the Versus channel so we could watch Le Tour.


I like this bike.


The owners of Kelly Acres have a yellow lab named Einstein who is allowed to attend the city council meetings in downtown Windham. Einstein is camera shy so I have no photos of him. The most recent town meeting addressed a disturbance in town because someone was running their tractor with the high beams on at 9:08 PM. Einstein will put an end to that type of behavior.


Kelly Acres. Go there.

Your competition looks like 12 year olds. Congrats anyway, glad I could help with the performance enhancing products from China.

did they give you the budweiser as a trophy? It looks like a can of bud-light.... or an iphone.....

anyways its way to small to qualify as a trophy... next time remind them that you did the race with only one speed and to step it up a tad.

congrats.
