Skander Joshua Anderson was born 19:24 Hrs on Wednesday April 15th @ St Joeseph Hospital in Tucson, Arizona. Weighing in at a lean 7 lbs 3.3 oz / 20 inches long. We have already started his training for cycling by helping him learn to push through the pain (aka to get his diaper changed).
Thanks to all for making it a great visit. Ride now, and drink beer!
The tour is a little over two weeks away and the team is finalized at 5 Pirates.
Chino, Brandon, Dave I, Des, and Dave II.
'Dave I' just picked up a new Trek 1.2 road bike from Race Pace yesterday. He likes the bike, but I question his motives for spending his money on a new road rig instead of replacing his aging hard tail. If I see his man-toe in Lycra I'm going to kick it.
April 24th-26th - 110 miles - Bethesday, MD. to Gettysburg, PA.
Face of America Ride
People. This is in our back freakin' yard and includes tons of beer. Even the trail-tarded amongst us could do this ride. Why haven't you organized? Why do we not have a team participating in this? Is it the $45 price tag? Like you all won't spend $45 on beer this weekend. Get it together people. Good lord. Don't let me down. This SUNDAY 4/19 (Tucson, Arizona).
urban assault info
Occasionally, we call Nate "Viktor"... though normally it's "Pescadito". He is a future pirate and just got a screemin deal on a new bike. Why? Probably because it is uglier than jesus christ humping a beef gordita with one eye on that stray hair and the other on the prize (if you know what I mean, wink). I digress. It doesn't happen often... but the Reverend Anderson is passing around the hat... taking up a collection... to help Nate un-feminize his ride. We need about $250 total. Who's got a twenty?
The work will be done by... Air Glow Bicycle Painting
Go to your local bike shop (LBS) and pick-up the latest issue of Dirt Rag (Issue #141). Then turn to page 88. Top right corner. You'll see a picture taken by the Green Lantern (aka Brad Knox) of McLovin (aka Derek Regan) going over the handle bars on the "rock" at the 24 ITOP course (taken a couple weeks before this years 24hr race).
