Mitch replies with devastating rhyme power.....

Flying in a cloud,
Wrapped like a pork burrito,
about to devour

You, mountain man Dan,
Get turned on by Peter Pan,
Ohh Ohh Neverland

Dano out.

I'm all about this right now.

Rick Ross. oh shit!!

drifting corners is the new black.

sassmouth and i have been in a haiku shit talk Battle lately over trash, very stimulating i know.

Manbearpig likes trash
You only shoot guns inside
How does that scare him?


maybe he'll be scared
by religious waterworks
you could piss on him


I like your Haiku
Did you know, Dan is Half Jew
I believe I'm through

ah finally,

the cobwebs have been shaken off.

this weekend was the first since the fall that i felt like i was fast riding down a hill. i did basically take the winter off, which i needed. i knew ive been slower though cause xc guys have been keeping up with me lately. ouch.

no more.

we've re-soldered the connections, the coordination is coming back, the reflexes are feeling good again.

i wanna go to college for the rest of my life..

sip Banker's Club and drink Miller Lite. On Thirsty Thursday and Tuesday Night Ice, And I can get pizza a dollar a slice..

-asher roth

yeah i know its not that great of a jam, but it's been pointed out to me by multiple people multiple times that it pretty much sums me up. i have to agree, five years in and still a sophomore. but really if all you wanna do is ride bikes, drink beer, hit on girls, and dance, college is perfect.

in other news, a few of my boys are in town for the next week so I'm looking forward to riding with dudes who don't even know what a training plan is. we'll be around, come out for a ride and a laugh.

also, there are some races coming up that people should come on out to, mainly Clemson is having a dh race April 4th and red bull is putting on an event at windrock the tenth. i think that's also the weekend of the Brevard road race, so pick your poison and come race a bike. that's all for now, go ride a bike-the weather kicks ass these days.

what did the berm say to the head?


yep took one to the head the other night. maybe I'll have superhero powers now, you never know really. i mean scientists say that we only use like 10% of our brains and they're not sure what the rest of it does. maybe the hit flipped the switch on to kick ass at life... oh wait, that one's been on for a while.

anyways, spring break has come and (almost) gone. I didn't really go anywhere but everyone else did, which was nice. as much as you like your crew, its good to have a break sometimes. i stuck to my plan pretty well of riding or climbing every day and man am i tired. these old bones aren't used to that much movement. i added it up and i rode 15 hours this week and climbed for 5. that's probably more exercise than I've gotten in the last 3 months combined. its cool, sometimes life gets in the way..

on a good note, my hanta virus seems to have gone dormant in the past few weeks. I'm sure it'll be back, like i said it never really leaves it just takes naps.

also the first serc race was last weekend. I'm sure somebody fast won, somebody fast lost, but whats most important is this -

do you know that guy?


Luke is one of those guys that has been pretty effin fast for a long time, i believe he had a pro licence and a stars and bars jersey at one time, or came damn close to it at least. he's been out of the scene for a bit doing real life things but can still rip (trust me on that we rode Thurs) and just rides for fun now. its good to see people show up for fun at races still. and hey with that kit after Luke's done putting the 1989 beat down to sic vic and monster cox he can mosey on down to his local MS150 and blend right in.

Luke's the man, anyone that thinks their gonna "make it" should have a sit down with him.

I'm a rock soldier,

frecklin, its delicious.

so the sun is out, the air is warm and people are riding bikes. or running. or hiking. or climbing. as long as its outside is great. me? im sitting at the shop working, waiting patiently for time off. sitting and waiting. always waiting.

not that work is bad, i like not being broke, and this week is spring break, which means im going into the woods with my bicycles everyday, as opposed to the 1 time in the past 3 weeks.

wow. now thats how ya train. anyways i'm riding around on something new, new to me at least, and thats kinda cool. everyone likes new toys, especially when they're 24 pd slalom bikes. well maybe just me...

anyhow, heres my tentative schedule for rides this week, i'll be signing autographs for the first 45 minutes of each appearance, so be sure to arrive early so you can get a good spot in line.

sun- mtb ride in pisgah, followed by life living and goodtime funhaving. prob the hatchery at 330ish. hit me up and lets pedal.

mon- long ride from the horse stables at 9 am. yeah im getting out of bed, and doing something different than the usual, im thinking a squirrel gap-laurel mtn-pilot rock mess. get on it!

tue- no idea. lets do something fun!

weds- again, no idea.

thurs- heartbreak ridge ride! pretty stoked about this. 4ish at black mtn.

fri- clempson freeride brah broseph session. huckgnar.

sat- jesus is my copilot.

sun- ?

sprinkle it all with healthy doses of pumptracking, dirt jumping, and generally awesomeness and you've got the break.

lets do this!!!!

So lately I've had this black plague, feline leukemia, and Hanta virus mixture that i just can't seem to shake. I was talking with my buddy Kel at the shop about it and he was telling me about how he used to live in a moldy house and how it made him sick. this got me thinking, hell my house is pretty moldy (the bathroom at least) maybe that's why I've got the black death. then i went to work deuce the next day and was talking to the Old Men Of ACE about it and they confirmed my suspicions that it was the mold that is giving me the bubonic plague. they also gave me the recipe for a weapon of mass mold destruction. with today being 37 and raining out, i figured now was the time to rain death on some basic organisms. this shit was pretty powerful, i was instructed to wear a respirator mask (hello pink bandanna) and some gloves when i used it, and now the genocide is complete. we'll see how this ends up, but i fell like this may be the start of me being able to ride again and generally not cough up a lung all day everyday.
in other unrelated news TDS will be heading into Pisgah on a test run 2 weeks before the 12 hrs of Tsali now. J. Miles and i will be teaming up to race the PMBAR, which seems like a pretty rad event and its literally in our backyard, so representation is necessary. We'll also need to try out the new turbochargers and NOS tanks we've got installed before we get to the big show. we wouldn't want a disaster like this -

That would just be embarrassing.

And one last thing- a big congrats to Jami Perry for winning her first race, incidentally the second race she's ever been in. kickass!!
