its opening night in the nba . jazz win, lakers suck, still. they stole fisher.
it was still a barn burner in LA.
baseball is over, finally.
nfl is mid season. colts pats showdown, i should head to wendover. the line is -7, for you that dont know what that means, pats have to win by 7 or more if you bet on them. if they win by 6 or less you lose.
im picking the pats to win by 10 or more. its in INDY, and i wont be surprised if it they win by 14 or 21.
this makes for some good R&R when the rides are over and its time to get horizontal.
atrain doesnt agree, but i dont give a rats ass.
other good shows i like
flip that house, how its made, runs house, hogan knows best, clean house, kimora, life in the fab lane. bear gryls, survivorman, whats with all these shows with house?
just noticed that.
chucky sent me this email today.

this endodontist today jacked me up on some heavy pain killers around noon. i couldnt feel my tongue and cheek till 7pm.
you see i got my tooth drilled on yesterday, i had this pain in my jaw that was kickin my ass good and found out i had abcess root canal hiding under a 20 yr old filling. i thought i had a high pain threshold, picture this. me up all night pounding the pillows with fists of fury. i was on the verge of stepping in front of a bus.
that sucks real bad, but im tellin you this cuz i feel like the days of old. i think, and chucky told me last year he had this bad tooth and it makes you ride slow. it jacks your system up nice and anyway i went riding up dry creek and felt the best since almost like june.
that was 4 months ago. i dont know why the power is back so fast but i wonder if its cuz i got that tooth fixed.
they take cash, and they charge a lot. a mouth full of pain, or drop the skrilla. they really got you up a against a rock and hard place.
nothin like canadian health care thats for sure.
the lady comes in, im in the chair, dying, waiting for the doc to drill this hole in my jaw and they wont begin until i pay up.
thats really lame, but its the american dream.
hopefully this is part of the solution i was hunting for. getting the snap in the step and the energy to put in 20 hr weeks again.
we'll see, and im hopeful.
as you sleep, rest and dream of me im on the road, white line fever.
veloswap is tomorrow and i got dead presidents burning a big hole in my pocket.
this is some mad jack

wells fargo is the worst bank in the world. not cuz atrain told me that. its cuz i went to 4 branches today to cash a check for 4 grand. this is not my bank, so i go to their bank. show 9 forms of ID, leave finger prints, blood transfutions, and phone numbers and address of the closest 32 relatives and they tell me they dont have 4 grand in the bank right now??? holy shit are you serious. "we dont carry that kind of cash on the premises"
i thought this ass master was joking, but he was serious. its a freakin bank, and this is 4 grand. its not a lottery check for a million.
i'll get into the rest of this story later, but its totally ridiculous to go to 4 branches of a major bank and get the run around at each branch with different reasons not to cash a check. i was so pissed i almost pulled an art and wanted a refund.
good times to all heading north, hailey, sun valley, ketchum. idaho cx. i'll be back racin with the on the go tecno next weekend.

i would suspect the foot hills to be safe from the hunt, up dry creek the orange hunters are packin heat.
up at the dry creek switchback this dude is dragging a 300 pound forken horn down the trail.
its nice out, there are a lot of bikers out the past few days. these arm chair athletes probably think they are "out in the sticks"
every 30 seconds a mtn bike goes by and hes dragging this poor bastard to his truck.
so i stop and hes eyeing a herd up on the black hill area. they are all over.
he didnt have the cart like the pic yet. he dragged that deer down about a mile. there is hair on the trail and a big hole ground down in the ass end of this deers hind quarters.
rippin the shoreline this time of year is the best, too bad slowran wasnt there for the smack down.
im heading to the world series in a few days.
mile high city.
i dont watch base ball. gardie does, i'd rather watch paint dry.
im goin to pick up some sweet deals at the veloswap.
yaaa white line fever.
hope the town isnt packed with sox fans. i cant handle that.
i dont know why im giving this up, this is too much fun. since i got the call from someone. i sent out a few pranks of my own.
optimus prime is at large.
call your pals, just dont put your own phone number on it.
or if you like napoleon check out the sound board.

lets set the seen, scene, whatever, me driving, gardie reading a cycling news paper.
gardie: lets go to my house and get an apple
gardie: youre the best, man. i love you. seriously. i love you man.
sly: thanks, francis, if i was gay i would want you.
atrain calls: ya hoes. ya g-love, ya cash. ass woopins.
sly: hey gardie do you ever talk to people all day and never get anything done.
sly: do you ever ride for 5 hours and not know what time it is or why you left:
sly: do you ever wonder how jon g and atrain are matched evenly on the cross bikes, yet one is 7 feet and the other is 4 feet tall. one is 100 pounds and the other is 200 pounds
gardie: yes (reading)
sly: you rock man, seriously you are so A.D.D.
gardie: thank you
sly: do you ever stop at the gas station on a road trip and eat a box of twinkies?
sly: no you dont, you are not even paying attention to what im saying.
gardie: yes i am (reading) thank you.

im sure you will see this garret, just keep hammering.
if you are ever in the big city, come over and we will show you some canyons with 30 mins of dh. hittin 60mph.
we keep our 2 min rollers in the valley.
Posted by primetime formerly known as slyfox at 5:24 PM
on a weekend that saw the top dogs fall, all over the world. you cant win em all.
even sven has to take the back seat. sounds like rmr tactics in dirt over in belgium.
ride in circles and watch guys attack each other.
make the course harder.
tree farm and wicks going down. thats the name of the game. everyone is trying to knock you down.
watching cx is better than watching nfl.
atrain wouldnt agree.

Now be careful, because as soon as you win, some motherfucker will call you a sandbagger, and besmirch your good name on some email listserve. They will go Googling your results for the past 3 years, all in effort to blacken your eye. This is all the prize you get for earning what everyone who pays their money to race dreams of doing, to win. You work your ass off, you struggle to get better, you focus your season on cross, you finally win, and then because you are a winner, you must be killed.
Cyclocross is a sick beast. But I digress, Saturday, the only reason I stayed in was the thought that by crossing that tape, walking off the course, I would screw not only today's race but potentially much of the rest of the season. As embarrassed as I was, I hate quiting. I hate admitting that I'm done. And as much I hate chasing points, some days, that's a product of what we do.
Posted by primetime formerly known as slyfox at 6:26 PM
same angle, 2 diff porcs.
just wondering what you mean by shimano free hub in the description of the product?
Because in the title you state that the hubs are dt swiss...let me know...also are the spokes dt swiss as well?

im soft, so i'll be watching with piotrek
ali goes for gold. this pic from last week, but forrest got some from today. i heard the week after 24 hrs moab is the time to attack bg. a guy juggling what he does has to have some off days.
check race results race 4 and 5 in a few days.
since this storm came in i cant wait to go south bound. there is a small town on the border called
santos hor hay.
sooner than later, but in a few days it will be back up to 60.
i need a new bike.
i just tried to drive up big cottonwood.
that was a mistake.
its 22 degrees at 8500 feet.

im trying to figure out how to leave sound bites on here, like on the player but i have this long belch that sounds pretty good i want everyone to hear it.
i got this from kday, its just up my alley
all anonymous comments will be deleted, THANK YOU
i just rode a bike with avid cable disc brakes. those are worst peices of garbage on the planet.
no wonder people cant rip on the dh, they have crappy brakes.
if you have some on your bike sell them and get avid hydraulic ultimate. you will be able to haul more ass than you can even dream of

then the power flowed like no other.
i could do no wrong, its one of those magic days on the bike were its no pain and you rip it.
and the next day, the tomes felt the same way. 4 min win. frishy 2nd, ned, don myrah and weins all in the top 5.
these were the days before dopers.
the history lesson is:
i learned 2 things that day.
5 weeks before that i broke my collar bone. i though i wasnt going, it forced me to take 3 weeks off of riding, after that i did 10 days of riding, 4 days of hard stuff and it makes you take time off.
2nd is 1st place guy had a new manitou that just came out, like the one on tomacs bike in the picture.
he rolled away from me on the dh, 1 minute 20 on the dh gained. technology over a rigid fork. it was faster and i lost.
rip the dh or lose.

in case you missed it over at barts or sagers page. i had to post this picture. its too funny, bart "throwin bows" as he put it,
with a dude and a penguin on his hat.
omg, thats funny, and omg is even funnier.
heres to the jack mormon militia the acqui berry team.
and right next to the blue and green mona vie kit is the biker edge kit of ryan blaney. i think i remember doing a night lap with him. jake p is right behind him and i see steve wasmund and bunch of other freaks.
that lemans start adds 2 mins to your 1st lap time and is littered with gopher and snake holes that can ruin your whole day
the funniest thing about the deseret news article is thats the local mormon news paper and they printed the "jack mormon militia" in it.
