blogging mania

this is about the funniest paragraph i've seen in awhile,
a short FYI, ron lindley from provo invented super D, if you dont know this guy hes been around the mtn bike racing world since before me, hes like 50 or something now and when i was 14 racing for the first time he was a local expert ripping it up with stenger, smedley and the late rich perrier. over the past 10 years hes been mostly running a few local mtn bike races mostly now super d's and dh events.


he showed it to team big bear awhile back like 10 years ago and they put it in the nationals. but ryan here writes this gem.


pretty good and read the whole story here

I read a post in Kathy Sherwin’s blog about one of her Super D events last year where they had to lie down, get up run to a cone, grab their bikes run back to where they started, drop the bikes off, run back to the cones then back to their bikes and started racing. Ya, I did this crap in middle school and got a ribbon for it….jack tards.Utilizing a lemans start adds no value to the Super D event. If you look at the more epic Endurance Downhill (Downieville-type) events, even those that are 2-3 times longer than the average NORBA Super

i agree, it is pretty lame. but funny

The text in blue is Ron's comments, not mine. That blog is a bit deceiving I guess, but I thought I said in the first sentence that I received an email from him.....

My meth hasn't kicked in obviously....

Thanks. Ron's a cool guy and I wouldn't want to take any props away from him at all. I totally forgot that he was the founder of the whole Super D idea until he sent that email the other day.

It's all good.

28 minutes....that's insane.

Sounds like you're the founder of the Super C(limb) race. Hit NORBA up with the idea. Then they'll add some grab assing at the start and ruin the whole thing.

They have grab ass at NORBA again I may start trying to race mountain bikes again. just stop after the grab ass though.
