Special shout out: Verg at Shimano

Is this photo a little ironic? Sure, I suppose. Instead of focusing on the fact that WE dropped the bomb on THOSE folks, instead consider the deeper irony of shimano, toyota, etc. taking over American markets in lieu of a total military defeat. Or just enjoy the subtle genius of the MS Paint.

Back on topic: I just wanted to toss a special thank you out to Verg at Shimano. Verg hooked it up at Sol Vista, and he's also one of the geniuses behind Eddy Merkin.

I forgot my camera, so I couldn't take a picture with Verg, but here's pretty much what Verg looks like:

Here's Verg van program:

Basically, what I'm trying to say here is that hippies suck.

Chaz mid-season update

It's been a rad season for racing so far. Lots of riding, driving, fast food, sleeping in cars, rain and dust. I've gotten to stand on two podiums, so that was pretty cool. Over the season, I've learned two very important lessons:

A) to wear your team kit onto the podium, or else look like a dork when everyone else looks official, and

B) when you do wear your riding gear onto the podium, whether or not you tuck your jersey in while riding, pull it back out for the podium, lest you have an old man crotch bulge

But, while I may have had difficulty dialing in my podium setup, my interview skills are still on lockdown. I'll be holding a few basic, intermediate, and advanced "post-race interview" skills clinics this winter, so drop me a line if you're planning to be on camera any time soon.

Bike check coming soon, but first I just want to say thanks to all my sponsors. Without them, racing would have sucked really bad.

Thanks Evil Bikes

Thanks Fox Suspension

Thanks Splat-Designs

Thanks Deity

Thanks Kool-Stop Brake Pads

Thanks Hankbuilt:

Thanks Gravity:

It's been a great season so far, and it couldn't have happened without you guys. I'm looking forward to kicking some more ass.


Chinese War Sword

Did anybody watch that movie all the way through? It was amazing? He decapitated two pigs at the same time at the end. Thank you Tony.

Did you watch it? All the way through? Watch it now.

Serious progression in trailbuilding

I've already started building one of my own. I've also started selling my downhill bike so I can build up the ultimate dual crown, skinny-riding, 4130 hardtail.

I am ready to progress.
