|George, myself and a blurry J in Orange.|
Dirt Rag Magazine (Subscribe if you don't already. You won't regret it.) for a very long time (Far more witty, funny and well written than my blog will ever be.). So when I read on his blog that he was going to be at the show I did my level best to keep an eye out for him. And lady luck was on my side because he passed by me. And I yelled "Dicky!" which probably scared him and everyone else in that particular aisle. It was really cool to meet him in person. Very nice fella and was totally pumped that he mentioned me in his latest blog entry! Thanks Dicky, your swell. I don't care what they say...
Jacques Boyer. For those of you who don't know who he is, shame on you. This is the first American to ever race the Tour de France. I believe it was in 1981. But don't quote me on that. He did it the hard way. On his own with European teams. Tough as a coffin nail this guy. He also is the driving force behind Team Rwanda which is helping to expose talented young Rwandan athletes to professional cycling. Great guy and a great cause...
Kelly Benefit Strategies Team. And if you haven't please go listen to his moonlighting exploits either on NY Velocity or District Cycling Podcast (Which is my personal favorite.) do yourself a favor and go listen now. I can wait.... See I told you! Also, he is famous for tweets on @Michael_Creed. So hook up with that shizz as well.
So that was the massive roster of the cool kats that I met at Interbike this year. And one resounding thing occurred to me while I was having these pictures taken and while I was putting this post together. And that is...
Damn, I'm fat!
Holy crap. Look at these guys! I feel like Chunk doing the "truffle shuffle". I'm going to need to start doing on the air diet really soon.
Thanks for reading!
