I was going to talk about bikes...

I was going to write a post about bike races, and bike trips, and bike parts, but then I came across this video...(warning, naurghty language)

I can't follow a video that awesome.

You know who has been doing a good job of writing about bikes and bike racing? The Scalo Veloce team, who have been tearing it up at the cross races so far...


I (Lucero) attempted to race the first loop of the Manzanita Mountain Epic on Saturday, a part of the New Mexico Endurance Series...

I had an alarm clock mishap, missed the start, and intercepted the race at Tunnel, cutting out maybe 10 miles.  I was disappointed to miss the start, but at the end of the day I could still barely turn over the pedals.

Our cohort Marc Basiliere had two wrong turns, adding a few miles to the course, and still managed to be the winner of loop 1.

Top single speed finisher on loop 1 was our buddy Painter Paul, who absolutely crushed it.  Good work Paul, I'd say you're back in shape.

I'd like to thank Donnie Cole and Lenny Goodell for organizing the race.  And don't forget everybody, the Zuni 100 is on October 20th, and promises to be a good time.

That's all I got.


  1. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I recognized the thrift stores in that video - they're in Portand, Oregon. The big one with all the bins smells like shit. ~ Matt

  2. I think Swinton was hiding in the dumpster....
