Life is amazing!
If you were to tell me in the days following my devastating knee injury that I would be riding my bike and taking it to the next level 6 weeks later, I would NEVER have believed you! Yet the journey and objectives achieved in the past few weeks well exceeded my expectations and have left me amped for the months to come.
It all started with a quick email from RaceFace rider Mike Kinrade. “Going to Vegas?” My reply, ”Nope, should I?”
Kinrade and the STUND Crew were in Oregon filming while making their way south to Las Vegas for the legendary industry trade show known as Interbike. They would then head to Utah to film one of their final segments for the ’09 season. That email got me thinking, “Why not make the trip, have fun at Interbike, and then join the Crew as they head to Green River Utah?”. It only helps the decision when you know that fun things are happening in Vegas like the RaceFace “What’s Next” Movie Premiere.
Needless to say, the movie premiere went off! Party hosts Brett Tippie and Wade Simmons were in fine form for their live Pink Bike webcast while the drinks flowed pool side at the decadent mansion venue. Life was good.
Tippie and I enjoying it!
