About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. I’ve done Battenkill. Bad roads and worse wind. Everything you want in a Euro spring classic right here in Upstate NY. I am glad I retired from “serious” racing years ago because this thing is BRUTAL.

    March 15th I was nailed by a White VW Van turning right into me, in front of Macy’s. I did not yell at the women who was driving, I did not even frown. I smiled I was very polite, and told her that I would see what the bike shop had to say and she would have to pay for the damages to my bike. She gave me a number, she called herself Claire. The number was a phony and my bike is totaled, can someone help me track her down? She drove a very distinctive Van. It’s back is covered with bumper-stickers, and the sides of the car are covered with maps. Any information would be appreciated. Plates are Arizona: 230-RDP

    Got a hold of the driver, she’s being a bit slippery, but I got her information. Thanks for all your help CL Community!

  3. I heard last year one of the towns decided to do the guys a favor by re-grading a dirt section the week before the race. Golf ball sized gravel on a 30+ descent.
