Day one of the Interbike clown show is in the books. I type this from a seedy Megabucks coffee shop on the edge of the wrong side of town as I try to caffeinate in order to keep this night going. It has already been a very complete day of riding bikes, drinking beer, and causing trouble in the sunshine.
Today was the Dirt Demo and it proved to be very productive. We rolled into Boulder City around noon, it was blazing hot outside and we were still feeling the effects of the previous night. Before I even have a chance to grab a bike the Reverened Dick sends out the page that he is chillin’ in a certain booth that had both shade and an ice cold keg of beer. I was off to a good start.

Honestly, that is all I can remember right now, I will do it all again tomorrow. But first, I think a special place is calling my name.by
