You may have seen this photo floating around the interwebz as of late:
There’s a story behind it, and I heard it this morning when I went to work. First off, this is not photoshopped. Second, if you could see this man’s face, you’d realize it’s the same guy featured on Drunkcyclist a few weeks ago. I’ll let you guess which one he is.
So the story, from the horse’s mouth, goes like this:
At Sea Otter last week, Kennett (the flying time trialer) was getting ribbed by some mountain bikers. They were making fun of him for being a roadie, and they were calling him Lancie Pants…you know, implying that he was a bitch. A lady. A nancy.
Not one to back down from a stupid decision…err…challenge, Kennett climbed up to the top of the ramp… and launched it. That in itself is pretty badass, but it’s made even more badass by a few facts:
1) He did the jump multiple times, all on his time trial bike
2) He won the climber’s jersey earlier that day
3) He has agreed to appear on the next DC podcast
Kennett Peterson is a straight baller. Recognize.by
