SSUSA went down last weekend in Boulder, CO.  For the proper write up head on over to Mountain Flyer, because they write better than I can.  First and foremost, big congrats to Eszter Horanyi and the dude from Seattle who took the overall wins.  The weekend included seeing old friends, making new friends, plenty of good times, and a bike race thrown in for good measure.  For my pictures and recap scroll down.

Dejay greeted me Wednesday night the only way one would expect after not having seen each other in nine months, yelling incoherent words, throwing up in the street, and biting my shoulder.

  1. That is absolutely, hands down, the best picture ever taken of a sticker…

  2. goddamn you guys drink a lot. it freaks me out how much you guys can drink and still ride like that. i love the boobage shot. great time, it looks like.

  3. One photo of me and it shows me taking a piss on the roadside. perfect. Good times all around. Kramer and I finished the rest of those beers this weekend. Braaap.

  4. …@gypsy…one a’ these days, lance the intimidater is gonna learn that >i>”the end doesn’t justify the means” & that for all the ‘nobility’ of his actions regarding cancer patients & the inspiration he has provided, he can’t continue lying & trying to intimate through his lawyers that those who previously teamed with him or provided support, all have their own agenda by speaking up about him…

    …i for one would never deny that he has done plenty of good within the cancer community & i will forever support the idea that having won 7 tours de france, he is a great cyclist but his underhanded & intimidating tactics in dealing with those who would disclose the truth are becoming the legendary stuff of a desperate man…

    …so lance allegedly blocks hamiltons path on the way out of the restaurants washroom simply to say “hey, what’s up…???”…ya, okay, sure…that’s fucking likely…just wanted to ‘catch up’ with an old pal’ ya ???…

    …& as far as lance stating “…no one cares…” when hamilton allegedly suggested they go outside so as not to disturb others ???…you are wrong, mr armstrong…a lotta people care & we’d all like to see you ‘man up’ & honestly clear the air…
