    Go Ned Go!

    I read the prep and the race report thread for the Double Barrel racing effort. Those t-shirts and hoodies were cool.:clap

    Read your training and riding tips. Watched the video a friend bought. Looking forward to the rest of this adventure.

    Go Ned!

    If I were king, these carts would have WAY more power.

    As it stands, the only fun thing to do is run into things "by mistake", Jeremy Clarkson style.

    Doc gave me an airboot this morning and said if I'm nice to the foot, it should only be a couple weeks before I'm pretty much back to normal.

    He was very impressed with the boots, that I didn't break toes or ankle. :thumb

    Just for fun, this was the morning following the break - no pain and in good spirits.

    IMO, Ned can use the downtime to get all of the stuff in order, paperwork-wise, sponsorship-wise etc. And, when he gets back on the bike, he'll have not only all that out of the way, but more importantly the hunger to ride that we all know a debilitating injury can bring back with a vengeance.

    That's one serious van, aka "toy hauler." Is ther a business behind that rig, or is the business recreation? Either way, very nice.

    It's mine- 20+mpg, and I can get 6 bikes inside or 3 and still have lots of room for sleeping. Definitely pays for itself in lack of fuel and hotel bills.

    Sidi Crossfires, and I'm darn glad I was. To have the full weight of the bike bear down on my foot when it's at an angle, and suffer no damage to ankles or toes, is pretty impressive to me.
