    Well...I talked to matt today...it's built...I should get a picture tomorrow.

    And, it should get to the house early next week.

    Aidan been on a win streak in BMX. Get got his first Main wins last weekend (Friday & Saturday) and were going racing in Las Vegas this weekend.

    I just can't wait to give the Trials bike to him. I'm going to let him take it to the BMX track to show it off. Maybe, we can perk some intrest in the young BMX riders.

    Here's a picture from his first, 1st place trophy win. He really looks beat up in the picture. It was 10:00 at night (he's only 6...and NEVER stays up this late) and he raced his ass off to get 1st.

    Done that more than a few time. :cry

    Yesterday a bunch of kids were playing around on their old heavy BMX bikes trying to pop wheelies and stuff so we brought out the trials bikes to show them some cool stuff. They were flabbergasted when Ben busted out with the rear wheel hops and pretty impressed that I could do some decent wheelies.

    I watched them ride around a bit and when one of the boys actually started trying to trackstand I finally relented and lit him ride my Monty. First thing out of his mouth was "Daaaaaang! This thing is LIGHT!"

    His bike didn't have any brakes so he was very impressed with the stopping power on the Monty. I showed him how to do little endos and pick up the front wheel and then showed him a video on my iTouch of some good riders and he was amazed.

    Another kid was jealous of the sprocket on my bike and when we explained that it made the bike really slow he didn't believe us so I challenged him to a race. Of course he won and I felt like I was going to die but at least I proved my point. :lol3

    It was pretty fun to see all the kids playing around on their bikes.

    Is Danny really his nephew? I have heard that, but wasn't sure.

    Maybe I should put a post in "Ask Baldy"? :rofl

    I think he just jokes that everyone with the last name MacAskill is related somehow.

    Tape a piece of foam to the stem, it will save countless body parts from serious potential harm. I stuck a piece on my mountain bike the first time I unclipped accidentally and slammed my chest unto the bars. I saw stars.

    Thanks for coming and a great job to all! It was very rewarding to see how much fun everyone had. We will look forward to hosting this event again at next years Iron Horse. It was well received by the community and the spectator turnout was staggering! The Demo at Steamworks Brewing was amazing to say the least. I'll have a NATS write up coming shortly. Thanks to everyone who purchased a NATS membership to help support the sport. Your licenses will be processed shortly. Thanks again, a competition can't happen with out competitors so thanks for supporting the sport we all love. Ryder

    LOL! The last section I was called a five for rolling over the very end of the tape. It would have been a 2 but I got a 5, so I could have tied my nephew. I also took one really stupid dab near the end of a section. So I will try harder. :D
