My brother's in Aspen this weekend, and I'm going to L.A. Nice.
Of course, by LA, I mean Lewiston-Auburn. Maine. I'm going for another study visit, and we're working a lot while there, 5:00AM to 8:30 PM, which is indicative of my yeoman's work ethic.
Last weekend he and I watched the Patriots, who throttled the Titans 59-0, in a snowstorm. We dressed like cast members on The Deadliest Catch, with full foul weather gear and hat over several layers of long underwear and other technical fabrics.
If not for a hot Italian sausage which I considered shoving into my mittens to warm my hands, I still would've have been freezing. We had amazing seats, 13 rows off the field, which made our region a prime target for snowballs from the nosebleed sections.
More exciting than that blowout, is the opportunity you have to win a new custom Independent Fabrication frame and fork! My team is running a raffle, with a grand prize of a custom built steel frame and fork, your choice of road, track, cyclocross, mountain, or touring. There are also a slew of other cycling gear prizes: Stan's NoTubes wheelset, Tifosi shades, WTB saddle and tires, Time pedals, Ergon grips, and more.
We're trying to sell 600 tickets, and tickets cost 5 bucks. If you spend $100 or more, you get a special prize from IFMTBing. The drawing is coming right up, November 15. So please buy some tickets from me, or at http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?eventid=8526
To get in touch, just leave a comment, or email me, and I'll get you yours. Thank you very much!
I've been tickled pink all year with my IF SSR road bike. The fit, feel, and handling are all exactly what I wanted, and now's your chance to get your own.
On Monday night, in return for a signed jersey, Robert, the owner of La Festa Brick and Brew, in Dover, NH invited Teddy (who invited his family) for a feast you would not believe! I wish I had a picture of it. We got 4 delectable pizzas from the brick oven and NY style, garlic knots, cinnamon knots, excellent beer like Moat Mtn Octoberfest and Dogfish head on tap, and La Fin du Monde, my new favorite, plus others in bottles, a bottle of wine for the ladies, German chocolate cake for all, and huge chocolate chip cookies. It was ludicrous, and the owner urged it, so I've had my lunches all week taken care of! Thank you so much, Rob.
I'll write more when there's news. Thanks for reading, and supporting my IFRacing team.
