I know I've mentioned it before but in definitely sure that half my blogs are generated from terminals in airports all over the place. Today is much of the same with an early morning flight I'm generally in pretty early and had the privilege to meet a pair of retired teachers on the way to an annual reunion they have each year in different parts of the country. They just so happened to be headed to Atlanta today and asked me the typical questions what's in the bags and what not. I told her BMX bikes and she related because she grew up in the same city that Pink is from and her husband does BMX, I chuckled and told her it was actually motorcycles that he does but hey same difference I'm sure he rode bmx at some point LOL. She goes into the next series of common questions and asks if I've ever had any injuries. I usually downplay the injury side but for the sake of conversation I decided to let her know the full range and rattled off a few surgeries this bone that bone a handful of teeth and a spleen that cost me more than a house. One of the teachers was bewildered and said "well you don't sound very good" hahahaha I told her she was exactly right! We joked a bit and she said well you must have a good amount of passion and I told her she was right about that and I'm too silly to walk away. I wished them well as it was time to check my bikes in and low and behold as I get to security they are just two people in front of me. They were "old" but in good shape having zero issue whatsoever and a TSA agent asked one of them if they would like a wheelchair this lady sharp as a tack says "no thanks but keep an eye on this guy" and nudges my direction. I start cracking up laughing and the three of us are just hysterical. It was a good start to what shall be a long travel day. Wheels up in a bit to ChIraq and then off into Charlotte. Let's get this worlds started!

Never fails I commit to blogging on a more consistent basis and I cant even get two posts in the same month LOL. Lets catch all 3 of you viewers up haha. Tracks been killing it and a few people have noticed the points chase and it has become a "thing" it will be interesting to see what changes are made and how people go about stopping the master plan. I came up with a cool concept today for it to have people earn free state finals entries but Ill keep it under wraps for the time being. Excited though. SX dropped a new frame this week and it looks pretty good. I wont leave my carbon but I do like the look of the bike and wish I was balling and could afford a second bike haha. Worlds is just around the corner and if you are hoping to hear some epic rant about Ive been waiting my whole life to represent our country and blah blah blah you aint getting it. Im gonna ramp some shit and race my bike the same way I do at 15 other races throughout the year just so happens this one carries some prestige if you make the main. Catch me tryin to crash dudes in 30-34 Men. Leaving to Vegas tomorrow for a brutally small indoor arena race that will be fun regardless of outcome, stoked to hit the casino slots and waste some hard earned money #theamericandreamtheysaid... Thats about all folks wish I had some more but its business as usual quite frankly. Be kind to each other! Australia 2009 on my USA shit!
