yep, especially if you held it in someplace accessible, like the middle of Pennsylvania...you'd have inmates from Indiana to Maine to the Carolinas showing up...just keep it away from the gridlock that is the DC to Boston corridor.

You mean you didn't already book it while you were out there?

Did you at least deliver that hug to MomDuro for me?

Welp, for better or worse and even though it's old news, the Cycle News folks published my letter defending the slander against Ned:

...along with someone elses. Makes me wonder how many they actually got...

He had a few things on his plate while I was out there.

And yes, hug delivered.

Guess I'll have to come back.

Great to meet you too Nate! I was also totally overwhelmed at the turnout.




You should definitely plan a trip back! But wait until the summer and then we can go for a ride.

Pine Barrens of NJ, rocks of the Berkshires, or the varied terrain of central PA.... doesnt matter. If Ned decides to do a clinic and/or slideshow anywhere in the NE, I'll gather up a crew of misfits to attend.

A toast to Ned (and his team), a man among men, an inspiration to others to reach for their dreams and not be deterred by harsh realities and the long odds of success. The dust has settled, the results have been recorded, and the only thing that counts in racing is that Ned WAS the best American rider at the 2012 Dakar, there can only be ONE champion!


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Oh hell yeah. I am especially fond of the central PA idea, but that's just me.

* 1200 miles, 10% pavement, much dirt @ 80 mph, Kings of the West rally
* 900 miles, 35% paved highway, Death Valley dual sport trip

So, take that, plus the fact that daily routes in Dakar are 450 miles, 50% pavement, all at high speeds.

Front mousses last the same, plus then I move them to my trail bike and use them for an entire additional season.

As Ned said, MEFO mousse are far superior in our testing. And they come in lots of sizes for even better fit in non-Michelin tires.

What are you waiting for? Just try it. You'll like it.

Dave
That is quite an endorsement. MEFO mousse on the radar now!
