That would be eatalotapeaches if I had to guess. He's the only guy here who autocrosses that I know of. Silver Miata, beard, one functional arm?

"Wow (mused Supah, casually glancing at his front tire), these knobbies don't stick nearly as well as the fancy Woody's SM setup."

How's the arm coming along?
Its still attached and casted. another check up in 2 weeks, we'll see how that goes. I went on a 6 mile night ride last night thru inner Jackson, past Fondren down Bailey Ave, but i was peddling... I made sure I was nowhere near the back of the pack.

Jimmy, good to see you at Eldridge. I had just heard of KS's get-off when I saw KW last week. All I can saw is that he was one lucky dude. Don said that they raised $70 K, What a day.
