3 years old and ripping it. Just like his big brother did. Seamus took flight today and isn't looking back. The Like-A-Bike yet again proved its worth for boy No. 2.

I watched him today do this and in all sincerity, and obviously not to sound cheesy but it'll sound the way it'll sound, this affirms why I ride. Just seeing his face creates that instant connection between what he just experienced today and what I have known for the last 32 years of my life since I learned to pedal Ted Stoica's bike...the one he got for his HIS birthday party. I can only imagine those pros who take the step towards dope to get faster. This joy in Seamus which they absolutely knew is now the farthest thing from their mind. Somewhere along the way the job and livelihood and overbearing ego penetrated the goodness of it all and totally sullied the experience of what a bike does to transform a human.

So all the sappy doperssuck stuff aside, CHECK THIS OUT! MY BOY'S FREE! HE DID IT! SICK!!!

What's up Molly! Thanks for the note.

HOLY CRAP! That kid is super rad! I better be getting my Boulder brood skilled up something quick to compete against that Pac NW talent!

Dude: Belgie. Mmmm. The answer is yes, I will be there from about 10 Jan to 20 Jan. The whole dealio is to race the master's worlds but will do some stuff the weekend before and during that week. Working it ALL out as we speak. You making the trek again?

Let me know if your crew is coming out for the UCI races here in Boulder this season man. We'll hook it.

Thanks for the smile this post gave me.

My son hasn't migrated to the two wheels yet, not even training wheels, but he's already training in his team kit.

Have a great day.
