2008 racing starts now

In 2008 I have decided to start my own racing journal, because 07 was so much freakin fun I got to have somewhere to talk about it more. So kcdirtbikeracing is my online home for all the dirty fun I'm gonna toss up in 08.

I have somewhat recently moved to Kansas City and am working, with my wife Amber, at the Trek Store of Kansas City. The Fisher factory days are over, but 07 still saw me pin one on over 30 times, and have my 1st season of Cross ending with a podium spot at CX Nats in the SS class, I was smiling after I was done not smiling, generally the way racing goes.

Real quick before 08 starts I have to shout out to all the people who made racing possible in 07. Rob Pennell at Badger Cycles built me two AMAZING singlespeeds that saw the bulk of the start lines. My Uncle Chris Chambers brazed me up a geared cross rig that won me my 1st Cat 1,2 cross race. My Dad at Golden Belt Bicycle Company outfitted most of my bikes and built me some ridiculously fast wheels, I'll post a picture sometime. Matt Brown at High Gear Bike Shop in Emporia, KS chipped in and helped me through the three month cross season, Thank you Matt and Stephanie. And most importantly Amber Chambers was at nearly every race handing me up bottles, ringing the cow bell, and looking cute. Thank you Amber.

All right it is stinkin freakin on. Grote Pris this afternoon. See ya
