Actually a word about our sponsors. Don't automatically tune out. You might want to hear this. Went out for a quick 50 today and wore the new lid for the first time. The Lazer Genesis. Wow, the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn.
Most people who know me and many who read this know that I'm a man of principle. I would pay a thousand dollars to fight a 20 dollar ticket just for the principle.
Those principles also extend to sponsors. I got my first sponsorship years ago with Clifbar because I loved their products. I have been fortunate to be sponsored by other companies along the way who happen to have great products. I've written about the Ergon BD2 backpack, and their grips saved me numb hands in many a race. I love my Oakleys. Lazer is no exception. This helmet is awesome. I'll write more about it soon, but know that I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. I wouldn't say good things just to get free or discounted stuff it it was crappy stuff.
Seriously check out my sponsors, they have great stuff and they are good people too.
p.s. no bad close calls today. Lets go for 2 days in a row
