    I love it when they cry

    No - not the other riders when you keep pulling away on a long climb but rather the kids when you find that perfect Christmas gift. This year it was a pink Spyder speed suit for the junior ski racer. She was totally satisfied with what she had received when out from the back of the tree popped the last present, she broke down in tears of joy!

    Yep, it is a nice feeling and usually brings a few tears to these old eyes, also. The speed suit looks nice, great job on the gift for the special young lady.

    Yep - I must confess, I welled up a little when she was in tears.

    Cool. She looks happy enough to burst. A great gift and one that has a good chance of being recalled with pleasure years after the clothes are long gone.
