Got some press again

Well, it isn't as cool as when I got my article published in Mountain Bike Action, but it's been a fun anyway (shameless self-promoter that I am ). Plus it's given me a couple more chances to give props to sponsors, which is never a bad thing. In May, our local outdoor monthly tabloid was doing a "What's Your Gear" feature and they wanted to feature a downhiller. I of course said 'yes' to an interview:

For this month, the same writer wanted to do a "Christmas Wish List" follow-up and reinterviewed all of us who were featured throughout the year (go to page 15 of the PDF):

Good article. Not quite what I expected from "Out" magazine, but good for you anyway.

Hey - nice read. Good to see you're getting some (virtual) ink! Now that you're famous, will you still post on BikeFourms?

Thanks! It was (ink) ink too. Needless to say, I grabbed about a dozen copies of each off the rack when they came out.

I tried to not let it go to my head when I got my sponsorship article published in Mountain Bike Action - - and failed miserably at that (which, by the way, was the Nov. 2005 issue, page 114 and available as a back issue here: http://www.zinio.com/issue?is=107000311&ns=zno) "Now that I'm famous" - - haha! Hey I know it's fleeting, so I'm milking my '15 minutes' for all it's worth.
