I attribute my being absent from this list to being in a sophomore slump and focusing mostly on triathlons. I expect my riding to be far more ubiquitous this year now that we'll be training for 70.3, so I'll need a lot more miles.

Actually, your absence was due to no one nominating you. Still, you have your fans here, and we want to read more of you as there's less of you.

I'll make up the certificates and get them up this weekend sometime. I'm up in Michigan right now near Grand Haven, getting ready to go snowshoeing tomorrow and Sunday. I'll have pics and video, too.

Our reign is over, Miss Bumble. I guess we need to turn the crowns over to the new owners.

I feel so unloved. :-(

OH CARP MISSB! I didn't realize th thread was a sticky so I didn't get a chance to vote before the polls closed. So you are still atleast number one!

I also would have voted for 10Wheels. I was keeping my eye open for the other thread to emerge!
