There goes my hero


We all have a hero, more or less. At least i think we do. In different parts of our life i would think they could be different people too...Gandhi, dave grohl, Einstein, swamp thing etc etc.

In terms of bike racing my hero has to be travis brown.

Music collector, singlespeed racer, side burn grower, product developer and renaissance man.

Eh - is there some news about the air brakes pioneer that I've missed?

What, Wes the Conqueror lining up next to him isn't worthy of hero status? I'll tell him you said so at the next W101.

So does this mean you'll be a 29er owner who actually approves of Alison's new Carver 96er? (had to find a home for the Phil Wood hubs from Sweden)

At 02 he was riding up stuff that I was struggling to ride down, and carrying a big medical kit on his bag to help the downed rider that you were watching over Jon

"hello Travis" says I

"hello, hows your race going dude ?" says he

"not too bad" says I "how was your race ?"

"not too bad either, I won" says he

"okay see you in the bar" says I

"yup, see you later and enjoy yourself" says he

a real good guy and nice with it
