Former Teammate Gig Callahan Wishes All Luck At Bonelli!




Former CFR team member and Fontana XC specialist Seamas "Gig" Callahan has moved to Las Vegas, and recently resurfaced to tell me that he reads the blog religiously. The only person still on the team who would remember actually RACING with gig would probably be Bert. Gig used to race the Fontana XC with me when the course was still techically difficult (sometimes downright deadly). He has moved to Vegas to be with his woman..geez, what a loser, right?...I mean WHO DOES THAT???? Anyway..








Gig said the weather is perfect in Vegas and wants to invite you all to come and ride in the mountains at Boulder City or up near Red Rock. Please contact me if you would like to drive to Vegas and have a crusty old dirt-bag whip your ass. NO..not BERT...Gig. Bert's not crusty. Gig also wants me to inform you all that he has been photo-shopping pix of Lyd to make her topless, and is selling them for 5 dollars. Call for pay pal info! I already owe him 500 dollars, that sumbitch.

He didn't forget his post, he likes it like that! The Fuzz is laying in the creek, surrounded by Sierra Nevada beer bottles..

Looks like a root canal team, not a mtn bike team! How come no one is smiling???

And The Fuzz is next to The Roff, hand over the suds.

That looks like the bottle of screw-on top caber-not that was used as the "thanks for coming" trophy (right after abel & cap'n took possession of the pink anodized weyz-a-lot seat post for their penultimate placing in the two man potato sack tricycle race). I never could figure out how a big dumb blond and a vertically challenged hermano cafe could share a seat post. I wonder if it has anything to do with why chris is smiling & abel is looking totally cholo behind the foster grants

The cabernot turned out to be a great cleaner. Especially good at removing errant cow chip splatter, a necessity when riding in Cap'ns old stomping grounds in the 909.

What the F**K did Gig just say? I thought you quit drinking?

most irish have no business drinking after the age of 39.
after the age of 55, most irish think that is about the dumbest truism ever put to paper.

Irish to English translation:

"bottle of screw-on top caber-not" -- cheap ass wine

"thanks for coming" trophy -- last place

"pink anodized weyz-a-lot seat post" -- cheap knock off of a supergo weyless cheap knock-off of a taiwan import (typical of the donated marked out of stock merchandise passed out as trophies)

"penultimate placing" -- second to last place

"two man potato sack tricycle race" -- throttleman/steering by seated team mate (with potato sack over his head); brakeman/navigator stands on rear transom & yells a lot. Before the writer's strike, reality tv, 8-tracks & electric phonographs, the two man was a variation of the less successful one man PSTR during the balmy weekend afternoons in the 909

"big dumb blond" -- cap'n
"vertically challenged hermano cafe" -- little brown brother/short mexican (aka-abel)

"share a seat post" -- this is a family oriented blog

"chris is smiling & abel is looking totally cholo" -- ditto

"behind the foster grants" -- old school oakley's

"cabernot turned out to be a great cleaner" -- tasted like s@#t

"errant cow chip splatter" -- cow poop

"stomping grounds in the 909" -- birthplace to our lord & fearless leader.
