Pictures really didn't do this tree justice. How did you start your

Jarrett, jordan's dad is interested in the intense you have for sale.


I spent the night at jordan's place in Los gatos. We woke up at 6 and
rode Santa Cruz dirt. It was absolutely the best way to start the
day. Jordan's dad rolled string with us and took this photo for me.
Check out the size of this redwood. What an amazing way to start the
day. Now I gotta get to work!

Super Early esquire tuesday

My friends. For the 1st time ever, I give you esquire tuesday on a monday night. Boom! Emmanuelle Chriqui is an Entourage regular. I have been watching her grow up for years. Bless her heart.

Had an absolutely amazing weekend mtn biking in Downieville. Took 3 showers in a river. The rides were very hot and favored full face helmets. I am happy I had one and only took one serious digger.

I cant believe I am even saying this right now, but I have to get some work done tonight before bed. Ahhhh how life changes.
Thinking about some long slow miles in the road bike this weekend. Anyone interested?

Downieville might knock San diego's noble canyon off the top ca mtn bike spot. 60 miles of dowhill awesomeness, 3 showers in a river, and only one flat. Wow

If dura ace 7800 is good enough for thor, does that mean that I don't need 7900?

Esquire Tuesday

God bless Mary Louis-Parker. Could any man ask for anything more than a beautiful woman who will make you a pie, and have maintain her fitness. Again, I contend, God bless Mary Louis Parker.

Track racing tonight. Downieville this weekend. Tyler wants me to drive 600 miles to Bend, OR to watch him race a crit. I love you tyler, but thats a little too far to drive that far to watch.

Had to use a green bottle to set off the new glasses and independent fabrication jersey. Won a gladiator's cycling bottle of win for the "most aggressive rider of the day" award. Not bad for not racing road for 3 months.

Thanks to Ian, Jill, Canada, and Eric for cheerleading
Got most aggressive racer and a bottle of wine! But only finished in the pack. Caught behind a super sketchy wobble with one to go.
Gonna rock black Vernice sidis, independent jersey, and something special for todays crit
Just got back on the Twitter posting train. Fb, Twitter, and blog all linked now. Boom

Tough guy

Check out this guy outside of the yogurt shop in Berkeley.

Just won the scratch race, the miss and out, took 3rd in the points race. Those placings mean I won my first cat3 track omnium
It was a paid holiday, I didn't steal anything!
It was a paid holiday, I didn't steal anything!


I used to fly planes for a living. Now I carry a computer around and
make hypothesis about future markets, entry points, and disruption in
the technology field. I guess that's cool.

I also think it is interesting how everyone is trying to cut back.
Take a look at the fountain below. No flow. Cisco is trying to cut
$250million out of it's operating budget. No more free drinks and no
enjoyable fountains.

Cisco just paid me $255 for Friday the 3rd which I did not work. That's cool

Tohoe Pics

The views are awesome in Tahoe.

Jan gettin' some!

Trail ripper. Plastered smile. Life is good.

The Tahoe locals dont appreciate the fact that the bay is accountable for about 80% of their local economy.

Long fall, but awesome view.

Click on this one to make it big. The panoramic here is very well done. Yay Jan!

Self timed self portrait.

"I'm the king of the world"

I like this photo. Happy times.

This lady was hiking the entire tahoe rim trail. She was on mie 15 for the day. As you can see, the clouds opened up shortly afterward and rained. We missed getting wet by 5 mins.
