the rest of us got together to try and decide on a name for him, we
couldn’t come up with one that we could agree on. There were many
suggestions but none seem to encompass the nature of the rider. After his
first race in April, the decision was unanimous, Road runner. Why? Cos no
matter how fast we are going, he always seems to have an extra gear to
drop us with. One could almost hear the ‘beep, beep’ as he went by.
Road runner is currently employed doing ‘stressful’ work in the
semiconductor industry. But he knows that if he wasn’t doing this, he
would own a Flight Ranch in Brazil.
currently owns two bikes. A Trek 5500 for the road and a Giant ATX
890 for the trails (although he has not been spotted on one…ever).
He’s been on the bike for a year now and its all thanks to his buddy,
Big stick. Due to his short time in the sport of cycling, he doesn’t
believe in a dream bike, but we have plenty of time to convince him
line with this belief is the best advice that he’s received on riding,
which is that it’s not about the bike. And to return the advice, he says
that is about having fun.
winning his first race, he feels that his best cycling moment has yet to
come. But he’s quite sure his worst cycling moment was falling of a
stationary trainer, at that very race, after being assured that it would
be able to handle his high output.
loves his new cycling shorts and thinks that it is his best bike related
purchase next to his 5500 bike. He likes his shorts now cos his worst
purchase was his first pair of cycling shorts.
to show all of you that he has other skills apart from cycling, his best
non-bike related purchase is a Laminar - ICARO 2000 Hang glider. And
without hesitation his worst non-bike related purchase are shares of
Brokat Technologies (formerly listed on the DAX-Germany)
