Smash & No Grab, Chas at Fixed Fest

Did you hear? One of Tupac's shooters admitted to the shooting outside his studio that happened back in 94. Even bigger news is a friend of mine's headliner news. "Ballsy Woman Chases Down Man Who Tries To Steal Her Bike." On Monday afternoon, between working and curing my hangover, a friend messages me and tells me "I got robbed." In short, he ran off with her wallet after elbowing her in the face and almost her bike until she chased him down and took it back. Next time you see this gorgeous gal, buy her a drink. Pro tip: short hair, short shorts, and always rockin sidi's, she also has a crow tattoo on her right chest (like you should be staring there anyway).

Read the news article here. The story isn't completely on point, but she took back her bike. And that's pretty deep.

On other news, Fixed Fest is happening in Indonesia right now. This video of Chas winning the goldsprints just popped up on Vimeo.

Race Across America Race

"Race Across America (RAAM) is one the most respected and longest running endurance sports events in the world. RAAM is seen as a pinnacle of athletic achievement not only in cycling circles but the greater sporting community as well.

RAAM has a rich and storied history. In 1982 four individuals raced from the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles to the Empire State Building in New York City. Covered by national television, the race captivated the public’s imagination. Teams were added in 1994 and quickly became the most popular and fastest growing segment of the race. Relay team racing made the event accessible to any reasonably fit cyclist. The 2011 race will be the 30th edition of RAAM."

I never heard about this race today until my friend, Luis Perez, mentioned that he will be helping out with Team JDRF-IGA in Oceanside and then again in Maryland on Saturday. They plan on attempting the race in under 6 days. Here's a couple monumental facts about the race:

- Route: 3000 miles, 170,000 feet of climbing
- Crosses 12 states, passes through 88 counties and 350 communities
- Format: Solo, 2-, 4- and 8-Person relay teams

Good luck, Luis!
