…still feeling under the weather today, despite the beautiful weather that we received this week. It’s been over a week of sicklyness for me now, and I really don’t like it. Looks like my racing plans are gonna change for this month.
…why do I always feel like a sleezy salesman when I give shout-outs and props to the companies that I love and believe in??? Maybe it’s this sleezy sportscoat, my greasy slicked-back hair, and the toothpick I’m chewing on?!?! No matter, cuz it’s time to pour out a large cup of love for Ergogenic Sports Nutrition ergogenicsportsnutrition.com!!! ESN is a small company, owned and operated by a great friend of mine… William Evan Thomas (or Big Bill, as I like to call him). If ever there was a being so consumed with finding the limits of the human cardiovascular and muscular systems, it would be this man! Thankfully, I’m somewhat intelligent (*cough) and can easily follow technical lingo as it applies to its related field. As such, I’ve learned more, in casual conversations with Bill, about an athlete’s potential and how to get them there, than from years of classes, experimenting, studying, and reading books on the subject! I’m extremely picky about the supplements I put into my body, and I favor the function of the product far more than the taste, color, or consistency. That being said, ESN’s products check all of the boxes for what a TRUE enhancing supplement should be and do. Check out the website: http://ergogenicsportsnutrition.com/ and have read about the products and their benefits. I’ve been using the HYP-FUEL and RE-FUEL for the past year, and have noticed tremendous gains in performance.
None of the boys pictured above were sitting on the couch much last year…train hard, and train right! ESN is exactly what your body needs to get you to your goal!
If you’d like to try a sample, and are in the Socal area, come and find me at one of the races and I’ll be happy to let you experience some for yourself.
Bill also has a a full range of testing equipment to assess your physical and cardiovascular conditioning, so be sure to consider him when looking to get VO2 and/or ventilatory threshold tested.
Small company doing BIG things!!!
Ergogenic Sports Nutrition will get you where you need to be!

…some people just don’t have it together. I really hope they figure it out someday…I’ll be here waiting, forgiveness at the ready…
Why is it that people don’t use their brains these days? I remember when I was younger (not that I’m old), people were much more polite, concise, and good-hearted. I don’t know when this “I don’t need my brain to get through the day” mentality took hold, but it pisses me off BIG TIME!!! I’m tired of having to explain every little detail of something to these dummies, cuz they were too fucking lazy to: A) Read the directions. B) Pay attention to what’s being said. C) Use deductive reasoning and logic to figure it out. D.) All of the above.
I have many pet peeves with the world today and the direction it’s headed in. Having spent a few years on this big ball of water and dirt, I can honestly say that we’re not gonna last long at this rate. I remember watching a funny movie called ‘Idiocracy’ a few years ago….I laughed during the movie, but deep inside I was scared shitless!!! Why??? Because I knew that, although this was a far-fetched piece of comedic fiction, it was also just a slightly hazy look into our ACTUAL future! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’ll ever get that ridiculous…but, we’re definitely on the way to dum-dumville! Manners seem to have gone out of the window, and chivalry has become part of an ad campaign slogan for a certain Scotch Whiskey. It’s as if the newer generations DGAF…and if you understood what DGAF means, this is targetted primarily at you. Make the effort to flex your grey matter when given the opportunity…I think you’ll find that you get a lot more respect that way than by telling people about your high score on World of Warcraft! And, since we all use the World Wide Web these days, let’s act like humans while we’re on there, eh? Conducting yourself like an idiot online is no better than doing the same in the real world….save for the anonimity that it provides you…but it’s still YOU at the end of the day. So, the next time you need to communicate with someone through the digital medium…try to remember these few things when relaying your message: 1) Emotion is hard to see in a typed message…say what you mean, and mean what you say! 2) Spelling and grammar are your best friend or your worst enemy…if you spell things wrong, or don’t use punctuation, people who have their brains turned on will assume that you are an idiot. 3) Before you ask a question, take as much time as needed to completely exhaust every possibility of finding the answer on your own….in this day and age, it shouldn’t be hard. 4) Don’t try to act tough through the internet…in the internet, you’re nothing but a bunch of 1’s and 0’s.
I think that’s it for now. I just had to get a little frustration out. It seems that many Craigslist users can’t read, pay attention, or even make a logical guess as to who, what, when, where, and why. But I managed to sell most of the stuff I put up for sale yesterday, and the rest is already being fought over. Time to go and feed the internals now…..Good-Fry!
…T-minus 3 days and counting…
Wow!! Look at me fly!!! It’s only been 20 minutes since my last post, and I’m already updating this intellectual script we all seem to deem necessary these days….hahaha! I’m either: A) Getting the hang of this blogging stuff. B) Cheating by doubling up on my posts for today so that I can skip tomorrow and/or the next day. C) Really anxious to reveal some top-secret information. D) All of the above.
In any case, I’m going to be testing some new bicycle-related items this weekend, and I’m effing STOKED!!! I can’t really give much away, as it’s all prototype/top-secret/kill-you-and-your-family kinda stuff….BUT, I’ll be posting all of the detailed info, pics, and what-not this weekend, so be sure to check back. Oh, and I know that many of you see the old Rock Racing stuff, but don’t read too much into it. Let’s just say the past is the past, and the future is yet to come….you’ll all be pleasantly surprised, I promise! ;-)

Well, once again I’ve managed to NOT uphold my end of the bargain. I apologize for not being a good lad and updating this space daily….but if at first I don’t succeed, I shall try, try, then eventually either forget or complete the task later. :-)
There’s some exciting things on the horizon for me….but more about them later. First, let’s hear about my past few weeks of adventures and shenanigans! We’ll begin in the middle of nowhere, out in the southern California desert. No, really, I’m not kidding…I know it sounds like I’m reading this verbatim from some Mad Max Returns script or something, but I was SERIOUSLY out in the wastelands (I’ve got pictorial evidence to prove it!). I was out in a tiny town called Imperial…which is about a stone’s throw from the Mexican border, and halfway between San Diego and Yuma, AZ. “What the hell was he doing THERE?”, you may be wondering….well, the gods of cycling spoketh unto me and said, “Danimal, thou shalt travel long and far to spread love and happiness to the people of the barren land.” So, not one to argue with the gods, I checked the map, and low-and-behold: the Salton Sea!!! I’ve been wanting to visit this place ever since I saw the movie “the Salton Sea” starring Val Kilmer!!! And, it was only 5 miles from where the weekend’s races were! Well, to make a long story short, I spent an amazing weekend away from civilization, and had to fun races too! I’ll be posting up pics of the adventure later….my photography skills must’ve been on the fritz that weekend…but luckily, the woman’s skills were on point! Pics will be available once I manage to steal her camera and
erase the debaucherous evidence upload the wonderful Salton Sea sights. Til then, toodle-loo….
