By Vernon Felton Photos by David Reddick Once a year all of us at Bike head for the hills to sample the latest bikes and products on location, somewhere, far, far away from I-5, cubicles and smog. The annual event is called Bike Week and this time around, we and some of our friends descended [...]

I’ve always found the Olympics to be full of absolutely awful, irrelevant, boring and resource intensive sports... Table tennis isn’t a sport, it is something you do on a rainy day in the common room of your bible camp. It is a game, not a sport.

Gee Atherton 3. [...]
By Vernon Felton To anyone who’s ever considered a job in engineering and thought, “Nah, that’s not for me–too many slide rules, too much math, too much time imprisoned in a dungeon whilst being forced to crank out meaningless equations relating to bridge pilings, traffic circle dimensions and waste-water treatment cleansing cycles.” Well, apparently, a [...]
By Sal Ruibal I’ll bet you thought I’d be writing about the “Crybaby Mountain Biker” dude this week. We’ll get to him, but let’s deal with some other dopes, too. “Crybaby” is tangentially tied in to this because he’s Belgian and was trying to make the Belgian Olympic team.
