“I’m gonna throw it way back. I wanna give a quick shout out to one of my first sponsors I ever had that didn’t know they sponsored me. Thanks for my first pair of riding shoes – Specialized’s hot from Putney Bike Shop. I stole ‘em and put my sole-less hiking boots in the box. The duct tape wouldn’t work anymore. Sorry man, I rode in ‘em every day. I wore a wool jersey and raced a slalom finals run in it at Mt. Snow NORBA one year for you. Dope shop in a cool old barn in Vermont! Thanks for not calling the cops if you knew. I love you guys. Sorry!”
