24 hrs in the Sage calls the race “the best race at a party“. Well… it is. Show up next year.

So, as always, we learn many many lessons at these ‘races’, here is a few that we must share with the general public.
- Beer wastage. Young skinny hipsters have no IDEA what a rare resource beer is, let alone free beer… from Oskar Blues. So, a Skinny Hipster biker dude was pouring beer like a bartender…. letting the foam run out and run out and run out until the cup is totally full of foam free beer. Kinda dumb. Ok, really dumb. Let the beer settle out dude! It’s free. Be patient. Don’t waste good beer. We’re watching you. No Joke.
- Be very careful with the latch on the Porta-John. You may think it’s latched, then a dude roles in and catches you…
- single speed, of course
- frame that is early 80s or ‘earlier’
- LOTs of RUST…. it works, ask The Durango Kiid.
- size XXL or larger, for us big dudes
- FENDERS! fenders are COOL. customer fenders are AWESOME!
- top tube (DzNuts) pad
- coaster brake
- front Vee brake
- ‘comfortable’ seat, I mean ‘saddle’
- platform petals
- ergo bars…. old skool, that enhance the ‘standing’ & ‘sitting’ & ‘walking’
- the 3 DEFINED speeds to Single Speeding
- bell AND (or?) horn
- a bad a$$ rider… that WILL be me, I hope. Someday.
…because I was trying to be responsible and sleep and stay ‘hydrated’ like real ‘racers’. This Fire Booter is SERIOUS S*^T and I missed most of it.
- ever witness a Golf Cart go over The Fire Booter?
- me neither, but it happened
- ever witness a 4 wheeler go over The Fire Booter… and catch on fire?
- me neither, but it happened
- ever witness a dude drop a chain going up The Fire Booter?
- me neither, but the dude survived. I was told.
- ever witness a dude pop a tire and flip a bike over The Fire Booter?
- me neither, but the dude didn’t die. I think.
- What’s a Fire Booter?
- it’s a jump, over a fire pit
- show up to one of the BIG 24 hour races, you may see one
- Sea Level to 8000 ft. Quite the Challenge for a 6’3″ single speed turned spear fisherman. Kinda dumb.
- Hang’n all weekend at a 24 hour race, but show up with no beer. AND make no attempt to show up with beer. That’s not dumb. That’s Dumber than Dumb.
- How many times is The Judd gonna see Drew and not recognize him? But it really ain’t my fault when he shaves off the Keisel Beard.
A Final Thought
The 2 time World Champion, The Durango Kiid, is gonna have some wicked competition next year. I always achieve my goals, I just don’t have many goals in my old age. BUT a World Championship in 2014 IS MY GOAL. Enough Said!
