boundaries should be tested… rules should be broken… maybe

Applications are coming in. Dudes and Dudettes from all over The World are showing interest in Back of the Pack Racing. Below is one of the latest ‘pieces of work’. The message is clear, the motivation is suspect. But, The Decision makers at Back of the Pack Racing HAVE… decisions to make. Will we open up The Crew to HARDCORE mutha f*^k’rs, mutha f*^k’rs that tell it the way it is?  Maybe. 

I wonder who this S. Baio guy is anyway?

Criminal History…… Pending trial outcome
I _____X____  pledge follow all of the guidelines set forth in the BPR operating instruction manual.
With the exception of the following…
  1.  will not always ride 29 rigid or single. I often like to bunny hop bum’s that live in underpass tunnels, i found this done best with full suspension and gears.
  2. I will not wear a uniform. I wear one at work, i refuse to do it during my free time.
  3. I will not drink beer. Something i don’t do
  4. I will not Blog. Id rather ride, sleep, play guitar, or beat my head against a spanish tile roof than tell strangers how awesome my life is.
  5. I will attend few if any events. I refuse to pay someone money so i can ride my bike with a bunch of strangers.
  6. I will not recognize your system of order. Just cause i am a dick and dislike structure.
  7. I will, from time to time wear tight shorts while riding my bike. Cause i don’t care what you think of my tight shorts while i am having fun.
  8. I will not use a smart phone. Life was better without them. I don’t care about anybody’s ride stats or strava place. The only real question is did you have fun? But then i don’t care about that either.
  9. I will not do a probation period. I did it once, not gonna do it again.
  10. I will not “race”. Race is a bad word, whats the point? I will refer to “races” as “event” or “ride”. My goal is simple, to always have the most fun possible.
