Well racing starts on Friday. Ben would want me to go race and "Fill R UP" So the plans stay the course. Cross just ended 6 weeks ago and now we TimeTrial Friday morning. I will defintely go play some craps for benny and swing by the Vegas Strip to drop some flowers for Allan Butler who passed at Interbike in 2005. Another great guy who I wish I had gotten to know better. I have no real Point just that they would want us to keep spinning. So with a huge smile I will race my heart out and I hope they are watching. sam
I think Ben was there for sure. I hit a $25 YO late Saturday night at the craps table and Got 2nd in the Road Race. Not a bad start to the 06' season. It brought me to tears not to be able to call him and tell him his little bro had a great day on the bike. Not sure if he would have been happier about the Yo bet or the race.

January 18th I was out riding some of the best snow of my life when I recieved a call that my Big Bro Ben(30) had passed away. I don't think at the time I realized what I had lost. The guy had so much energy and optimism that it couldn't be harnessed. He was a character for sure. Please take a look at some pics of Ben to remember him one last time. I will miss him more than he will ever know. sam k
