Kenda ad in Dirt Rag

So I was at the local REI on Saturday picking up some new hiking shoes and grabbed the latest issue of Dirt Rag Magazine. When I got home and got to looking at it, I noticed a couple things: (1)they review the Voodoo Dambala 29er -- a frameset I'm considering, (2) there's a picture of my friend Eric in "The Rider's Eye" section, and (3) I'm mentioned in the Kenda ad on the inside back cover! How cool is that? My name is tucked in between David Wiens and Team the bottom left of the word "Discriminating" the bottom right of the main picture...and you can read my last name just in front of the handlbars of the bike.

I've been sponsored by Kenda for three (3) years now and really love the tires, but the customer service is great. I get to see Jim Wannamaker at Conyers every year because Kenda sponsors the 24 HOA series and Jim's always there. It's great to see the industry folks hanging out at 3am just as tired as the rest of us, but there to support you when you need it.

Thanks for the sponsorship, Jim, and for the mention in the ad!
