Number one reason I do what I do;

Here's the honest reason why I do what I do; my wife.

Yeah, I love my job and I would do it because I love to do it, but I work as hard as I do because of the woman who has been such a huge part of my life. I love her a lot more than I love my job and all the bikes I get to play with every day. Right now, as the year is coming to a close, I find myself stricken by the fact that my wife has been such an instrumental part in the fact that I have this kind of job. She is the one who told me years ago that I need to follow my passions and that I should believe in myself and the whacky set of goofball skills I have. She's called me the King of the Dipshits for years and I guess she's probably right- as she frequently is (but not all the time- don't believe her if she tells you she's always right).

As I try to come up with witty things to say about this past year, the real Best Of award winner is my wife.

I'm a lucky damned guy; thanks Honey.

That's sweet. You are both lucky to have each other.

Tim, now you can tell your wife that you are the "SOFA King of the Dipshits"

You wife calls you the "King of Dipshits", my wife calls me "Mr. Oblivious".

Not sure which one is worse:-)

That's good stuff. My wife calls me "Captain Obvious." Hmm.
Anyhow, I for one can relate to every letter you threw down on this one, Tim.
Without my wife, there would be no pro (elite) team, no repeat title efforts, no cycling, no career, no . . . well, no life really.
So, agreed, best of award to the wives.
