More pics from the NeverStop ride

Check this link for many cool photos from the 2008 NeverStop YangJin P Highway Challenge. The pics were all taken by Hsiao-long Chen. And get this; he rode the entire event on a folding Dahon bike, while carrying all his camera gear and snapped all the pictures along the way.

I am so lame by comparison...

And yes, the really fat guy at the bottom of the page in the Masi jersey is me. Usually the camera adds 10 pounds, but I think he was using one of those weird wide-angle, fisheye, fatass lenses.

I thought it would have been warmer in Taiwan than it appears. Living in the midwest we figure it *has* to be warm somewhere.

That must have been one heck of a hill to have the whole crowd dismount and push on a 75k ride.

You look to be in pretty good shape six months removed from a near-fatal crash. You just need saddle time is all.

I didn't see a fat guy at the bottom of the page! I did see #3186 in a sweet jersey and nice Masi socks, though.

What was the deal with the kerchiefs over the mouth? Was the air really bad that day or were they just protecting the lungs from the cold air?

And I agree with Sam and Joe; you look pretty good in those shots!

You look like you're in pretty decent shape considering what you've been through this year.

No where to go but faster...just don't forget to stop and smell the flowers once and awhile:-)

As for weight control, we MUST start adhering to the latest doctor recommended 'Push Away!' diet.
'PUSH your fat ass AWAY from the dinner table'!
SMART fellow with that HELMET! :-)

I need one of those Jerseys for the shop.
As long as it doesn't make anyone look fat.

Tim Jackson- Masi Guy said...

Manny- well, those jerseys were made just for the ride itself and the group from the distributor. That said, I am in the process of working on designs for new Masi clothing... so stay tuned!
