First things first.

But the question remains, which comes first?

Hello good people, and welcome to AHTBM’s six hundred and thirty eighth post. Only twenty eight more and I’m going to light a firecracker in celebration.

Before we get down to business, I will once again make the announcement that as of right now, I have a brand new kit design available for 2013;

In this run we have skin suits, vests, arm warmers, Jerseys (obviously) of both race cut, and club cut…. Practically anything you want. But please note that the order window is only open until December 16th. After that I will only have club cut jerseys available through the partnership page (where, as you can see, the old style of jerseys can still be purchased.)

I know I said the last time that the kits were guaranteed to make people ten feet faster. Due to a slight miscalculation on my part, the truth was stretched a bit with that statement. The fact is that they only made people eight feet faster. To make up for my error, I have ensured that the new kit (which will match the upcoming socks) will actually make people an unprecedented twelve feet faster.

You practically have my word on it.

In news of bikecycle racing related events, Darren got in touch with a heads up, which I said I would assist in giving some traction to, and then immediately forgot. Then he sent me a reminder, and I wrote this sentence which you just read;

Hey duder Kinevil,
Favor to ask, we (BikeSport Racing out of Ballard) are hosting the WA State Cyclocross Championships on December 2, 2012 in Arlington, WA.;

I was wondering if you could help spread the word, as you are the true master/minister of information.

The proceeds will benefit Vet Bikkes(dot)org – they donate bikes to vets coming back from the wars.

It would be hella appreciated and people around here would think they are cooler than catshit to be mentioned by the Stevil / AHTBM.

In light of their efforts, I guess I should change my wordage to include ‘bikesportcycle racing’, and I don’t know about Ballard, but in these parts, catshit is pretty friggin’ cool. I thank them for their enthusiasm.

In other news of Bikesportcycle racing, Jenny Oh is up to her old tricks with this year’s running of the Supermarket Sweep alleycat/food drive;

Last year they netted almost eight thousand pounds of food which equals a lot of full bellies. If you reside around the Bay Area and you find that you have December first free, swing by and get in on the action.

If I’m in town, I might just swing by the after party with a bag full of food, because I hate bikesportcycle racing.

Unless there’s a lot of carnage involved, and then I’m game.

Case in point, from Backyard Blamanda I got a shout regarding a recent party she hosted in representation for her employer;

So, here is the video of our race. It goes from the build out to the race itself. If you get drunk and take your pants off… it’s like you are almost there.


To simulate time spent with friends located in far away places, getting drunk and taking my pants off is always the first step.

When I was a kid, we took to mopping down our half pipes with a Coca-Cola/water solution to make them less slippery. By the looks of the way gravity was making everybody their bitch, a similar treatment might not have been a bad idea.

Finally and in conclusion, I’m sure the lot of you (or at least the ones to whom this matters) have seen the following;

What I would like to know, is exactly what it means.

Perhaps the world just isn’t ready for the news.

As per their standard mode of operation, RFTC is making first things second, and second things first.

      Yeah, yeah. I got that, but I want specifics, man. Unless it involves Coachella. In that case, I’m doing away with myself.

        jawbreaker is playing coachella, but we will have to wait for RFTC for some other year, i think.

    The guy that won the Chrome race reminds me of Farva from Super Troopers.
