Interbike conversations, SMS’s and random meetings
Someone who came up to me at the Interbike show: “I read your blog all the time! What’s wrong with you?” Not sure if she was referring to me looking sick or perhaps my mental state.
Tim, ROAD art director/editor, upon our arrival to Vegas, “Weren’t we just here?”
“I hate both of you!” My response to Raleigh’s
“I’m surrounded by idiots!” Bicycling Magazine’s
Text message from Michael Cody of Jelly Belly: “Oh man are you ready for this? You gotta ask Powers about this joke we played on Bird”
I was driving to the Industry Cup when I received this and never found out what happened. Now I’m really curious…
Text message from
Text messages from Tony Cruz after I suggested to his wife that he learn a new song on his bass guitar and not practice at at night:
Cruz: What, are you trying to sleep at at night?
Browne: Learn a new song!
Cruz: What do you prefer? Abba
Browne: Play some Slayer!
Cruz: It’s on now.
I’m afraid I’ve encouraged Tony in the wrong direction musically.
Met the Belgium Kneewarmers blog guy. Good dude and he has more hook-ups than I could ever dream of having!
My conversation with Mario Cipollini as he is rolling out of the Venetian to ride to the Industry Cup. I was waiting at the valet for my car to drive to the race.
Browne: “Ciao, Mario. Neil from ROAD scomparto. I interviewed you last year. Grazie.”
Cipo: Looking a bit confused, “Sure, sure” and rode past. I don’t think he had a clue what I was talking about.
