If you recall, I posted a contest of sorts about having our readers answer some questions and they can WIN STUFF FROM MY GARAGE. I had actually received some great entries from people all over the world. Some were good, others sucked, but none was as creative as the one you are about to read below. The contest winner is Brock Cremer of Australia. That’s right suckas, we’ve got international reach, guess what, Brock is also one of the founders of a great website called DirtGeek.com. Without further adieu, check out Brock’s answers. Oh and by the way, he won himself a nice MtnBikeRiders.com shirt!
1. (RL) I’ve often spoken about my “man-crush” in the past. In fact, I’ve gone through a few of them, but there’s one in particular which was my first crush, but who is he?
It all started when you were 9 and full of belief that the world was a good place. You were taken into this building with a funny shaped roof were you saw a gigantic red haired man with big feet, a yellow 1 piece suit, striped socks and a very white face. He introduced himself as Ronald.. Ronald McDonald. At first you were a little scared because he is a crazy looking clown, but then you felt at ease when he showed you the menu. You had 6 chicken McNuggets and some fries and washed it down with a coke. From that moment you had dreams of having all your meals at McDonald’s but it wasnt to be. Ronald has always been your “man-crush”. You look out for each other and always keep an eye out for the hamburglar who always trys to steal your hamburgers, but you and Ronald always prevail. You have foiled the Hamburglars plans more than the coyote has blown himself up chasing the road runner. You and Ronald went your separate ways after school and you always talk about catching up but it is always longer than expected. You have had other crushes come and go, but every time you see the golden arches, you always have that little smile and hold back a tear for your first true man-crush.
2. How many years has MtnBikeRiders.com been around?
We can’t bust heads like we used to. But we have our ways. One trick is to tell stories that don’t go anywhere. Like the time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for m’shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt. Which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ’em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you’d say. Now where was I… oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn’t get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones… What was the question again?
3. What year, make and model is the A-Team Van?
Mr T drove the A-Team van and also played Clubber Lang in Rocky 3. He had a fight with Rocky Balboa who also had a fight with a big Russian called Ivan Drago. Ivan Drago was played by Dolph Lundgren who is Swedish, but many Australians believe that he was born and raised there. Mel Gibson and Russell Crow are also claimed to be Australian but Rusell is a New Zealander and Mel was actually born in New York state but moved to Australia as a child. Before cell phones were invented and Mel embraced them as a tool to spread hate, he starred in Australian film Mad Max. Later in life, Mel was in the Patriot with an actual Australian named Heath Ledger. Heath was born in 1979 and just 4 years later in 1983, the A-Team’s van, (a GMC G-Series) was released.
4. Boxers, Briefs or Commando?

10. Is Justin Bieber lame, trying to hard or a douche bag?
