Congrats to the winner of the 2011 Team Jersey

I ran a contest last month for a really sweet 2011 Team Jersey.

The winner is: Dial Tone.

Here’s his creative answer. My favorite part was the Mister, Mr T. comment.

Chuck Norris never needed training wheels.

Chuck Norris does not wear a helmet. His cowboy hat is all he needs.

Chuck Norris has SPD cleats on his cowboy boots.

Chuck Norris doesnt ride a unicycle. He thinks thats just showing off.

Chuck Norris came up with the cycling phrase ‘I am the motor’.

Chuck Norris is the reason why the 29er was invented.

Mr. T is so tough, Chuck Norris calls him Mister Mr. T

Congrats DT, you should be hearing from our promotions department in regards to your jersey.

Win stuff from my garage: Contest Winner; Brock Cremer

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 Without further adieu, check out Brock’s answers. Oh and by the way, he won himself a nice 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 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?

D) Knicks

5. What’s the best way to convince the Mrs. to let you go mountain biking?

“Hey Michelle, check out this new handbag on the Louis Vuitton website”

6. How many marshmallows can you stuff in your mouth?

Challenge accepted! 24… but I was worried about chocking because I was home alone.

8. In a 3 drink comparison test we conducted, which drink came up as the best?


9. How many fingers am I holding up?

6.. but it is your right hand.

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

D) All of the above. I saw a girl in a cafe the other day who had the Bieber haircut. She looked ridiculous but made me an awesome coffee.

Kona: “We’re Seriously Stumped”

The good folks at Kona, makers of some sweet bikes, have a bike naming contest for their newest bike that has yet to be revealed. 1st prize winner gets a new Kona 6″ travel AM rig. Here’s the info:

“We’re Seriously Stumped” Name our New Bike Contest:

Over the last few months, our team of designers and engineers here at Kona have been hard at work developing a new, super light long travel all-mountain bike that incorporates our revolutionary 2-bikes-in-1 Magic Link Technology.

Imagine a six-inch travel bicycle that weighs less than 30 pounds. One that climbs comfortably and efficiently, but then—when all things start to get bumpy and quick—that same bike morphs into a wicked descender, with slacker geometry, better tracking and an additional inch of travel. No switches necessary.

Just submit your five favorite model names to us by April 15, 2009. Our currently-creatively-challenged-crew will then pick the top five entries. From there we’ll eliminate one name every four days by allowing the public to vote a name off the list. We’ll announce the winner and remaining four runner-up entries May 1st, 2009.
