For this jersey, I wanted something very
different. Well, all the jerseys are different, but different
than even the rest. I decided to try a wrap-around design.
Most jerseys have something on the front and back and then may have
something on the side panels but few are really a 360 degree design, so
that inspired this one. I wanted it to be a shockingly bright to
match my yellow/red/pink giraffe-spotted bik
e and it is shockingly bright.
I was in a race once coming to the finish and the announcer saw me
coming in and said, "And here comes another racer...Holy Cow!
Look at those colors!" So yeah, they're bright. There was
another race where they had a newscrew filming and after the race they
looked around for someone to interview and they kind of picked right
out of the crowd.
This next series of shirts was done by a Minneapolis airbrusher named Kent Lind of Air To Be Different
I'm really happy with his work. I come up with ideas and often
say, "Here is kind of what I want. You fill in the
details." He's come up with a lot of good ideas and sometimes
says, "That won't really work" and comes up with something
better. For example, I said, "Cover up the logo on the center,
rear pocket." And he comes up with the moose tracks.
The picture above was taken at the MMBS race at Buck Hill in
Burnsville, MN and is one of my favorite race pictures of the
year. The one below was at the MMBS race at Mapleag. Good
