Wide Open Wednesday! @bigzcasa Rich Houseman railing down Kamikaze like a freight train. Respect! #wideopenwednesday #wideopen #notscared #hauling #bighouse #THR #legend

Hope everyone is having a Happy 4th! Stoked to hang with my Dad and enjoy some BBQ and brewskis!

Best of times with this dude right here @andrewneethling. So many great memories. We were both brought onto Mongoose in 2006, and spent the next 3 years touring the World having more fun than allowed. We did 3 World Cup seasons, and had some solid results! Always had a blast at post-race nightlife, always on the hunt for a good time! Extremely lucky to share the experience with such a cool person. Still great friends today. Stoked to see him still at it, having a blast living the dream. Thanks to @ecmtb1 for bringing us both on board and sharing much of the fun! Pics are: '08 WC Finals Schladming, '08 WC Bromont, '06 WC Brazil, '06 World Championships in Rotorua, '08 World Championships in Val di Sole.

#tbt So many good times with this guy, it would take forever to share them all. World travel, World Cups, World Championships, road trips, races, shop visits, parties, live music, ...good times with other friends who do the same. Even more impressive than his skills on the bike, or multiple wins and his cool, calm, and fun attitude. I could go on and on....plenty more positive things to say. But about this of my favorite races to be part of. 2008 Dual Slalom National Champs in Mt. Snow, Vermont. The previous year didn't go as well, but the focus and drive this time around was on point...for both rider & mechanic. Was awesome to see the smoothness and speed. Took the win and celebrated properly. Best of times! @ecmtb1

#waybackwednesday to June 21, 2004. Left the next day to cruise PCH and 101 up the West Coast to spend the summer in Whistler. Left in late September and continued through Alberta, then dropped into Montana to Glacier Nat'l Park, then south to Yellowstone, then east to Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park, then back through Colorado as the Aspens were prime, into Utah to Arches Nat'l Park, then back home to Huntington Beach. Not content to stop, continued through the Southern USA all the way to Florida. Spent a few months with family, painted my Dad's '62 Impala, then drove back to California to work for GT Bicycles again, which turned into an opportunity that would take me on several World Tours, working with the best in the World, and sharing all the fun and experience with some of the coolest people ever.
Anything is possible....just gotta work hard and surround yourself around like-minded people. Stoked how things have worked out. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ»

Quick spin on the Schwinn

Been rollin' split window busses since high school. Thankful for the experience and opportunities these old busses have provided. #travel #adventure #explore #roadtrip #goodtimes
