long overdue thank you...

around mid-november i posted about a messenger involved in a hit-n-run. the man spent a night in the hospital but luckily is fine. soon after posting i was contacted by an ex-messenger...jonathan gray. as a matter of fact, he used to work for the same company i happen to be at now. sure the bike was used but it was in near mint condition. steering, two wheels, chain, and breaks...thats all that was needed. i could not thank him enough for helping out a fellow messenger. when i delivered the bike to phillip he could not stop hugging me...i didn't deserve the thank you...instead, jonathan(or chip as he is most known) is the person responsible for helping someone get back on the road to be able to make money.

i should have taken pics of the bike, phillip, and chip. sorry for not thinking about that. i guess i was more excited to hook up the messenger with the bike. so i've searched the interwebs and know that chip is part of team get-a-grip. anyway, here is the man rep'n on the cover of chicago athlete...



btw...not only is he a good person but he also happens to be a national champion...peace.

Wow Chip. That is awesome.

Don't sell yourself short Julio, you did deliver the bike.

Naaah. Chip's generosity far outweighs yours. Good stuff!

God dammit Chip, you know I love you more than any straight man should love another straight man, but THERE IS NO CAT 3 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. There is no Cat 4 national championship, no Cat 5 national championship, hell, there isn't even a Cat 2 national championship, road or crit. There is only Elite Men (Cat 1) and USPro. And the next time I see you, I'm going to shove all those cards that are still in my car up your ass!

The race may not have been billed as a National Championship, but to the average lay-person/spectator who saw this photo http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=115736&id=1143696924#/photo.php?pid=285723&id=1143696924 , might say that the holder of this was a champion. Just because you didn't have a chance to race (word has it he was nursing a concussion sustained in a post race drunken grab-ass fest) doesn't mean you have to hate! Better be working off those winter party pounds JAN ;0)
