It was The Bomber's course today so the rules were one cone; no prob; two cones- your run was a DQ. The race started at 12:30 with no sign of rain or bad weather in site. The Bomber also said that the winner of the race would be determined by talking the each racers fastest two runs and combining them for the lowest combined time to determine the victor.
The cops showed up around 1:00 just when we were getting started; and Hackett quickly threw a few lines ending with the word "Sir" to immediatly dispel their little power trip and get back to the race at hand- Damn coppers- always looking to be the Buzz-Kill! Just gotta' know how to baffle 'em with bullshit.
Enter Maysey. Dude was on fire. While most of us were stoked on running a sub 34, he was posting times of 33.92, 33.21, 33.08, 32.54, 32.95, 33.24, and 33.01! His combined time of 65.49 blew doors on the rest of us. Equally impressive was Kosicks consistancy; 2nd place AGAIN! with a combined time of 66.80 and his fastest time clocked at 33.08. The Brown Bomber was charging hard as usual but just couldn't catch Maysey and Kosick for the top spots. The Bomber ran a 33.46 and a 33.45 sealing 3rd place podium finish with a combined time of 66.91.
Other standouts were Hackett over taking Chicken and Evans for 4rth, and Lynn Kramer smaking down some men to take 10th! Way to go Lynn! Most of us finished up the day by getting our Tranny-On at the Poway Skatepark which is fun as all hell!
In the end the results look like this:
1st Mike Maysey 65.49
2nd Brent Kosick 66.80
3rd Richy Carrasco 66.91
4rth Dave Hackett 67.61
5th Chicken Deck 67.73
6th Steve Evans 67.82
7th C. Bark 67.90

It's Diego Bucchieri!!
Dearest Mike and Tum Yeto,
My name's Bryan and I'm from Santa Rosa, California. The picture I drew for you guys is of Diego Buchieri. I'm not quite sure how or why I made it. I saw Diego at the Wallenberg demo last year so I took a picture of him and drew a picture of it. As far as how many fingers or toes I have.....last time I checked, it was somewhere around seven.
In the above photo you can see the "Duty Now for the Future" crew. If you look closely you can see Josh Beagle, Brada Staba, Heath Kirchart and one bushey hair'd Steve Olson.
Go pick up this issue of FHM to see it in real life.
Its the last issue of FHM, the month of February, it may still be on news stands!
