Gabriel Romeu and I recently assisted Eddie Albert and the US Hall of Fame by packing up the artifacts for shipping to Davis, CA. The HOF contents are currently sitting in a warehouse in the New Jersey countryside that I have dubbed Area 51. We were given a few items to offer for auction such as Hall of Fame lapel pins, water bottle, HOF timeline posters, Greg LeMond posters and LeMond's TdF championship bicycle. We should at least get 500 bucks for the bike. Nobody has called the house yet so I don't think Eddie and Vince realize it is missing.
The bike I am bringing will be the Rob Roberson with its new facelift from Joe Bell's house of magic. This is the bike I wanted to bring last year but it wasn't quite ready yet so I brought that ratty old frog bike that I found in Alex March's dumpster; a Rene Herse.
Ray Homiski and I will be doing the 50/50 raffle again this year. Ticket sales will start mid day Friday and we plan on pulling the winning tickets at around 9PM Friday night.
Have a safe trip for those planning on attending Cirque.
