Hey Marty! A long time ago you showed up at chequamegon, I’d used up all my life chances (up to that point) riding my Mtb around and found myself 3rd wheel behind you with Rishi taking us into every rock, root and potential pinch flat he could find.
*

It was a severely educational moment, Rishi was the first person I’d ever 1st hand observed, maliciously try to win. (he reinforced it a few years later with some trees at the red wing national)
*

I was always impressed with your sportsmanship and still am.
*

My 2 cents, but I do some things now that have some rather tremendous implications medically and I decided long ago who I am chasing people around on bikes. Today is easy, that stuff was painful!!!!
*

Anyway, kudos!
