Can You Pop a Wheelie?

May 22, 2008

I have a new blog for my unicycling team. I’ll try to keep this one focused on music, rap, and original tunes. All the unicycling posts (unless it’s a dream and turns into a dream rap) from here on out will be at teamunicyclemax.wordpress.com. My dad, brother and I are racing against 34 other teams from all over world starting June 16th in Nova Scotia. I started a team blog so you can keep track of your favorite U.S. Unicycling Team as they gear up for a truly epic race. We’ll try to post updates while we’re on the road. Check it out and wish us luck.

…like a wounded animal

April 7, 2008

It’s been a few weeks since my qualifying ride for Ride The Lobster, and my wounds from the heinous crash on day 1 have all healed. I was surprised then to see on the Official Ride The Lobster Blog, a nice funny little post about me and my qualifying ride crash. The blog seems to focus more on the progress of international riders, with countries like Korea putting together internal races of their own to get the 3 best riders in their country to go to Nova Scotia. We’re hardly a USA Dream Team, and I’m┬áprobably not even the best rider in Philadelphia, so to be included in a post on a blog that highlights the best of the best around the world is pretty cool.

So we’ve registered as a team and put all of our chips in the middle of the table. All systems are go. Now we just need to focus on getting in shape, getting our gear in shape, and getting the four of us up to Nova Scotia.

In DreamRapper news, I got back together with the band yesterday after taking a month off to focus on moving and unicycling and healing. My hand is still a bit messed up so my guitar playing is a little weak. We’ve got a lot of new songs and we’ll be heading to the studio next weekend, so stay tuned for that. Also, our new apartment has a little more space for my music gear. I should be able to finish up the last of my dream raps soon.

Ride The Lobster

January 4, 2008

2008 is here and that means one thing and one thing only: Ride the Lobster is fast approaching. This June, Nova Scotia will host a historic unicycle relay race with teams competing from all over the world. The event is 5 days of riding and covers 800km. My dad, brother, and I will be representing Arizona, Maine, and Pennsylvania. The race will be tracked live via GPS and GoogleEarth.

What does this mean for DreamRapper? Well the dream rap project is coming to a close. I have a 5th dream rap in the hip-hop tumbler getting polished, and I’m still playing guitar with DuPont Menage and STC. Once I get my new unicycle, most of my free time will have to be spent riding and training. If you’d like to check out the latest news on RTL, check out the official Ride The Lobster┬áblog.
