2009 Sponsors! SWEET

Greetings Rabid Team Seagal Fan! This off-season has been a busy one for us. In between climbing hills, snow-biking, and opening new Official Chapters "Up Nor't," we have also managed to acquire a few more badass sponsors! It looks like we'll be riding the D9 Bulldozer to the best year yet: 2009. Holy Shit.

This year we are still flying the flag high for the same sponsors that we had this past year:

Pabst Blue Ribbon - Our favorite non-pretentious beer to drink, and it's even better with friends! Big thanks to our rep, Dave, for being nothing but supportive of all of our endeavors!

The Hub Bike Shop - Truly, one of the most knowledgeable shops in town. Road bike, mountain bike, they ride 'em and they know 'em.

Kona Bikes - Manufacturer of what has gotta be the coolest, highest-performing mountain bikea out there. Oh yeah, they make a pretty slick CX bike too... ***cough 2008 National Champ cough cough*** Check out The Hub Bicycles to find out more info about Kona Bikes!


"But Casey! I already know how badass and heinously-awesome those guys are, but what are these news guys you're talking about?!?! Quickly!!!" Geez, man - take some lithium and cool yer jets. Starting this year, you'll be seeing these guys on our jerseys:

Velocity Wheels and Rims
- Some of us have already been using these rims and wheels, and can already vouch for their baller'tude. Purpose built, and in any color you want - including $$$GOLD$$$!

Cory the Bike Fixer - Located in Milwaukee, this excellent shop will be supporting our Team Seagal Milwaukee (MKE) Chapter, headed up by Shop Ministor.

Stella Blues Restaurant and Bar - This bar in south StL (Morganford and Fyler) will be supporting us this season, and it will also serve as a great place to hold regular super-secret meetings. Eat, drink, and be merry.


All these organizations really do make a lot of things possible for us that wouldn't be otherwise. We really are looking forward to building our relationships with them.


In other news, we had an incredibly fantastic ride on the Pain Train this past Sunday. We had such a good time, and had such a good response, that I'm wanting to do it again sooner than later. I think I'd rather do the original Death By Hills route sooner than the "Version 1.2" that we're working on. I mean shit, it's just more baller. So look for an announcement again in the coming week or two about the next time we try to organize it.

I like that idea. Count me in. If not this Sunday, how about next?

Casey Ryback said...

I think that might be an option, just as long as I can manage the work thing!

We need a shop gimp that we keep tied up in a leather suit in the back of the shop. We will let him out of his box on Sundays so we can both go hill climbing. He would be so grateful for the human contact that he would provide excellent customer service.

I'll be in if I can kick the allergic reaction to this spider bite. I should have some sweet snot rockets on the way in to work.

"Don't you see me meditatin' over here?"

I wanna join the Team Seagal crew, what's it gonna take? I'll pay my dues and buy a uniform if you will allow me to.

In other news...a free sixer to any member of Team Seagal who attends and races the Rim Wrecker...as long as you don't question trail conditions.

Can you deal it with it?

Dudes, I have a description of Seagal's latest masterpiece, entitled "Against the Dark:"

From Amazon -

"Katana master Tao (Steven Seagal) leads a special ops squad of ex-military vigilantes on a massacre mission, their target: vampires. On the post apocalyptic globe, sucked dry by bloodthirsty vampires, a few remaining survivors are trapped in an infected hospital. Tao is their only hope and he knows the only cure is execution. Now it's time for the last stand against the flesh-eating vampires and there's nothing left to lose but the last of humanity."

How about that Columbia Chapter?

Mason Storm said...

What does it take to join.....
Ride with us, party with us, help put on races with us(BTW you must also be 21 as per our Pabst sponsorship agreement)....if after a little while we all agree, well then your on. Columbia? I am all for expansions, but we would have to see some effort/results/maybe some non-races in bocomo. As long as we keep it so SS MTB racing is the main focous I see no reason any expansion couldn't benefit Team Seagal!

ok, my knee has finally un-snapped itself, so I'm ready for my second shot at Cremins Green and beyond.

This ride is so badazz I think a belt buckle or at least a smashed PBR can to put on your belt is needed to show you finished it.

For all who care...

The Illinois death/relax with happy ending ride is semi planned for March 8th. I know there is a MTB race that day but it will be a marsh. Details to follow.....
