You want me to go where? And ride my bike too! You want me to go where? And ride my bike too!
Just as I thought that my season was going to start winding down for the year, I get the news. Me and my XC bike are going to Italy to compete at the World Mountain Bike Championships for Canada, yippee. My first trip to Europe, and it didn’t really sink in until I boarded the plane in Calgary due east to Toronto. A short four hour flight, nothing to it, and the seven hour flight to Zurich wasn’t that bad either (of course being bumped up to first class didn’t have anything to do with it at all, none what so ever). Though, as per usual for me and plane trips, only about an hour and half of shut eye was managed, in between free wine and an old Star Trek movie.

At a mere 20 years of age, Carlo Deickmann has earned the respect of his peers.

He started riding trials at shows in Germany and his first bike was a red, team model Killer V from Cannondale. “I still have that bike,” says Carlo. I remember watchin' former Cannondale Athletes like Rockwell, Lopes, Martin Ashton.” When asked where he gets his influence from, Carlo says he loves skateboarding and watching NBA Basketball. “Both of these sports have so much style to draw inspiration from. It’s fun to take that creative energy to riding.”

Subaru-Gary Fisher Welcomes Heather Irmiger Subaru-Gary Fisher Welcomes Heather Irmiger
Heather Irmiger – winner of the NORBA NCS cross country at Brian Head and sixth place overall in the NCS Series – has joined the Subaru-Gary Fisher team for 2006.

“Heather was already a big part of our program last year,” says Team Manager Jon Rourke. Heather raced for the Gary Fisher sponsored Tokyo Joes team, and at National events based her endeavors out of the Subaru-Gary Fisher team truck. “She brings such a youthful exuberance to everything she does, working with her in the past has been great and it will be even better having her as an official member of the squad. She really earned this. She had a great year last year with eight NORBA podiums, and will have more time to focus on racing and training this season. I am very optimistic about her potential.”

California, Super Sessions, Tumbleweeds, and Making Danny a Man California, Super Sessions, Tumbleweeds, and Making Danny a Man
First, before I get into this epic tale I’d love to say thanks to a few people for making this all possible and keeping it fun. Huge thanks to Mike Flaherty and the folks at e13 for putting on the super sessions for the riders. Thanks to Decline Magazine for throwing an awesome party, and their coverage of the events. I’d also like to thank Banshee Bikes for sending me down there, Danny for use of his Golf, Ross for being sweet, and Reid for taking pictures and being the most amusing person I have ever met in my entire life.

Mick Hannah onboard Cannondale for the next 2 years Mick Hannah onboard Cannondale for the next 2 years
The Thunder from Down Under Strikes Cannondale-Mick Hannah signs a two-year deal--putting his ultra-smooth style onboard Cannondale

The best way to describe Mick Hannah’s riding style is ‘silent storm.’ He has an ultra-smooth style that outsmarts the most technical courses on the World Cup DH circuit. Yet in 4X, he has the ability to aggressively find the line that puts him past the competition before they’ve even snapped out of the gate.
