    That's very cool! I have a friend who shattered his hip and pelvis. He was telling me all the things that they had to do to him. I had to sit down half way through because I got light headed. I can't believe the things they can do to a person these days. And, I seriously don't know if I could go through what he went through. What you guys can do is simply a miracle. I had my face reconstructed after an accident. That was almost thirty years ago and I wish I could find that surgeon and shake his hand and thank him. What he did for me was amazing and life changing.

    It's a lot of fun! Very demanding but rewarding. Just wish I had more free time.

    Keep up the good work! My GF is having some calcium deposits removed and a torn rotator cuff fixed on the 22nd. Dr. said 3 to 6 months in a sling.

    Thats cool. I live in Chandler,AZ but didn't make it to the race today. Watched it on TV. You guys need to fix that 54 car. Do you get a chance to ride during the season? There are a lot of trails over by PIR. Grant

    I'm a chemist by training. I spent over a decade in the pharmaceutical industry doing drug discovery and design, focused mainly on disorders of the central nervous system. I was lots of fun at parties Eventually restructuring and a changing job market forced a change, and I am now a project manager for a contract pharmaceutical manufacturer. It is less dynamic, but more stable. I can appreciate that given my current family obligations.

    I'm on the other side of this coin, designing and implementing clinical trials. What'd ya work on? I'm in neurodegenerative disease and TBI.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I used to be a corporate marketing cube jockey, but last summer I finally decided to leave and do something I truly love. End product... way more work than I ever expected, but I'm finally doing something I look forward to every day. I've never been able to say that before.

    I own a mountain bike adventure travel company.... so I ride bikes, take pictures, and hang with other like-minded people all day. (Chasing Epic Mountain Bike Adventures ? All-Inclusive, Guided Mountain Bike Trips to Epic Destinations Across the Rocky Mountains and Desert Southwest - I won't make this a spam post)

    I am a planner by trade. I used to work in affordable housing but recently changed jobs and now work in transportation with my state DOT. I get to touch some trails and bicycle stuff but it is not the focus of my job.

    I now take the train to work and have a 10-12 mile bike commute as well (depends on which station I get off at).

    Smmokan, I am excited by your venture! It is an idea I have entertained as well so good on ya for taking the plunge! New Mexico is in the southwest too - don't forget about us! Best of luck.

    Yep... I'd love to expand into Santa Fe/Taos/Angel Fire in 2017. For now though, I think 7 locations will work.
