Just as I've been making time to re-enter the biking world I was recently instructed not to mountain bike until after I have my aortic aneurysm replaced. In addition to the obvious reasons for getting it fixed, this prompted me to schedule my open heart surgery. Being a 35 year old non smoker who genetic doctors determined has no predisposition to aortic disease I'll admit I'm anxious about the problem and the fix. Maybe I can trade a bike company for the rights to film a commercial, maybe an X Games stunt where a rider jumps over me right as they divert my blood to the heart-lung machine. Or a tire company in exchange for me having a front view of an MTB tire tattooed over my chest scar. Or I can devise a program to use recycled bike tires for aortic grafts instead of Dacron. The bizarre possibilities are endless! What I would love is to film a spoof of the Airplane scene where the treating doctors have STP sponsor logos on their lab coats.
