Living the Dream!
I am completely new to this. This is my first blog, first post and first time ever that I will get to represent an actual bike company! I was 1 of 10 people chosen for the new Airborne Bicycle's team called the Flight Crew. I found out about all of this craziness on the cycling forum that I am on the most www.sorba.org And a big "THANKS!" to Robina for posting up the information. Without that post, I probably would have never known about the contest. Airborne Bicycles had a contest to select 10 "Flight Crew" members to help test out their new bikes and spread the word about their comeback. I had to fill out some information: My name and all that normal stuff, my current ride, my years of Mountain Bike experience, a photo of myself and I had to write an essay on why I think I would be a good person for their team. I got everything ready and sent the email. I didn't really think much about it because I've entered countless contests and have never won anything. That all changed on March 23, 2010. I went to check my email like I always do and had an email with an exclamation point next to it that said, "Congratulations, You've Been Selected for the Airborne Flight Crew". I was kind of weary at first. It said that I had won a spot and needed to call a phone number within 24 hours to accept it. So I called the number, and it was the real deal! As a winner I get a brand new Airborne bike of my choice, a helmet cam, branded gear and a trip to the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California! I'm so excited! I've never been anywhere but the east coast, so I'm ready to show up and show off stuff for Airborne! Stay tuned for more updates!
