THIS EPISODE Mike is with the team at the Joe Martin Stage Race in Fayetteville, AK, and because of some unfortunate timing, has no guest for this week’s podcast. Flying solo (with a bit of assistance from team mechanic Chris Kreidl and team soigneuse Astrid van Uden), Mike attempts to entertain and amuse our faithful listeners for a little over an hour with random musings and anecdotes.
Choice moments such as “My Twitter account is a tribute to honesty,” “I don’t feel like you can be as honest when women are around,” and a speed round of Mike’s favorite game, “Fuck, Marry, Murder” highlight this bizarre and disjointed podcast. Maybe we should have just called the episode, “Deep Thoughts with Creedosaurus Rex.”

We’re also grateful for the continuing partnership with Chris Smith and Lazer Helmets. Every podcast we’ll be giving away either a Lazer helmet or pair of Lazer sunglasses. All you need to do is mention @LazerHelmets or @Lazer_Vision on Twitter with a clever tweet that conforms to the week’s contest rules. If your tweet is chosen, you’ll win a Lazer item.
This week we’re giving away an urban/commuter helmet and Cappuccinolock from Lazer. Just post a photo of a situation where you might use the lock and hashtag it #lazerlock. You’ll need to tweet at @lazerhelmets and also hashtag #OpenMic to be eligible. A winner will be selected next Thursday and announced on Friday before the week’s podcast. Good luck, and as always, thanks for listening!
