What really makes me different from all the other applicants who are socially connected passionate riders like myself? Hereâ€™s what I bring to the table and why I am the right guy for the job:
Iâ€™m not one who generally brags about himself, but if my passion for mountain biking will earn me a spot on the Stumpjumper Trail Crew, then by all means, let me gloatâ€¦
1- Avid is not a descriptive enough word to describe me as a rider. Words like obsessed and addicted are a better fit. Just ask my wife. Iâ€™ve been riding bikes my whole life. The plan is to keep ridingâ€¦
2- In June 2006 I founded MTBikeAZ.com to channel my passion for riding. Since then I have been blogging, trail mapping and reviewing gear for the pure thrill of it. Comments from my readers about the usefulness of the site fuel me to continue developing it as Arizona’s best trail resource.
5- I offer you Arizonaâ€¦the harsh terrain will push the Stumpjumper to its limits. With year-round riding you can guarantee Stumpy will not sit in a garage all winter long. In fact it will never, ever, sit in the garage. Period.
6- I love Specialized already. We wonâ€™t have that awkward getting to know each other phase in our relationship.
Good luck making your decision. I don’t envy you. I’ve read through a lot of the apps and we mountain bikers are sure a passionate group. See you at Interbike.
