First Foreign Alleycat, Paris '09

Paris 2009
Originally uploaded by dayabay
Well kids, I'm still alive, a world's passed in front of me, and I have yet to slow down to record it all. But this picture sums a lot of it up. I'm in Paris, having been connived into a non-stop overnight race from Amsterdam to here that took 30 hours and the fiber of my being. A few days later I've completed my first foreign alleycat in this spiral of a city, roundabouts and crazy traffic and one way streets. I was in the bottom 5th, place-wise, but I'm stoked. It was the most confusing thing ever, and the directions were in french, which I don't read, so C'est la vie! Check out some of Zach's other pictures to get a feel for the event, and I'll hopefully have some time to crack up a story or two soon!

Thank You Davey, even though racing a foreign Alleycat was something you probably wanted to do yourself.
