K-Swiss is one of our site sponsors and as with all of our indispensable advertisers, we jump at every opportunity to be as obsequious as possible. We need them desperately and as long as they have butts, our lips will be puckered.
In truth, we have a totally "Rock n Roll" relationship with our advertisers. They enjoy fun and and a little outrage as much as we do. To demonstrate this, we'd like you to check out K-Swiss' new "Tubes" video. IT'S AWESOME. It stars that guy (Danny Miller) who plays George Clooney's little sister's fiance in the totally great movie, "Up in the Air," and he's a downright hoot! LINK

Sometimes words aren't enough. Pictures do a much better job. You've heard the expression ,"A picture is worth a thousand words," haven't you? It's probably true, but how did the poet or philosopher or chronic drug user who coined this expression arrive at such a round number. Aren't some pics worth only 936 words? Aren't some worth, say, 1014? We digress.
The Lakefront Days Triathlon, the 5th edition thereof is Saturday, is a very cool event. Too bad it's full, huh? Record turnout, actually.
This Mosquito Won't Suck...

Gear West Bike & Triathlon is always trying to come up with ideas to get their customers excited about multisport events. They always look towards the functions they would like to attend themselves, and find a way to bring those to everyone. They feel they have accomplished this with the Gear West Duathlon, Gear West University, and with the Midwest Multisport Series and its giveaways. That said, they have come up with a new concept for multisport racing: the Mosquito Man Duathlon.
The Mosquito Man Du is a run-bike-run-bike-run event, designed solely for fun and enjoyment. This will be a professionally produced event with as much emphasis on the fun as the competition itself. And there will be plenty of competition.
Mosquito Man Du will feature the following:
