Mountain biking, olympics


08/8/08 -Beijing Summer Olympics opening ceremonies

Wactching the 2008 Summer Olymic open ceremonies ….wow! what an LCD screen those guys have.

Would love to have that in the new church building….and they could throw in the hugh scrim they are using at the top of the stadium too.

I think my favorite was watching the 2008 Ancient drums at the beginning of the show.

2008 drummers must have been pretty impressive in the “Birds nest”.

Really looking forward to watching the 2008 mountain bike competition.

President George W. Bush is an avid Mtn. biker.

Though he won’t be racing for the US Olympic Team, US President George W. Bush got to preview the Beijing Olympic course with the Chinese team in November 2005.

By the way he rides a Trek Top Fuel.

Maybe someday I could get him to come a ride some of our single track here in Prescott.

This is NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT, I just think its cool he rides a mountain bike.
