I'm nearly famous now.

This was in my Email box last night.

Mr. Giegerich,

My name is Eric Mandel and I am a reporter with the Telegraph Herald. I spoke with Lance Andre about a story we are planning to do on winter/night bike riding and he mentioned your name as someone I should talk to. Besides chatting with you a little about winter biking, we were hoping to get some photos of you (and hopefully some of your fellow riders) training on the snow. My deadline for the story is Jan. 3, so hopefully we can set something up relatively soon. Feel free to email or call me at 563-588-5748.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks again.

This is gonna make me a real impotent man now. Now, I hope this sudden found fame doesn't ruin me. I am going to need a manager for my fan club. I will need to have writers manage my blog. The paparazzi will become  just part of my daily activities. Perhaps I'll get a drug addiction, enter and escape rehab a couple of times, and give weird news releases. Fame has it's price yanno. We famous people do have our very own struggles that come with our greatness.

Ok back to reality. The reporter did call and conduct an initial interview. Next is a picture shoot somewhere out there on a snow trail.

My legs are a bit toasted 4 good snow rides in 5 days, and I'm hoping for 3 good snow rides in the next 4 days. Knee please behave.

Peace out,
DAve

I WILL NOT LET THIS NEW FOUND FAME CHANGE ME. SORRY BILL, I CAN NOT ANSWER THAT DIRECTLY. ALL ENQUIRIES MUST BE SENT TO MY AGENT.

Can I claim to have known you back when you changed your own flats and used Slick 50 on your chain? Back when you waxed your rims to stop the brakes from squeaking? Back when you got numb nu++s from riding to the Safeway for bread? Back when you wore tube socks and cutoffs on rides? Back when you got your first cycling jersey from Bike Nashbar, and it was lime green? Please have some underling ask your agent, and then have your agent ignore my request. That would be cool!

People magazine will no doubt want interviews with the siblings.

Wow - that's cool. Be sure to post a link to the story when published - or scan if not online.
