Leaving Las Vegas

19 09 2017

For the first time in I don’t know how many years (five? six?) I’m not heading to the bright lights of Las Vegas for Interbike.

It’s for a few reasons…the main ho-hum reason is some competing obligations at my day job.

The others?

I’m a little burned out on the aforementioned bright lights and incessant sounds of go-go Vegas that accompany the show. I think it has a little to do with my Vegas trip last year that was preceded by a few chill days in Austin…hitting Las Vegas immediately after was a bit of a shock to the system.

And, It just feels like a good time to take a break from the show.

The good news is that the majority of companies have already shared their 2018 offerings ahead of the show. So chances are, I (and by extension, y’all reading this) won’t be missing too much.

I’ll be keeping my eyes on the Interwebs though over the next few days to see if there’s any big reveals…and sharing what I come across (probably on the Facebook page first).

Frankly, what I would like to see is Tracer Finn recreate this iconic Bob Osborn shot of him jumping his dad, Mickey Finn, back in the day. That’s the kind of radness Interbike needs!

Word on the street is that Interbike is moving to Reno next year.

Perhaps, this change of venue will see me back, cruising the aisles of Interbike. If only so I could use the headline, “I did some shots from a bottle in Reno, just to watch it die.”

P.S. I am going to miss rolling with the Sin City Crew
