Cranky Monkey 2

Mike and I decided to do the Cranky Monkey race on Sunday since we were in town. It was the dirt crit. We went out the day before to preride so Mike could try some funky gearing on his single speed and I could see whether I was recovered from the Wilderness 101.

My sit bones were still very tender, and my legs were sore from a weights workout on Wednesday. But I just spun around the course a few times and felt okay.

So Sunday comes and we got there at about 9 so I could register and get in a nice warmup before my 10 am start. I rode a section of the early part of the race course that involved a little stream crossing and armour. I knew from previous races that I had trouble with this and often others did too. So I practiced it to make sure I could get over it.

Then off to the start. I entered the first hill in the middle of the pack of 8, but by the top of the hill I was in second place. Then down the single track and the tricky stream crossing. The woman in front of me went down. I almost ran her over, but hopped off my bike, ran up and remounted, getting in front of her. I held my place in front of her until near the end of the third lap. Actually, I had slowed down some, kind of hoping she would go past me so I could follow her a bit, but she just stayed on my tire. I could tell she was planning to stay there until the end and would then sprint in, so I decided to save a little so I could match her. But then at the end of the third lap, I was coming down the hill on the 495 trail, came into the turn with the man hole cover a little too hot, and my bike slid out from under me, and I somersaulted a few times before coming to a stop. A few people flew by, including the woman who had been on my wheel and another woman. I got back up, jumped back on my bike and flew around the time check. For some reason I thought this was my last lap. I went all out, and managed to pass the woman in second place, and pulled off my fastest lap time. However, then I discovered I had two more laps. I was spent, so I just went as fast as I could in lap 5. I almost fell again and the woman in third passed me again. At this point I just hoped I would not fall too far back from her and rest up a bit so I could sprint the last lap.

I entered my last lap feeling very slightly refreshed and pushed as hard as I could. Fairly early on I passed the woman in 2nd who seemed to have a mechanical. I was now in second place and I did not want to fall back again. The woman now in third looked like she was just finishing her repair, so I pushed on and gave it all I had. I ended holding on to my second place to the end.

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trad,e!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
