Shift Gets Schooled
Stunt Champ Chris "Teach" McNeil Joins Team SHIFT
The mental image of a middle school Latin teacher typically is more "stuffy dude in a suit" than "wild stunt rider," but Chris "Teach" McNeil plays both roles.
For slick apparel company SHIFT, McNeil's attraction wasn't his unique multi-tasking abilities as much as his performances at recent stunt competitions, where he's finished on the top spot numerous times. SHIFT's Brett Nicholas commented, "Teach is an incredible rider, and his commitment to riding excellence and the respect that he has in the industry made him the obvious choice to represent the SHIFT brand. We're looking forward to tearing it up together in 2007 and beyond."
What happens when a roadrace boot gets frisky with a tennis shoe? The latest trend in footwear that's directly aimed at the street crowd is the bootshoe, but though they look pretty cool and offer ankle protection some riders still complain about feel.

AC Farias is the true Godfather for many American stunters. He was ripping circles back in the '90s on his CBR before some of today's riders were out of diapers.
Last June he was shown on the cover of SSB doing one of his signature tricks, but since then AC's had a rough time of it. He had a poor showing at this year's Stunt Wars and hasn't been the dominant force he once was. The old-timer is still competing, though, and he makes numerous appearances at U.S. stunt competitions.

If you haven't seen Tek Teker Arif, the mulleted Mideastern madman who measures his wheelies in dunes instead of blocks, you should immediately drop what you're doing and head over to www.tek tekerarif.com and www.youtube.com/tektekerarif for a riotous laugh. And just remember-this guy is dead serious and probably gets laid all the time.
NASA Creates LeatherSuit With Built-In Potty
Lisa Nowak used one of her special astronaut undergarments to help her make a speedy cross-country trek to confront her lover's new girlfriend, and stemming from that incident NASA has developed a leather race suit for those with weak bladders or extreme laziness. Now when we don't feel like pulling over, we can let loose on the go. Thanks, guys.
