My Hans And Franz

Recently I've found a trick for riding more aggressively. No surprise or secret - just a fast tempo, head-banger song from the ROAM film. The song for the North Shore segment gets Todd going, and it's a good rocker, but the song "Rookie" by Boy Sets Fire playing during the Whistler segment gets me way pumped up. Take a listen:

I'm generally anti-poddie because I like to be aware of all the sounds when I ride, but I'm tempted to borrow one of my kids MP3 players and put this song on loop for a ride. Don't worry, one earphone only - I don't want to be one of those oblivious dorks you yell at on the trail and they still don't hear you. For now just replaying this song in my head gets me pumped up and pushing the speed.

P.S. Congratulations to Rio's Rider who again did very well with the 2nd song intro game.

I bought 3 songs from the ROAM soundtrack last night: Everchanging, Rookie and Bang Your Mullet. Good stuff that may give the techno beats some competition this summer!

Any song named "Bang Your Mullet", I gotta hear. OK, I listened to a snippet on Amazon - groovy. I missed seeing that song on the track list for ROAM - good catch.
