We shared stories, beers, and bike rides. While he was here, he helped out in the shop (he’s an excellent bike mechanic) and Sam made a new X frame for him. By the end of the week, Halldor understood more of ins and outs of making a bike, and the querks and quarks of Quadra Island, while we learned about Iceland, Victoria and Halldor’s amazing riding abilities. The end result of the Iceland/Quadra Island connection was this X frame, complete with Thors Hammer and the colour purple.

As Naked Factory racer, Mical Dyck, took on the world stage at the 1st Cyclocross World cup of the season, the Quadra Isl. crew gathered around a tiny screen, drinking beers and cheering like maniacs. She rallied all the way to the end thru sand, gripping grass, maniacal climbs and heat, carving out 28th overall. Earlier in the day another Naked Factory Racer was seated waaaay in the back of the pack at 116th and somehow managed to weave his way skillfully thru and finish in 15th!! And on a singlespeed. Parker Bloom, that is some kind of super human feat! Great racing you two!!! Super proud that you are riding Naked Bicycles smile emoticon
