Leif Valin quit riding?  Are you sure?

Leif was at the last 3 York Jams...

If you are for real, you probably spend enough time on your bike that there's no time left for talking sh*t on message boards.

Of course, if all you do is talk sh*t on message boards, you're probably not as good or as cool as you think you are.

I suppose I better get on the list. 39 in a month. Never really quit, quit but from 1998-2002 had enough major knee issues that I didn't ride very much.

Pulled this from you tube.

Josh Marsele (aka Axlepeg) stopped riding flatland from 1990-2008. He's recently logged about 25 hours back in the saddle and got some footage which I edited together with his direction. He's 36 years old and riding a 1983 Skyway TA race frame.

im 42 in feb flatland to me is a blessing, an addiction, natural high at this age im greatfull all we have to do is ride, one thing i cant fig, thats why the youngers[ ie kids that walk past us when we jam etc] are not interested in learning our challenging but noble craft.
