Luke Mathison has recovered from the Airwalk flames and is now riding for Rome. Don’t know what Rome is? They’re not a company, but a snowboard syndicate, whatever the hell that means. Anyway, Luke is about three days away from being 21, but he managed to get himself a $300 fine for using a fake ID anyway. Yo Beat isn’t legitimate enough to get Banked Slalom credentials, but I didn’t want them anyway. (Besides, a helpful call from Transworld should straighten things out.) They Olympic team has been selected and it is: Shannon Dunn, Tricia Byrnes, Kelly Clarke, Danny Kass, Ross Powers, JJ Thomas and Tommy Chezchin. If you want to know my thoughts on this, read the Olympic rant. That is all.
