I’ve mentioned briefly that we are shop designing in Bristol, TN. We’d like to tell you more about it. Ashley’s dad Glen Addair started out as a professional motorcross racer with Ashley and her brother, Dustin growing up traveling the race circuit in an excursion van and a trailer full of dirt bikes. We go to AMA races with Glen now and can’t sit still a minute without people coming up to us; riders from the days before stadiums and Red Bull sponsorships, bikes with the engineering of the 80′s, and jumps that were plain scary, ten years before “extreme” would become a buzz word. It was even before Nintendo’s Excite Bike. I’m not calling Glen a veteran of the sport, but more of a pioneer. Today he is still doing it, coming up with new ideas that make acting crazy both more efficient and in good style.
Thus, the WIRED ride shop. Glen’s ideas, Dustin’s graphic design, and Ashley’s artistic direction for the shop space. We also couldn’t do it without our step brother Zac, who is a skater and snowboarder and will run the shop day to day. Glen and Zac have been traveling to the races and ski resorts for a while, showing the wares at the WIRED tent, in a van like a valiant self-backed rock band or dirt bike crew.
The website will be up this week, we have it laid out with the verbage sketched. I wanted to run it by you first.
