After months of waiting out production delays and volcanic ash clouds, I’m thrilled to report that The Cado Motus 2010 Test Drive will soon be underway! Got word from Geert just yesterday, along with a tracking tag and instructions for the test ride. I am stoked!
I’ve been skating Cado (Mogema) frames for years. My first pair of 100mm skates were the Rollerblade Lightning 10’s with the Dual Box frames. I still skate these frames, having moved them to my Rollerblade Problades to replace the stock “spider frames” I snapped a few years ago.
Lately, the 110’s I’ve been rolling are the Cado 4×110 set up that I’ve borrowed from my buddy The Schneid. With this test drive, they’re sending the whole shooting match – the Pro 110. I can’t wait to see what the boots feel like, not to mention get to roll a fresh set of MPC Road Wars! This is gonna be motherf#$%in’ fun! Happy motherf#$%in’ mother’s day motherf#$%ers!

5/7/10 Training: Skated 13 motherf#$%in’ miles on a beautiful Colorado afternoon. Lot’s of hills, which were made exponentially easier BY A TAILWIND! Nothing make you feel more like “King of the World!” than conquering a monster hill at top speed with little to no effort! Yeaaa Haaaa! Also had the pleasure of getting honked at and flipped off by a woman in an SUV who literally came out of nowhere to be behind me coming down a hill. The kicker was, her bumpersticker said “Have Love For All”… Mother#$%ker!
5/8/10 Training: Super-secret workout was really difficult this morning. Kept cramping up and it seemed like it took forever to get through all the sets. Took and hour and a motherf#$%in’ half to get through it!
