Dave is a source of frustration and envy to some of his pedal pushing dirt bike buddies, 'cause he defies the age old adage of "no pain, no gain".

For someone who has performed surprisingly well in the State Series mountain bike circuit for a couple of seasons, Dave, who worked at Clarence St Cyclery on w'ends, has an aversion to hard training.   He reckons it is all about quality and not quantity, but his buddies evidence neither in training.  It seems as though rat cunning, 'n hell for leather doggedness often delivers when it counts.
