Fergifest Lawnchair Race 2012 Video Sunday, April 8, 2012
Super good fun up at Fergifest again this year. I stopped being optimistic about my chances in the lawnchair race years ago, so that was a load off my mind.
Once again, I built my racer the day before and had no idea how it would ride. But I did take the liberty of ripping off Paul's design, which has dominated the NasChair racing circuit for several years, so when I shoved off from the starting line I felt good. The sled was heading for the barn in a straight line and me and my 6 skis were pointed for greatness.
And then Rock passed me. And Ben came in from the left. Or I came in on Ben's right, however you want to look at it.
Rob Taylor not only won 5 bucks betting against me, he came up afterward with this news: "Rombach, man, you're too old for this . . . what are you doing?"
Taylor, for your information, I . . . I don't know what to say to that.
Last week of steelhead season and the rivers have cooperated by dropping and clearing up, so get out there and make us proud.
