Cycling News Flash: Painman Shaves Head and Checks into Rehab


Cyclists abound are stunned by the news that Painman, an avid MN bike racer, has shaved off his locks, and checked into Hazelden. The news comes on the heels of Painman's solo 318 ride during this past weekend's snowstorm. His wife Hollie was quoted as stating "He's been riding more, and more lately, but I didn't think he was this close to the edge." Chad's 1 year old son was quoted as saying "Daddy Bald?"

Painman has the support of many local cyclists in his rehabilitation. Skibby stated "I will continue to regularly shave my head in support. I feel for Painman, and I wish him a speedy recovery." JimmerC expressed "I was worried when he couldn't take a half day last week to ride with Johnny B, Treb, and I. I didn't know it was this bad."

Current speculation has Painman getting out of Rehab before LSC spring training camp at the end of March. He is currently in negotiations with his doctors to remove his bike and trainer from his room, to better facillitate his rehabilitation.
