Ladies and gentlemen I direct your attention to the racing paddock for a partial introduction of 24ThunderTAB contestants:

First up is the original, the one that started it all. The tiny bike with a garage sale pedigree beyond reproach...the one, the only ThunderJet!!! Back from a lengthy rest after being tossed from a bridge at last summer's ThunderCross, ThunderJet is ready to take on all comers at both QuarryJet and ThunderTAB!

Making its first public appearence at ThunderPersuit, it wasn't until ThunderSlalom that Lip Gloss made its racing debut. Don't let that lipstick embossed saddle fool you, this dual suspension speedster means business!
Also making its racing debut at ThunderSlalom, Vertical Threat was exactly that, taking the downhill pylons as easily as most city buses take Formula 1 courses! Brakes? Who needs 'em?!!?
Turn 'n Burn, the master of Thunder On Ice. A skillful blend of BMX fury, anodized art and precision quality at a wine in a box price! Don't get in the T 'n B's way cuz there's no stopping it! No, really, there's no stopping it....
Finally, a new comer freshly rescued from the St. Vinnie's basement bike sale. For now it's known as the Rocket but who knows what tranformation will take place in between now and Sunday. Only the flood waters in the Kitten Factory basement will know ...
As we said, this is only a partial list as P-lip, D*Pow and Zack all harbor possible entrants. And then there's the tiny bike which Revolution Jeff only refers to as "The Pain Killer".
Teams for ThunderTAB will be chosen at random before the race, a beer will be slammed before each lap by the rider of that lap and whatever team crosses the line at the end of 24 minutes wins. So essentially business as usual.

that's brilliant! only the kittens are colourblind and thought it was brown and the "brown rocket" sounded too much like poop. hmmm, the "poop rocket"...there are possibilities...
