A guy on the singlespeed board visted Matt up in Leadville, CO and made a sweet pictorial:

Matt is a psycho rider. A pal crewed for another friend of mine riding his FS Santa Cruz at the way rough Brian Head 100 mile Epic and said that MC showed up on the SS 'cross rig complete with 30c Tufos, rigid, cantis, Cinelli plastic saddle, skate helmet, baggies, and no gloves with cotton tape on Dirt Drops. People were shaking their heads (most were on XC full suspension MTBs) thinking he was an idiot. He pretty much kicked a** actually...missing a sub-9 hour time by a few minutes (9:03) and finishing in the top 20! The people at the finish went crazy! Nobody gave him any crap after the race...that's for sure. My buddy (who finished over an hour behind him)talked to him after words and MC calmly told him he was running a 40x20 with 170s! Holy crap. Support this guy!
You should've seen that dude at the Cream Puff 100!ORman
