In breaking news from Fayetteville, David “Blue Ridge” Yount was the winning pick in Cycling Experiences 100K contest. Jim Artis, blogmeister and owner of Cycling Experiences has been running a contest to see what date and time his blog would receive the 100,000th visitor. Well, that happened just moments ago.

Yount’s selected date of December 4th at 5:01.10 p.m. was the closest to the actual winning time. Yount donated his winnings of $100.00 to Artis’s favorite charity, which in this case turned out NOT to be moi but the Rails To Trails Conservancy – Southeast Region.


Now living in the Los Angeles area, Yount is a native of Waynesville NC where he was one of the last student athletes to letter in 4 sports at Tuscola High School. Following graduation, he matriculated at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC where he received a full football scholarship. He earned the starting wide receiver job as a freshman and held that position until a back injury cut short his playing career in his sophomore season. He completed his Communication Arts degree in 3 years and entered the field of cable TV communications following employment with WYFF in Greenville, SC where he travelled with the Clemson athletic teams.

Upon moving to Los Angeles with his wife Kimberly, he travelled the world shooting video and producing film for the Children’s Miracle Network. He later became head cameraman at the NBC affiliate in Los Angeles. He moved to the FOX network and worked in both the sports and children’s programming arenas until the birth of his daughter brought about a need for more family time. He continues to work with FOX in production and enjoys time spent with daughter Lizbeth and wife Kimberly. He spends time on the trails and in the hills near his home on his RANS Dynamik Crank Forward bicycle.

Good picking, my man!

Until later,

- Zeke
