I'm kinda proud to say I choreographed this fight.
And here is a VERY brief bio I put together of myself. I just really honestly don't have time to write and post the entire thing however.
Recently Ricky's genealogy and ancestry was traced all the way back to the Mayflower Voyage. Both Edward Borba, later a Governor and Governor Bradford of the Mayflower are ancestors to Mr. Borba. This may explain his passion to fight for what he believes is right and never give up.
Ricky solo'd five different types of aircraft on his sixteenth birthday, solo'd a glider at sixteen, became a private pilot at age seventeen and started the world's first computerized aircraft multi-listing service before the fax machine was popular or widespread computer use. During this time, Ricky was also the Western Regional Advertising Representative for The Pacific Flyer, a major general aviation newspaper.
Ricky was a Junior Olympic AAU track and field champion starting at age ten which culminated into a track scholarship to college, which he chose not to take advantage of. During his youth, Ricky posted four consecutive years of no defeats. He continues running to this day. In addition to track and field Ricky was involved in other team sports, including soccer, which he played for 7 years. Four years in AYSO- American Youth Soccer Organization, 2 years of Club Soccer and one year in HS.
Ricky had early interests in architecture and the sketching of WWII aircraft. He built many plastic and balsa wood aircraft models. He also built and airbrushed 100's of army tanks and other military models. Later he got involved in HO scale railroad models.
Ricky is also an accomplished motorcycle street racer and got into much trouble in his youth when he was not on the race track, most of which was blamed on his warrior genes, as his dad was a US Navy fighter pilot. In high school Ricky was class president, four year varsity letterman and voted Most Likely To Succeed. He was President of his high school's Future Business Leaders of America club and Chess club. Ricky was in the Civil Air Patrol and the Boy Scouts Aviation Explorers while learning to fly as kid.
Ricky personally has assisted non-profit groups in raising over $500,000 in funds for their organizations. In 1995 he rode his bicycle from Oregon to Mexico 1360 miles in six days in a pledge drive for the Special Olympics. He was Deputy Grand Marshall and Honorary Sheriff for the county’s largest parade and largest non-profit fair west of the Mississippi. Ricky has been active in the Optimist Club, International and Kiwanis Clubs. He understands local politics having run in two consecutive elections for a city council seat. Ricky was appointed to the county's Council on Economic Vitality. He also served on the California Association of Governments. He founded the Neighborhood Mobile Watch Patrol which involves small businesses, chambers of commerce, police departments and cities. The entire program is privately funded. He also introduced a program where local businesses could sell their wares on the Internet, providing jobs, additional revenue for civic groups and increased sales volumes for many local merchants just as the Internet was getting started.
During the aftermath of the Northridge, California earthquake Ricky reconstructed a water purification plant for Unilab, a medical clinical laboratory testing corporation. His innovation in marketing has propelled The Car Wash Guys to celebrity status in many cities. Known for this enthusiasm, exuberance and motivation, Ricky Borba is a speaker for MBA programs at top colleges and universities.
Following exhaustive research and comprehensive comparisons of franchise case law, legislative updates and hundred's of other franchisor documents, Ricky wrote his own Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC), Franchisee Agreement with all exhibits. The ninety plus page legal document was approved by the California Department of Corporations in an unusually short timeframe. Ricky became a franchisor at age twenty-seven.
Ricky is currently in training for a long-distance bicycle ride from Canada to Mexico. If this works out he will ride from San Diego to Virginia Beach on a blistering 3-week time table. He also has his sights on setting the World Record for riding to all Continental states in the shortest time, using a high-tech carbon ten speed which weighs 16.7 lbs.
