I did a shake down ride yesterday morning. After a little dialing in I got in a good couple of hours. This bike is a lot of fun. Quick, snappy and efficient. I don't know that I'll ever race this bike in a 24 with a ridged fork, but it might be fun to do an xc or marathon race on it.
Things are coming together for the West Virginia race the weekend after graduation. My teammates are taking care of a lot of the logistics, which I'm grateful for since I'm so busy with the last show of the year. Brendan is putting the two Songs on the fast track for Chris and I. The biggest news is from my sister. As most of you know she and our good friend Becky are major players in the pits. I got word that they'll be making it out for this race. How cool is that? I'm lucky to have such great people around me. The only way this could get better is if Bonnie and Finn were in the pits too. That will happen in July.
