Along with the bike came a smattering of sweet new gear. Some much needed new shoes, a new S Works MTB helmet topped the list for me. I have been daydreaming about all the sweet adventures next season is going to hold. Ouachita, Syllamo, Big Bear, are the first three things on my mind for 2010. Beyond that I am thinking Stage Race, and maybe one really long race.
I guess this makes it pretty Dang official. My new S Works Stumpjumper showed up in the mail yesterday, and along with it I official became one of the 8 members of the Stumpjumper Trail Crew. Needless to say I am totally stoked to ride this bike and participate in all the good times that the trail crew is going to have. Picking the bike up you can not believe it has 140 mm of travel, I am positive I have NEVER had a lighter geared MTB. Freakishly light.
Right now I am looking forward to Coronado's Challenge in late Novemeber, and the rest of cross season. I will be out on the trails as much as I can once this mess dries a little bit. And remember to anyone that can come and join us at Riverfront Park for a tuesday cross race. We meet at 6:00 and are racing shortly after. We have had good turn outs the first two weeks. Any lurkers out there wanna give cross a shot this is a good place to come see what it's all about. We had a couple of gals show up this week on brand new MTB's and wanted to see about racing cross. Pretty cool.
We have a new site that Specialized is building to house all of the Trail Crew and I will keep you updated when that is ready. I have been getting the background tour and it looks like it will be pretty cool. It certainly is going to expand my internet skills, and you know girls only like guys with great internet skills.
