On Your Left



Most of yesterday was spent getting caught up on a winter's worth of day time television.... waiting for our 8 pm start time. Is it just me or are commercials making my IQ drop?



I think I picked the wrong time and place to ride like a small child. With permanent dust clouds, loose gravel corners and the largest stxc field to date, my evening was starting to look a little less predictable.

You let off the gas for one second or make one false move... you're gapped. You let that happen once and pretty soon it happens twice.... Before you know it your motivation to suffer is fleeting. It's a lot easier to bury yourself when you are fighting for the top 10 vs the top 30. Ahhh bike racing, this lung cookie is for you.



On a side note, T Brown has been at the drawing board all winter coming up his latest 69er Fuel. I was lucky enough to take 'er for a trail ride yesterday and I can't wait for it to hit the market. Stable front end and a rear end that accelerates like an XC machine.



Anything that Travis puts his stamp of approval on, is worth checking out. Make sure to swing by the Trek tent at Sea Otter for glimpse.
