next up - firecracker 50
since work actually likes me to work, i am opting to get there the day before.
will be spending a few extra days hanging out, will be a nice to actually train a few days absorbing the views. last time i was out for the breck 100 (before i got altitude sickness), i stopped a few times to take in the scenery during the race.
not this time - field is starting to looked stacked already and there is only 12 or so guys singed up so far.
also - news on the calendar - the last race in the endurance schedule in cali was canceled a few days ago. bummer as it was on the radar for many a rider - big cash and what seemed to be a good venue.
but - word on the street was the course was hellishly hard and things in general were not laid out very well.
and - news from the 'goat - soon to be a few new 29er's in the shop. an offering in scandium form coming from Salsa Cycles and what has to be one of my favorite crazy designs out there is a 29er from Eastern Woods Research is in prototype. And due note you fellow PA natives - EWR home base is in PA.
on a side note, it was pretty funny that a forum post on the net inferred a connection to EWR/Speedgoat and that the 29er EWR has the same effective top tube of the asylum.... dang, they got figured out!
with that - gots to run. short recovery ride in store tonight.
