Hard to imagine we have teammates racing in 2 days when I’ve got a fresh foot of snow in my driveway! Be sure to post up some reports guys, I’m hoping you can make me regret not making the drive and get me even more excited for the season.
I’m still skiing for as long as I can get away with it but I have been itching to get on the bike for weeks now. I’ll follow Greg’s lead and post up my steed for this year.
My Redline Monocog Flight is decidedly less high performance than Greg’s and I’m ok with that. I broke my last derailleur years ago and never looked back. I’m a sucker for steel and this Japanese Sanko stuff is niiiiiice. Probably be a few new bits here and there, like some new Kenda rubber and maybe some Ergon GX-1 grips (I hear good things…anyone use them?)
As for training I am just getting going really. I’m going to start commuting to work a few days a week (30mi round trip) and get on the road a bit as well. Like Greg, I can’t resist the Ride Bully’s siren call and I will probably be heading out on his Double Pass Ride on the 22nd. Gonna have to hurt myself like that sooner or later, might as well get it out of the way right? Looking forward to getting our weekly NEMBA ride going in Central NH shortly after that as well as the kick off to the EFTA series and then I’m sure before I know it I’ll be at the Turkey Burner wondering where the time goes…
See everyone out there soon!
