Tuesday into Wednesday. A quiet parking that was full vans and tents of DH boys and girls here to free ride is now filling with Factory Semi's.
Today, Thursday, we have registration, a course walk and hopefully a bit of a tune up on the old fork from the fox boys. It's real!! Here we go!
Yesterday I ran into a few old friends. It was really nice to see some familiar faces! Jamie Tilbury, and Jon stout are now wrenching for the Polygon Factory crew, fellow Vermonter Dave Trumpore who is now shooting for pinkbike and a handful of other teams! Also ran into fellow USA teammates Galen Carter, Alex Willie, and Shane Leslie. Stoked to be I such good company.
Here's a few pictures from the last few days!
The sunrises and sunsets are amazing here. " there's a fire on the mountain, lightening in them hills"
Every day has ended with a soak in the stream thatf runs down the valley. Ice cold. Perfect recovery.
