...and we're off

We had a good weekend of riding to finish out training for 24 hour Nationals which is coming up in 2 weeks. I broke out my rigid Jabberwocky for the weekend...oh man I think I am still suffering from some damage from the 24 hours of Conyers on a rigid hands are still in bad shape. I have a hard time controlling the bike on fast descents and fast technical bits. I've also gotten really used to the plushy Fox F29 on my Optimus it's a good thing I got in some re-acclimation hours on the rigid bike today just in case it needs to come out for backup duty at Nationals. We are leaving for Michigan tomorrow and will head to WI sometime next week.

Pics from today's tight & twisty ride...

The Rapidade Go Go Grape matches my Bubbalicious Jabberwocky..hmm.

Eddie's skillz

Dropoff to the left...stay on the trail

More of Eddie's skillz

The gap jump..Eddie did it, not me thank you. I'm kind of glad I didn't see him do it!

Hey, I recognize that trail...
Hope my homestate of Wisconsin treats you well at Nationals. I always rode well south of there when I lived in the state, WI has great trails when its not flooded or covered in snow.
