It’s down right pathetic how long it’s been since I updated the blog. SO much has been going on in the last few months. We have been working, riding and enjoying the good life around here, and I guess something had to take a back seat.


Cross season has almost come and gone. It’s amazing to think that my favorite time of the year is almost over. This cross season has been awesome. I forced myself to upgrade to the B’s this year and I’ve gotten a lot out of it. I know 62nd out of 64th really doesn’t show it, but getting it handed to me each and every week has been awesome. You learn so much by riding with faster people.


The courses this year were better than ever and the heckling was out of control. The dollar prems by my friends became a staple of the A race and I even caught the black night this year, well, he crashed in front of me. At any rate, this season has been awesome, but both my bike and I are glad it’s coming to an end.


I’ve raced each and every week for the last there month’s. My bike is only 3 month’s old and it’s completely hosed. I’m on the 3rd bottom bracket and a host of other parts are completely trashed. It’s time for a rest.


Thankfully the holiday’s are just around the corner and that means good food, good friends and some winter training. This year I’m really thankful for everything I have. I really do live the good life. I’ve got amazing friends, a wonderful family and a very fun job. At 24 a guy really just can’t ask for more.


This should be a fantastic year and we are looking forward to sharing it with our continually amazing customer’s. You guys make this place awesome and we are thankful for you. This year we are looking to create more opportunities for everyone to get to know each other. I’m lucky to know all of you and I think that you all will have a great time with each other. Stay tuned for some fun event’s and rides!
