• Calm before the storm.

    Headed out to the Big Bear venue this AM to set up the Ergon tent and get things ready for Saturday and Sunday. After a quick set up and some meet-n-greet with some Ergon users, it was time to suit up for some chamois time in the woods with Solo Goat, Dan the Man of Speedgoat, and Titus team rider Steve Schwartz. And now the pics....

    Steve tackles one of the many rock gardens. As for me, I have yet to clean this.

    Same rock garden as above....but further down the trail. One bobble or bad line...and you are stuck jogging.

    Solo Goat on the move.

    Steve put'n his carbon Titus to shame!

    Dan the Man....not to be visually confused with Solo Goat....kill'n the dreams of rocks in West Virginia.

    After the pre-ride, we were greeting by Laird, who went on to tell us that some nasty weather was moving in. After hearing this news, I took down the Ergon tent in fear of it blowing away. On the drive back to the hotel....the skies darkened. As I type this...it's super windy and raining like crazy in Morgantown. No sweat though. It's supposed to be nice over the rest of the weekend. Tomorrow....we race.

    More pictures added HERE from today's hang-out at the race venue.
