Good morning from Oxnard, CA, it is day 3 of camp and we are off to a banging start. We have a whole new staff - mechanic, directors, swanny and it's pretty kick ass. Bill and Andrew, our mechanics, are working their butts off to get us exactly where we want to be on our bikes, working out new bike issues and setting up our time trial bikes.
Michelle, our new swanny, has given us all rubs, sorted all our clothing(which is a task, since it's a new sponsor) and is off and running like we are old buddies.
Kevin and Pat, well oiled machines they are, we've had meetings, talked training, schedule and what is expected of each rider and talked to each of our coaches. I feel really good about this year and it's only day 3 of camp.
The girls are the best teammates anyone could ever ask for. There are only 2 new additions and they have slid in like they have always been a part of the team.
We have new bikes this year - Diamondback, new clothing - Mt. Borah and new SRAM 22!
Today we are off to climb 3 canyons, I don't want to give away too much but we are going to put in some stellar work this week and I will be cross eyed and hangry(hungry/angry) by the end of it. When I'm constantly hungry, I know it's be a productive week - I love that feeling!
So here's to 2014 and all it's glory, see y'all on the road.
