Well, 3 stops later I finally made it with all my bags to Morzine, France. Nothing like the ol Seattle, Chicago, Newark, Geneva route, thx lars. Heard a lot about this place, big Mtb destination. Our mechanic Marshy lives here, and so far he's right, it's really nice. Chair lifts on both sides of the valley, steep mtns, bikes everywhere, sunshine, gardens, river. If only my bike was built and I could keep the ol eyelids open. Saving the fun for tomorrow. I'll be based here for the next 5 weeks between races, so lots of time to do stuff.

LaBresse, Fra next week, Italy a few weeks after that, then Switzerland for worlds.... Later.
