We have had about a month off from World Cup action, but have still been travelling a bit and ramping up for the next couple rounds. As a popular Norco event at Silverstar resort- Rider Appreciation Day or Rad-fest anyone on a norco bicycle got 50% off of lift tickets, which is a cool thing that norco does for the community. We were there for 5 days with a handful of our favorite people and riders from Nocro for a fun little bonding trip and photo shoot on our new Aurums. Fun place to ride, totally worth the trip, good flowt berms, long runs, no lines really. I rode one day on my range and was murdering the green challenger trail, which seemed to have an endless amount of rollers and gaps if you are willing to pin it. Anyway, once home, the following weekend, Bryn and I did some high end coaching at Stevens Pass. One day for women with both of us coaching, and the otherday for guys. Hot days, but tons of attention and a lot of specific knowledge most people can't teach. We had a good time, and have another weekend scheduled in September with the same set up. Don't miss it, spend the weekend in Leavenworth with your significant other, rider the park one day, take a class the next. Kinda limit it to people who are invested into riding by a couple of years, so it's worth it for us. Intermediate to advanced skills. That's where we can make the biggest difference.
Other than that lots of Intervals, gym time, ordering parts, etc. really excited for the next block of races.
In some unfortunate news, our team Rider Lorenzo Suding was in a car accident, adn will not be joining us for awhile till he's all healed up:( We wish him the best, as it's hard to have to sit out mid season, but character building.
So one more trip to Canada to ride in Whistler before we go, and that's it. Quebec, Windham, NY, Crankworx in Whistler, France, A week in europe somewhere, Worlds in Norway, Interbike, another camp at stevens, and then home:) Wish us luck..
Oh and congrats to my pal Arielle who just had a baby girl:) Alta.
