We’re here!! After a little over 4+ hours in the FJ (we shoved 5 people in there), we made it to Gunnison. On the way, we stopped over Salida for some coffee, lunch, and also paid a visit to Absolute Bikes. If you’re ever in Salida, that shop rocks!
After getting to the hotel, we headed out for a quick 1 hour ride today. We only rode a small portion of the course, but it was enough for me to realize how hard Sunday is going to be.
I got to ride with ALMOST the whole US Team (Dave was busy because he is the supa fly race promoter)
Left: Yuki, Jeff, Namrita, Eddie, myself
Namrita and I. She is awesome!!!
Jeff took a video of us descending. Order: Myself, Namrita, Yuki, Eddie
Yeah Yuki!!! There is a lot of big granite rocks on the course!! Yikes!
Jeff getting my back…. and watching it. ha ha!
Eddie O’dea raging the DH!
Tomorrow will be another short ride, and trying to get used to riding at 8000′. I’m a bit anxious for the race… I hope I feel good…and that I don’t crash spectacularly!
