80* in March

Winter showed up late and left early. It must be Friday for Mother Nature this year.
Sick new jumps on the Power Lines by Ill Phil, Doug, Colman and Riccio.
Even the snow up in VT is gone as I ripped town loops in the dry dry dirt.
Hopefully Bolton Valley melts off soon. Little birds also brought great news last night but you will have to wait another week to get the official word.

Pre Season Update

The Grand Prix, Pro GRT, Eastern States Cup and select Gravity East Series events will be the bulk of the team's schedule.
  • The Eastern States Cup begins May 20th and runs smack into October. Competitors will visit Jiminy Peak, Massachusets, Mount Snow VT, Killington VT, Pats Peak NH, Atttitash NH, Plattekill NY and MT Creek NJ as they chase points for State Titles and the Overall Series.
  • Drummer Racing has added another Keene, NH ripper to the squad of 11 strong. Long time hucker ; Jon Parenteau will be competing against teammate Doug Wilson as both hope stamp the Cat 1 40+ class their own.
The snow is melting quickly and in the 50's the past two days in VT. I don't think we have seen the end of the snow but the end is near. Drummer was 90% clean on March 10th as XC laps were made over slushy ice flows between defrosted dirt. It was awesome to have half the team out on xc bikes.
