April Wrap Up

April was a busy month.
  •   2012 jerseys went into production. Big thanks to for replicating the '11 edition of the team jersey.

  • I finally got a real trail bike built up. Rode it today for the first time a week and it is a lot of fun.

  • Two trips to Plattekill that included awesome weather, my truck rolling out of a Stewart's, a dog urinating on Oliver's bike ; almost and the inspection of some new jumps on the Pro GRT course and Skid Marks.

  • Bolton is ripping right now.  1 min runs, 2 min runs, 3 min runs.
More Importantly the Spring Invite has been scheduled and with the new work to the Power Lines it will be an awesome event.

After the Spring Invite the season is into full swing as Mt Creek and Plattekill host Pro GRT / Eastern States Cup Races races back to back.   May looks busy too.

xc loops / BV Tester

This weekend was gray and dull but stayed dry in VT unlike in NY where the Plattekill Work Weekend got postponed due to weather and snow.
Finally got the new xc bike dialed in completely. Only got to ride town loops but there was plenty of stuff to try and to compare to my old xc bike.
Went and checked out BV Saturday afternoon. Still some crust left but not enough to keep the wheels from rolling. I was a little nervous when the 28mm stem showed up (really short); but once I rolled it down the stair of the apartment I knew it was a good move. BV Laps agreed with the stair test, despite the dust n crust the trails felt good just like mud.
