Hi all --
I'm a little strung out from now 5 weekends in a row of work. But it's rewarding because we are on a tear.
We started in Park City, UT, where Jeremiah returned to form with a 2nd place in the XC, and 4th in the short track. Then to Breckenridge, where he was 1st and became the national marathon champion. Then, he went to Windham, NY for the NMBS event where he was 3rd in the XC and 2nd in the Short Track, simultataneouly on the weekend that I was in Downieville helping Ross take the win, with Sue in 2nd.
After Downieville, it was on to Mount Snow, VT for USA National Championships. Lea delivered with 4th in the XC, and 3rd in the short track, while JB rode out of his mind to WIN a second National Championship in the short track!
How do you follow that?
- Turn Jeff Schalk loose on another NUE 100 mile race, the Wilderness 101. Watch him take the win, with Chris Eatough in 2nd, and Cheryl S. winning the women's race.
- Host an XTERRA off road triathlon in Crested Butte, Colorado, just up the road from where Brian and Jenny Smith live. Watch them BOTH DOMINATE !!
- Go to Mt Ste Anne, Quebec for a World Cup, and watch Lea ride thru the pack into 11th, only 30 seconds out of the top ten.
Yeah, I been busy with the team, but really it's the riders that make it happen. I just try and create that environment for them to thrive. Above are Brian and Jenny, with the biggest Xterra wins of their career, on home turf in Colorado!
I'll put up more stories and pictures as they roll in. For now, click over to Sue's Blog to check progress on her broken leg from VT. Give her a shout, she's love to hear from you!
