Just a few items of note

The important stuff first. According to my sources Milwaukee Ray's indoor MTB park will be open by the first of the year. So that's good news. I can't wait to get out there as I have been experiencing severe riding withdrawal. Riding on the trainer and riding on slippery snow covered trails just isn't cutting it.

I'm currently working on a helmet fitting video with the largest trek dealership in the country. Most of the video has been shot and I am in the editing phase of the project. It will be posted on a number of websites, including the Airborne and Wheel & Sprocket Facebook pages.

Lastly, I am still working on my latest MTBing video, but I need to take a trip to get the outside footage I need. I'd like to get to Austin, TX or somewhere similar to shoot some video. I'll keep you posted.

Welcome to the off season

Well, we had a great MTB racing and riding season. I won my first race, moved up to CAT 2 and snagged a podium finish there too. While I had a great time this summer, I'm sad to see it being replaced with frozen snow covered ground.

I'm currently relaxing and recovering from the season and feeling like I'm completely neglecting my bikes. It's only been a couple weeks and I miss riding so much. Hurry up spring.

In the mean time I'm working on a few video projects including a brand new MTBing video, a helmet fitting video featuring Kali Pro products and possibly a promotional video featuring a local pro rider. Beyond that training will start for Sea Otter early next year. I plan on competing in the XC, DH, Dual Slalom and Super D races all on Airborne bikes. So I have that to look forward to while I wait for Ray's indoor MTB park to open here in Milwaukee, WI.
