Last 4 days have been pretty off for me. I am 85% sure I got food poisoning from Olive Garden so I have been having a hard time eating lately. It has made training some days very hard to do. On a better topic I am going to be racing in the Xterra Las Vegas West Champs. I am interested to see how i will do. I have a very big aerobic engine right now and i know I am going to do need to do some tune up work in the next 2 weeks to get ready for the April 10th race.

On a side note if anyone knows someone that lives in Arizona and is driving to the race in Las Vegas,I am looking for a ride. E-mail me at it would be a huge help.

New bike

I got my Specialized epic 29er bike a few days ago I finally got a chance to go out and ride it. It was very impressive. I will say it right now no one has a better mountain bike then specialized epic. The cool thing about the bike is it has a brain shock that will lock the bad shock up on its own so when i am riding on smooth terrain it is fully locked up but once i bunny hop or go over some rocks and roots it will open it up. The next part of the bike is it is 29er vs a 26 that most people are used to. It rolls over rocked and stuff so much better. 29er is the way to go. I have a few videos of me screwing around on the bike.

THANK YOU GEARS AND SPECIALIZED for an awesome bike!!!!!

pick one up at gears bike shop you will fall in love with it!!!
