It was an adventure and our first trip across the country with Oscor. Somehow in a two day time frame I cleaned up from a muddy CX Nationals, packed up my life, loaded the car, and headed to the Southwest. This year due to weather we took a different route than normal. I-80 west to Denver - south on 25 - west on I-10. The first night we made it to Walnut, IA and found a Super 8. Not bad....

It took about a week of laying low before I was feeling back to normal. Luckily just in time for an ass kicking 6 hour ride on the AZ Trail on my new Fuel EX 9. The new bike is so awesome. Fat tires, big suspension, and the new coolest feature in my opinion is the dropper seat post! I'm so glad I picked up this bike to rip up some trails out here and save a little wear on tear on the race bike.

The 6 hour ride put me out of commission for a few days. It took a lot of birthday pizza & ice cream cake a few days later to finally recover!
THURSDAY: Bug Springs 4 hour mtb day with Andrea
FRIDAY: Rest day...nope how about a jam session on Mt. Lemmon w/ Tommy D and Phil Gaimon.
SATURDAY: OK now a rest day and 4 CX races on the internet!
SUNDAY: New friends, big bikes, and the Milagrosa trail followed by pizza & Superbowl
MONDAY: Peariso's arrived for some Arizona Trail Action & more burritos.
Yep I'm tired, but thats what its all about. Time for bed so I can do it again tomorrow! Yee-hah
