Been a bit quiet here the past few weeks, but it's for a good reason. (No, the blog troll didn't eat me.)

Right now we are in the very accelerated process of getting Pain on the Peak going. There is a huge amount of behind the scenes work being done and by the time the event rolls around I'm sure many of us are going to be completely fried, but it will be so worth it.
Venue negotiations, planning, sponsorship negotiations, permits, vendors, prizes, logistics, promotion, omg crazy.
I'm eternally thankful for the crew that's jumped headfirst into it. There is no way this could be pulled off with out you guys.
So far, the only pain being inflicted is the masochistic variety. We are beating ourselves up to get this pulled off for the CX community. We want to make the logistics around this race as amazing as the venue will be.
Look for some video's to be linked here in the upcoming weeks showing the final preps on the course!

On the racing side, my road race season was capped off with my first Criterium race over at Sunset Criterium. I stayed upright, and took a very tactical 13th after blowing myself up to win a $250 Wobble Naught fitting prime prize. I'm looking forward to CX.. Krugers followed by the CCX Clinics and then the start of the weekend CX season at PAIN AT THE PEAK!
