The start of the race is now less than two weeks away and we are all anxious to get on the road.  The four riders plus 13 crew members have been on weekly conference calls for the last several months and we are confident that we have all the details figured out.  The goal is to overthink stuff before hand so when we hit the road, everything is automatic and all we have to do is turn the crank. 

Speaking of turning the crank, I received a bunch of gear from Catrike a couple days ago and finally got the chance to assemble it and try it out over the weekend.  Catrike sent me a set of front wheels with super fast Schwalbe Kojak tires and ceramic bearings.  I am confident my trike is performing better than ever, and all members of the team are in the best shape of our lives!  Bring on The Race!


A few weeks ago our team rode in the Chico Wildflower.  While hanging out after the ride we met Richard Smith the founder/owner of Fluid Recovery Drink.  A little history on Fluid from

"Fluid founders Richard Smith and Dave Brown gained local and national attention for their research in nutritional biochemistry at Cal Pol State University and their work with athletes both nationally and internationally. Today they continue their sports science research and are developing new products to persify the Fluid line of recovery drinks.
