Sad News

Unfortunelty I had to make a quick trip up to Michigan last night after hearing one of our families friend had lost his long bout with cancer. Josh Jasman was diagnosed with cancer at the young age of 14 and fought a very hard battle for 5 years. He lived strong and no matter how hard things got he always looked forward. Josh has set a great example and can be inspiration to anyone on how to fight through pain and livestrong.

So while up in Michigan I decided that maybe I should get my mountain bike and start preparing for Iceman, which is only 15 days away. I headed out this afternoon and rode the trails around the State Park here in Bay City. It wasn't anything challenging, but still I could tell my handling is so out of whack. I'm hitting the stronger breaks to hard, overstearing, and creeping around corners. And all that was just trying to get out of the driveway. Luckily there's no single track at the park or I might be still there lying on the ground hurt. Ok it wasn't that bad, but I'm going to need at least 2 more days on the mountain bike, which I guess can include my preride on the course Friday.

I saw the new paint scheme for our Masi 3VC Team Issue frames for the 2010 season and they are pretty sweet. Our bikes will be geared up with Sram again which is awesome. I've grown to like it very much. If you're not on Sram maybe it's time you take the leap. Also our new team kit designs are in the final stages, I personally haven't seen them yet, but from what I hear they are going to be pretty outlandish.

Two more days till the Hilly Hundred, not to be confused with the Breezer True Hilly Hundred. This one is far more popular, less hilly, and half the distance. But they have fried chicken.

Breeze On
