Silver City: Jan 11th
Silver City, NM
Jan 8th – Jan 22nd
I received my new training bike yesterday. It's the super-light and stiff aluminum climbing frame Javelin makes. The ride is very nice and it responds amazingly quick when accelerating. Since it is the bike I'll be using for training, it is equipped with Shimano Ultegra 10 speed. It's nice to have the new parts since the ones on my previous bike had given up the ghost about 2 months ago. I've been holding off on buying any new parts knowing that the new bike was on the way.
Today we rode easy for a little over two hours. It was definately a fresh alternative to the last two days of long intense rides. When we got back to the hotel there were 40 pairs of carbon wheels that had just been delivered. Over the last couple days the staff has been receiving team kit, bikes, luggage etc.- remember, it's still early in the season, so were still waiting for a lot of our race equipment. Nonetheless, I've never seen so many wheels in one place before, esspecially of such high quality...
