Pre Ride in Vegas

This is it! The start of the 2010 season. We’re out in Vegas for the XTERRA West Cup and boy o boy am I glad I’m not back in home in Boulder today. I’ve been seeing every ones posts about how awful the weather is. Well not in Vegas! We’re having a great time soaking up the bright warm sun.

Speaking of large planetary orbs, have you ever been on the moon? Well after checking out the race course here in Vegas, I have a good idea what it would be like. Void of almost any vegetation and comprised of rock, sand, dirt, and more rocks, this course is to unique because of the total lack of ANYTHING!

Check out the pics from the pre ride of the bike course with Shelby, Branden, Ryan, Devon, and James.

These hills are super steep and loose. Doesn’t look that way, but this was a tough hill to power up. Glad I was riding my new softtail Orbea Oiz. Nice and efficient.

Only 2 miles! Oh man this is gonna be a hard course!

Branden and I checking out Lake Las Vegas. I’ve joined the “white shoe club” this year with my new Shimano tri shoes. Flashy!

Navigating across this rocky section was really hard, but we found the perfect line. Sorry I can’t tell you til after the race 😉
