First day at camp!
Ventura.... host to strawberries, big yachts and other cool stuff that I don't even know about yet. Yesterday the team met up down at the Ventura Marina to get all of our bicycles situated for the first few days of camp. Tossing a few last items, the mechanics and riders tickered with the setup of the bars, saddles and shifters with many parking lot coasting trials. To make things easier later in the week, steerer tubes were left with a little extra length (so that we can play with our "drop" - vertical distance from the saddle to the top of the bars which can make the difference between a super aero euro pro and your casual Sunday rider). In the late afternoon, we finally made it out for a nice ride on the waterfront. See more on the ride here
Today...business starts. Veloimages is here. Cyclingnews, PEZ, Velonews, HeyBuckshot, Felt Bicycles and more will all be making apearances throughout the week.
Time to hit the stratosphere!
The drive down the hill from the homestay is very steep,
I had to throw the contrast up just to get a view of the road.
On our way home, it took 3 minutes at +410 watts just to make it up
The team congregated at the Marina in Ventura. Chris and Josh worked feverishly to finalize all of the team's training road bikes. Prologo saddles, Williams Wheels, Felt frames and Microshift components = NEW ROCKET SHIPS!
I like this!
