This afternoon I finished up my last training ride before Team SmartStop p/b Mountain Khakis team camp starts tomorrow. So today marks the beginning of the end of the off-season.
One of my favourite highlights of the off-season was my trip to Walla Walla, Washington in October. This year's trip coincided with the annual cyclocross race at the Stanger farm. Charles always puts on the most unique cx race in the northwest, partnered with a legit Halloween after-party.
This year Charles took this annual "obstacle" of choice to another level, literally. What once was an over-under, now is a three level trick. Pretty awesome! Maybe I'll actually race it this year.
