Well, we made the trip out to Las Vegas for the annual Interbike tradeshow. It was about 100 degrees with about 0% humidity which made the dirt demo a bit hard on the 'ol lungs. Good times though. Saw a lot, Lance Armstrong announced his return to professional cycling, he even raced cyclocross. We saw world cup champions, world champions, olympic medalists, professional cyclists of every type, an arena mountaincross race, pro crit finals, Sam Hill's new ride and a gazillion bikes and parts, 2009 will be an exciting year. Definitely a necessary trip to make sure we are on the cutting edge with whats going on these days. Glad to be back home though ... humidity sure is nice.
Thank you to everyone who made the 2008 Marquette Mountain Bike Park a success. The ski area management, all the volunteer trail builders, ski area employees, park sponsors, and especially all the riders that came out to ride made this great thing possible. This closes out the 2008 season, but stay tuned, things will prove to be even bigger and better for 2009. Thanks to all and check back for updates.
