Yankee Doodle

Despite the snow this past weekend Ryan and Jacobi went out and rocked Yankee Springs. Got a few good pictures and a nice little ride report from Ryan:

'The single track was firm, the sky was clear, and the snow was exactly the right depth. I will also say that P-35’s, set-up tubeless may be the very best wheelset I have ever ridden. With the right pressure it felt like having 80 millimeters of suspension.

Having Phil Collins stuck in my head from earlier that morning couldn’t even ruin the rush of bombing the slick, ice covered, root infested descents that Deep Lake [Yankee Springs] has to offer. In the end, this ride taught me that when your coworker calls you a pussy for not wanting to ride in the snow, get off your butt and go. It may just turn into a great day.'

Now, as I sit dreaming of mild spring time weather and hot summer days, waiting for a blizzard to hit us here in the north, I've got another Alleycat race this weekend to tell you about. The Skidaddleisco Alleycat race out west in San Francisco this Saturday. You'll have a chance to get your hands on a Fusion track wheelset and some Deep V and B43 rims. Check out their website for more details.

As for the answer for yesterday's Wheel Department Trivia... the answer is simply the perfect storm of J-Bolt entering the room. In his words 'Like a tsunami bombi!'
I am still trying to figure out what that means.
