Riding the SoCal high school pump track

After yesterday’s work, all we had to do today was shape. And ride. Did I say ride?

Thanks to a 40-something-strong crew of riders, parents, coaches, neighbors and supporters, we had the track shaped, watered and ready to ride in just a few hours. Rock.

Tomorrow is the big show. We’ll have riders/coaches from several SoCal high school teams, a Turner demo fleet, El Monte RV, food and general awesomeness.

I’ll be teaching skills throughout the day. Special guest star Chris Powell will teach me a few things.
