Monday: FOX Racing Shox press camp day 1. Learn about the new goods.
Tuesday: FOX Racing Shox press camp day 2. Ride the new goods.
Wednesday: Arrive at Sea Otter. Set up camp, walk the courses.
Thursday: DH practice!
Friday: DH practice! Cheer on my buds in the amateur slalom.
Saturday: Dual slalom! Qualify in the middle of semibro, go a couple rounds.
Sunday: Race downhill. Mid pack in semibro. Drive to Marin.
Monday: Show the bald brute of Marin how to ride a pump track. First Invitational Pump Track World Championships!
Tuesday: Start driving east.
Wednesday: Drive, drive, drive. Ah … home!
If you see me at the Otter, say hi. Red jersey with leelikesbikes on the back.
Where abouts in O.C. you going to be???
My parents live in Lake Forest (I grew up in Bitchen Viejo). I hope to ride Aliso-Woods or thereabouts on Sunday. I’ll check email Saturday, so if you want to ride …
I’ll be at the Sea Otter. I’m flying down from Southern B.C. and entering my first DH race ever (I’m 16). I love your book. Hope to see you there. (i’m the one on the Brodie Hellion)
Hay man have a blast and stop being a wussy. Put all that training to use and just rock it…
Good Luck Lee!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks guys. The sun just peeked out — could be a good sign!
