We’ve been holding down the fort up here in Long Lake while Kevin ‘Frozen Fingers’ and David ‘Saddle Sores’ attend a training week with SRAM/Zipp in Arizona. The shop is doing great and we are having a heckuva February, but it looks like the two boys are having a good, painfully cold, time in Arizona.
What are they doing while in Arizona you may ask?! Well, take a closer look at the EPIC climbing they did on Tuesday the 12th….”A Cold Ride In Hell!”
Wow, that is some beautiful landscape and some BIG efforts. Nice job guys, you make us proud (and mildly jealous). Looking forward to having you back in the shop, but enjoy your Arizona stay while you can.
