Team Training Camp 2011

It’s become a tradition of sorts – our annual sojourn away from a particularly dire weather situation in New England and a journey toward warmer climes. In this case, two weeks situated in Santa Ynez, California. This is wine country, just north of Santa Barbara and the setting for the movie Sideways if you’re familiar with that. We were less interested in the ample wine tasting opportunities than we were in the diverse riding options.

It was one of the wettest winters or record for the Santa Ynez valley and as a result, it was a green place to be with trees and flowers in full bloom, thriving on a ample diet of sun and rain. This was an ideal backdrop for two weeks of rides and relaxing. In fact, that’s what training camp is all about, right? Ride, eat, relax.

Remember that cycle, because it’s important:

EAT


RIDE


RELAX



EAT

RELAX

And in the few, fleeting moments where you’re not doing any of these things you might try the following:

Find metaphors for your near future in local farm animals.


Clean bikes.


Michael Jackson impression outside Neverland Ranch.


Construct self portrait bust.


Take pictures of inexplicable California shit.







Coming up: More on winter training, the first races of the year and updates on team roster, sponsors and equipment.

Thanks for reading.
