|Fit Bike Training|
Since my Dimond took most of the impact and will never see the road again, I spent some time with Dave Luscan on the fit bike to put in some work while in my TT position. We've used the time to fine tune some of the nuances of my fit and make sure that I come out of this down time ready to roll. Being able to make small adjustments while under load and dealing with fatigue was a pretty valuable tool and made the mandatory indoor riding a bit more bearable. We adjusted a few of my fit coordinates and those tweaks have resulted in a noticeable bump in power.

Dimond and the first ride with full race spec was just plain fun. Having the bike ready to go was a visual reminder that the starting line was getting closer. I love the feeling of flying out on the open road at full speed. The matching Wattie Ink kit and new BlueSeventy PZ4 completed the racing package so I pulled the trigger on a local Sprint/Olympic double in Colonial Beach. Getting back to racing, even at the local level, was just awesome. I was able to interact with a bunch of fantastic age group athletes and pass out a bunch of First Endurance samples. Even though I'm still not quite to the race-winning shape I need to be for IM Mont Tremblant, I was able to put together two solid efforts and enjoy a great weekend with some pretty awesome people (and one tag along that probably invited himself...)
