The new kits have arrived, well almost. We received a partial shipment and the rest are due to arrive by April 4th. They look sharp and the fit is awesome.
Twelve riders were up to the challenge of 5,000 feet of climbing in 47 miles. Today we scouted the proposed route for this years TVC event looking for the ideal rest stop locations, possible safety concerns and testing our early season legs. We learned a few lessons today; the route is too difficult without SAG support, the scenery was amazing and "Yes" our legs are ready.
A special thank you goes out to the Riverside County Sheriff's department. We tested their response time and they passed with flying colors!
