Might have to wait a little for the YouTube video. I'm getting a "Waiting for YouTube to process video....." message.

still waiting....

Looks like that's what a good part of the day consisted of 10 seconds of stress followed by 20 minutes of waiting.

Hope everyone is doing well

Dinner

Went to downtown Greenville for dinner. What a fab feeling the town has. A metric ton of people walking around. Fab weather. Parking a bit tight, but workable.

Lots of old building renovations. The tin celling at dinner:


Round 1 of sushi..


Round 2:


A pretty sunset:


Tomorrow begins the dirt. Supposedly more points to be had...so game on! Also, there are two team events. One involves finding the seat, keys, bike, and the toolbag scavenger hunt.

Dinner announces the 12 riders advancing to the finals. Only 3 rider and 3 alternates will see South America.

Damn joints... Nice showing man!

After reading Dana's write up on day one I was thinking that day one would be easier on the superbly balanced 1200 than on the xchallenge. However day two I think the tables would be completely flipped. Time for the hp2 and xcountry to shine.

All played hard. Some merely finished and some finished in style.
