Wow, what a great three days! I get back from nine days of coaching in a wet and rainy Atlanta and my phone and email box was over following with happy riders sharing their stories. From excited Atlanta campers including a 51 year old women who started mountain biking at 41 to possibly the fastest teenager in the world and riders and racers of all levels in between from New Zealand to Nepal.
First Mitch Ropelato calls to tell me he scored is second pro victory at the downhill race in Bootleg. This kid trains hard and trains smart and is full of desire that I don’t think can be coached. Take note of his name as you will be seeing a lot from him.
Then Jamie Danesh emails to say he took 2nd place in first race ever at the Keysville classic! He later tells me that another camper (Jason Benge I believe) from the same camp won the sport class with a time that would of been 1st in expert!
Later I get this email: …..
What a great week! Create your best ride yet,
