We're had our suspicions for years, but Adam's picture confirms the truth. Look closely, under race stress, Tanner's vampire fangs are showing. This explains a lot. No wonder a few years ago he suddenly started dropping me like a rock on all climbs. Superhuman strength has to come from somewhere.
In other news, it's time for cross racers to turn their thoughts to Bend Oregon and Cross Nationals. Mark, Doug and I will be making the trek this year with a trailer filled with the goods. (Sadly the Vampire has finals at the same week.) We'll have room to haul some additional bikes and equipment. The haul fees will be a lot cheaper than the airlines, so let me know if you're interested.
The compound will be bigger, better and heated this year. Hopefully, we'll be able to set up next to the Church of the Big Ring crew again. Any Utah racers are welcome to use the facilities for warm up and hanging out.
The stairs will be back again this year.
Never enough bikes around. Can't wait. But before the big dance, the State Championships should be good this week at a new venue with solid potential. Might even be winter like conditions. One can always hope.
