Much too much.
In April, myself and a posse of work folk flew out near Monterey, CA to attend The Sea Otter Classic. Where I had the chance to see a few 27.5 / 650b prototypes and engage in intense conversations on the where the future of this new size will go. I was very disappointed to not attend any of the races that occurred and plan to change that next year. Most of the industry folks stay in hotels, not Dirt Rag, we embrace the poison ivy filled camping that surrounds the event, while consuming beer and dried kelp.
I can sum up May in two words. Dirt Fest. Being a part of coordinating this amazing event is both exciting and exhausting. I shared a small slice of responsibility pie in is this epic weekend of mountain biking. Set at Raystown Lake, PA on some amazing singletrack. It is a great place for advanced and beginner riders. Not to mention test bikes to take out onto these flowy trails. Also, heavy drinking, live bands, swimming in the lake, houseboat parties, and some ridiculousness.
