Woohoo! BIG news!

I know I've been a bad Masiguy blogger the past several weeks, even the past couple months. My apologies. I'm trying to stay caught up enough that I can post more regularly. I thank all of you for continuing to come by and check to see what is happening around here...

On to the news...

I booked my tickets today for my trip to Rural Hall, North Carolina for the A&F/ Inferno team training camp number two (or D'uh). I'm giddy as a school girl (or really dorky bike geek) and am really looking forward to the camp. It'll be kind of like a cycling fantasy camp for me, but I also get to do some actual work. Some of the other sponsors will be there, possibly even a representative or two from A&F... whoa! I'll be interviewing the riders and keeping track of things so I can write a cool article on the camp, the sponsors and the team. Needless to say, I am pretty excited and am looking forward to meeting the team and my fellow sponsors. It should be a great week with the team, riding in the hills of NC. My fat behind is going to be suffering, but since I am a "sponsor" and not a "team rider", I can hop into a team car when I get too tired to ride anymore. Sometimes, not being a pro has it's advantages.

I've said it many times before and I'm saying it again here; I really like these guys and am looking forward to riding with them and talking to them. It's clear how much these guys are looking forward to this new season and how happy they are to be getting the chance to ride and train all year. Being a fan of the underdog myself, working with these guys is a real thrill for me. Seeing them get some wins and shock a few folks is going to be lots and lots of fun.

I gotta get back to orchestrating my global domination now. I've been working really hard on my sinister laugh and sneer.

PS- Thanks for all the positive feedback on the new website. We've been continuing to work out the little bugs and things should be pretty much perfect now.

It's great to see someone so happy about their 'job'. Remember, not only do you get to hang out with the team - you get paid to do it! How's that grin doing now? :)

I’m glad to hear that you are coming this direction to enjoy some road riding in the Carolinas. You will be east of the mountains, but Rural Hall should have some really nice country roads and rolling hills. They have snow in the forecast for this weekend up there. Hopefully it will warm up a bit before your training camp

Why the switch to a summary feed?!

Please re-enable the full feed, thanks!

How about Masi training camps across the country. One in say five or six regions for three days of riding with Masi guy on your Masi.

geek talk: it is a full feed, there is no summary feed, what you see is what you get. i like the training camp idea, say the first one in san diego and then los angeles, than hollywood, wait that that already happens, come on out and join us. [i know i know, in other parts of the country, it is a grand idea and you should try and make it happen]

Rural Hall's a great base for training. Lots of low-traffic, rolling roads in the area. The roads around Hanging Rock (a little north of RH) are excellent; don't miss the climb up to the summit.

And if you really want mountains, Boone's only an hour or so west....
