Check Peat's new bling bling yellow Orange and the Gemini is changing design, looks like retro colours are the new thing. Also do those Juicy 7 levers look pimp or what!

The best news I heard from Sea Otter... Canadians DOMINATED XC! Kabush won mens, Sydor won womens. Good work!

Like I said....hahaha

only reason I watch xc is because of the canadians. I think the good american riders (for endurance) focus more on road, because seriously if there was money in xc and the roadies crossed over with the way most courses are made, they would likely dominate.

It had to have been in the lower 80's maybe upper 70's on Saturday. It was awesome weather. Even the announcer at the dual slalom practice kept commenting on the warm weather. Sunday got very chilly. I had to buy a long sleeve shirt because I was cold.
