It's official, race season is upon us. I'm not as cool at tristan though so no moto footage from me, instead i give you some clips from a little more red sport.

Get some like Cole Trickle this weekend and drop the hammer!!!

Get out.

Man, there's a lot of folks talking and whining about the weather. I understand that riding you bike is really fun, but its not happening right now. deal with it, its not a big deal. Try something new. We've had an awesome crew heading out about once a week snowboarding, just locally, and it's been awesome. I've always heard that skiing in western NC sucks, but I've been having a blast, totally hooked again. This winter does have a positive, get out and enjoy it...

early mornings

Had a really good meeting this morning with an old friend, and I can confidently say SECRET PROJECT #23 is well underway. Those of you in the know already know, those of you not in the know will know soon. All I can say is I haven't been this excited and nervous about something in years. This is gonna be good, details as soon as I can spill em.

Other than that its still really gross outside, and I'm gonna be really glad when this shit weather is done. I'm starting to get a little nervous about the Clemson race weather-wise. I'm also a little nervous about it because my parents are showing up to watch. Their coming all the way from the FLA to watch, and the old man is gonna want a show. We'll see if I can perform. I'm not to worried about it though. What happens happens. All I can do is ride my bike.

Don't waste your time hatin',

Dano out.

P.S.- I'm putting up pic's of me riding in sunnier days. It makes me happy, deal with it.

Playing the waiting game.

So the weather, umm, hasn't been the greatest to say the least. I guess I was spoiled from the previous warmer and dryer winter and all the riding I got to do that I really didn't pay attention when the old timers and true locals here in WNC told me it was gonna be a hard cold one this year. This is for sure the longest time I've not been able to ride with any consistency. I think I even rode more during my Wyoming winter, only at the skate park but it was a godsend. Anyways, it hasn't really been bad in my mind. I know a lot of folks are sick of it and chewing at the bit to get out there, and i can't blame em, but I've been strangely OK with things. Its given me some time to work on some projects that I've had on the back burner for a few years and get a big multi-month chill out, which in hindsight i sorely needed. I've got to catch up with old friends and family too, so I'm not complaining. I also got to build a couple sweet new bikes for myself, with one and possibly two more on the way. For those of you that haven't that haven't seen the SX, it's amazing.

It hasn't been all idle though. We've been taking some Clemson trips, which has been super fun to me, and i also got to check out my buddy Sam Anderson's private trails, which was also awesome and I'm sure I'll be there a bunch in the future. Jumps, drops, flowy single track, and tight switchbacks everywhere with a two minute shuttle to the top. I also made it (barely) out to the Icycle and raced in the mud. I got beat by Wes but hey, you gotta show up ready to race. I can say I had a damn good time. Other than that its just the waiting game, another month and we'll be suffering up the trails and smiling our asses off on the way down. For now I could get bummed, but why?

It's all about that attitude,

Dano out.
