I will still race a few road races but only those that my team puts on where I have to be there anyways and since my team is putting it on it's free so why not. For now I'm also going to stop doing time trials as well. The Felt B2 demo that I used last season is now for sale and I'm not going to spend the money on buying a TT bike.
I've also decided to sell my road bike. In my new plan of all my focus going towards mountain biking I've had some issues were I need a full suspension bike. So I'm going to sell my road bike and some other things to finance a another mountain bike. It will be a huge benefit to be able to chose the bike that will be the best option for the course that I'm racing. Some of the courses are best suited for a hardtail and some are best suited a full suspension.
This may seem a little strange but I will just race a demo from the shop next year or I'll put road wheels and tires on my cross bike and use it. For the few road races and training that I need a road bike for the cross bike will work fine. I've already gone out and given it a try with some of the team guys and it works fine. I do plan on getting a new road bike eventually but for now I'm looking at the priorities and the priority is getting myself the equipment that I will need for next season.
The new full suspension mountain bike I will most likely be riding next week will be the new 2011 Marin Rift Zone. It is their new XC specific racing short travel full suspension. They released it yet but I've gotten the info through the shop. Here's a pic:
Really looking forward to racing this thing. Later.
