|New Years Eve, Allison's foot went bad that day.|
|Singletrack riding with Weeger, one of the best rides of January.|
In February Allison tried to train again despite her injury. The excitement over the 2011 race bikes fueled us along with the refusal to give up hope that she could get back on track and continue her ascent in racing. She was, actually we both were, desperately groping at the edge of an icy crevasse of unknown depth that neither of us wanted to admit she had slid into without warning.
|The new race bikes ready to rumble.|
|I love riding with this girl!|
|After the short ride together I rode home solo from Escondido.|
There was no winning at Sagebrush, only suffering and cold.
March was a new month and the disappointment of Sagebrush pushed me to a higher level. I am not sure if there was another race in 2011 where I was so much "in the zone" as I was at Bonelli.
Shortly afterward Fontana brought one of the most memorable and closest races I have ever had on a mountain bike.
|Special thanks to Brian for making this race amazing.|
|The "Top Step" at Fontana, a dream come true.|
|Joking with Sheek off the start line.|
|"Tower, requesting a flyby."|
