Supercross Cup 2013

The Supercross Cup weekend in Stony Point, NY missed much better weather from the weeks before. Instead racers were greeted with balmy 18°F mornings and sunday was windy all day. There is something magical and quiet about being on the road when it is bitterly cold, but racing is a different story. It doesn't seem to have the romanticism and solitude that comes with waking up early and throwing your leg over a cold seat, climbing for miles and miles on silent county roads. Still, everyone had fun, raced hard and Tim Johnson showed everyone why he wears number one.

*I must also note that the Richard Sachs kits/bikes look superb. Lovin' everything about them.

Moots

A seatpost is simply a post with a way to clamp a seat to it, nothing hard in theory. However in practice not every post works like it was intended, and certainly some are pure eye sores. Moots is a company that needs no introduction, but many have no idea how many great components they have put out over the years. My favorite stems and seatposts were made by Moots in the 90's. They take simplicity to its limits with the most basic design for a seatpost; a titanium post with an elegantly placed clamp securing two machined aluminum rail holders. Thats it.

Nice mellow ride on Sunday heading SE out of Austin. Good weather, good company and some great roads.
