Here we are in AndorraMay 14, 2009
Here we are in Andorra, the weather is pretty wild. We checked the course out today and it looks pretty much the same as last year except for the snow on the sides. I'm really excited to practice tomorrow, its going to be a lot of fun but its going to be messy with the mud. We only have practice tomorrow and then a little on saturday before qualifying so I need to get my lines dialled in early.
Last weekends race in La Bresse was cool, the people and the crowd there were nuts, there were so many fans screaming on the sides of the track. It rained a bit for the last hour or so of racing but it didn't change the track conditions. I had a really good run and finished in 2nd place and Brendan finished in 4th so the whole team had a good day. It was also the first time Brendan and I have been up on the podium together on the same team so that was cool. We are looking forward to it being a regular thing from now on.
The drive from La Bresse to Andorra was fairly boring, there was not a lot to see but we did stop in at the Specialized France office which was cool to see, they are in a pretty sick little village and have a mean hot chocolate machine. Brendan pretty much slept for 2 days in the back of the van after a big night out sunday, so it was just Sean, Jacy and me rocking out in the front with half a working stereo. I think the highlight of the drive was when the turbo inlet hose came off and we had to pull over to investigate. Lucky Jacy got us rolling again.
