For those in the Northeast, you know we have had a little break in the weather the last few days!! Well Hunter and I took advantage of the weather to schedule a last minute road trip to complete final preparation for our Tour of Battenkill webinar series...and to get in a a couple of miles on the toughest course in land!
The mission sounded simple. We needed to get all video equipment working, pack up the old FJ, drive 15 hours +, ride the course at pace and match power files to video, all in under 48 hours. Yep, good old fashion road trip!
It worked great! Like a well oiled machine we completed our prep work and were on the road less than an hour late of our start time. Driving up to Cambridge, we were able to make up some time using ninja highway driving skills and Hunter's super stealth radar detector! We were actually able to make our hotel in Troy, NY more than 30 minutes ahead of schedule which left plenty of time for a great visit to the local Brown's Brewery and one too many beers for the "night before Battenkill".

We hit the road around 10:00am to a quickly warming day and were ready to ride. Our guide quickly filled us in on the first challenge, which we hear from most folks that have done this race successfully, you need to get to the first covered bridge in top 20 position!! Here is a little "teaser" video to to better understand how it leads in: there are plenty more in webinar
