Trek/K-Swiss team camp


February 21st, 2010 by



New team, new kit, new bikes and jet lag. – It’s all go here in Santa Monica, north of LA, at the K Swiss headquarters. Lots of fun stuff happening, a little bit of training and a tonne of learning and some terrible hair styling all in the name of team building……??

My new toys – Trek TTX time trial machine and the beautiful Madonne decked out in brand new team colours. Wow factor! We are all itching to get outside and ride. Training has been limited due to the amount of media and presentation material we have had to get through so far, but tomorrow morning there is a 5hr epic ride being led by Chris Lieto. I might be hanging ….

We each had to ‘ride’ the new Speed Concept (available in the summer!) in front of the white screen with the magic of a steel cable (can you spot it?) – this is my team mate Joe Gambles in full flight in prep for an upcoming advert being made by Trek.

And finally for the camp so far …. hair cuts?? I know, I hear you – “why?”. Uhu, my thoughts exactly, but if I tell you I was already upstairs and in bed doing my best at avoidance after dinner time, would you believe me? I hope so …. however that old chestnut; peer pressure reared it’s ugly head, and here is the consequences. It’ll grow back right?

I guess i’ll have to find a proper hairdresser for the first time in a long time to get it ‘put right’ over the next 2 weeks.
