It’s been a busy month; I got to ride my first three day stage race and was bowled over by the scale of the event. I have had many years of being involved in events and know what it takes to put together, so I can confidently say that the Wines2Whales is world class. Stillwater Sports should be highly commended for the excellent, not one, but three “events” that make up Wines2Whales. I definitely plan to do many more stage rides and the bar has been set really high, I know that I will always compare whatever else I do to W2W. I am also tackling a day of the Origin of Trails, which is a new event on the Stillwater calendar, and then the Ride the Rock in February – hope to see you there.
It is also the time of the year when all the new equipment is released, new bikes, accessories and toys! Good thing it’s Christmas and if you don’t celebrate Christmas it’s holidays and summer so what the hell, put together a wish-list, hint like hell and if all else fails burn the credit card! In November we were lucky enough to get an insight into the world of Specialized – thanks to Bobby, Bianca and the rest of the Specialized team for hosting us. They’ve got some very exciting new products coming out in 2014 – see the piece on it in the News section – and pop into your local dealer.
We say goodbye for now to David George, whose new venture is going from strength to strength and it appears if all goes well David will be back on a bike pretty soon. Despite being controversial David has written for Full Sus since our first issue and we wish him well.
December is family time, time to rest and recover from a busy year. Use the holidays to enjoy all the rides and races or just explore the trails and beautiful countryside we are so privileged to have access to. We would like to thank you for supporting Full Sus in 2013 and wish you and your family a very safe, happy, restful Festive Season.
