I arrived in Virginia at 950 AM on Friday. I wasn’t sure what to expect having not met any of the guys I was going to stay with. Jim mentioned there were a lot of races going on so I decided to come out before going to Boston.
Wick and Kyle pick me up from the airport. We grab some food and then head back to Kyle's parent's house where they both live.
The place is a full service bike house.
They even had Jim's old bike lying around. This was from his short-lived stint as "the number 1 cat 3 in the nation."
Later on we settle down for a little pre-race prep...
