New Year’s Resolutions from the Salsa Crew

New Year's Resolutions!?! Two weeks into 2010!?! Sure...why not. If anything we've put more pressure on ourselves to accomplish them. We've only got 50 weeks left of 2010 rather than 52.

David: Ride a wheelie more than 10 feet!

Bobby: For some stupid sadistic reason that I can't begin to fathom, I told E-Fred that I would participate in 5 races this season...so I guess that is mine. 5 MTB races in the 2010 season. Actually, I think it will be fun...it's just that the last time I raced I was 21 years old and 60 lbs lighter. The bright side is that I can race Clydesdale class now.

Jeff: My goal this year, if this old body holds out, is to achieve 'Super Randonneur' status and qualify for the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneurs by riding a brevet series of 200k, 300k, 400k, and 600k.

Jason: I'm going to give singlespeeding a fair chance and an extended commitment.

Kid: Get some artistic creativity back into my life. And backpack more. And combine the two whenever possible.

Joe: No resolutions, just plans shaping up...I'll participate in these races: Ragnarok in April, Trans Iowa in April with a sub-24 hour finish time goal, Almanzo in May, and the Dirty Kanza in June.

Sean: Well this should be a good year of long rides and some hard races. I'll be doing a couple of gravel grinders, most importantly the Trans-Iowa. I'm looking forward to it, especially since Joe Meiser thinks I'm going to be his domestique. Little does he know that he'll be pulling a BOB trailer with all my stuff in it. I like to take a couple pounds of fruit and a blender to make smoothies. I find a nice banana, yogurt, and strawberry smoothie keeps me feeling refreshed and focused. I would also like to move up to Cat 2 on the road...uuhhh...we'll see.

There you have it folks. At least a bit of what some of the Crew will be up to in 2010. What about you? Made any resolutions yet this year?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

My resolution is to eat more tacos in 2010, and hopefully purchase a Salsa ride too!

Yeah, I guess I should post some resolutions, too. Lose 20 pounds. Race 15+ times. Leadville 100. Not crash. And I'm sure eating a lot of tacos and salsa will happen, though it's not so congruent with my goal to lose 20 pounds.

Resolution #1: pray for a Salsa Shaft 27.2 full-carbon road post in 2010.

Resolution #2: pray for a titanium rebirth of the Salsa Primero (name idea: Salsa Tit?n, which is Spanish for 'titan')  Remember the movie "Clash of the Titans"?  Getting old, I know, but gracefully riding my Salsa bikes into the sunset!
