No Stumpjumper Trail Crew for me :(
Well I didn’t get shortlisted. Although I’m really not surprised since I don’t lead group rides (not lately anyway) and I haven’t formed some sort of club outside of my own group of friends. However, I am surprised Colin wasn’t picked. I get to see how much effort he puts into maintaining http://cvmtb.com and organizing things for the Island Cup Series (DH and XC races here on Vancouver Island) among others, plus he’s a HUGE Specialized Fan. So now I’m REALLY curious to see who was picked. I’ve been keeping a close eye on @iamspecialized on Twitter and I suspect this crew is all American. I wonder if there’s liability issues for choosing people from other countries?
Over the next year I plan on focusing on getting my business off the ground (I’m in the process of starting my own IT company) and recovering from my ankle injury. I’m hoping they have another crew for the 2011 Stumpjumper… I’ll absolutely try again!
Now to stay tuned to see who made the cut…
