On the plus side, I got to get some testing time on the new GS1 grip that will be coming out in 2011. The GS1 is a long distance race grip. Think of it as a comfort version of the GX1. Weighing in at
After spending about 1.5 hours on the GS1 today, I have a feeling this grip will surpass the GX1 in rider/race usage. Overall, it is so much softer than the 'xc race' oriented GX1. While each model has its specific usage, the GS1 will be a hit with racers and non-racers alike. Plus, the price point is the same.....at $39.95
Training continues to be minimal for the next week or so. I found a place to move into today. It is as close to the mountains as you can get with out actually being in the mountains. Access to trails is literally around the block. A huge score for the price!
Got to keep on honing the fitness. Possible one last big race coming in the next month or so. Details to come if it materializes!
