Team Day Recap
Date: February 6th, 2016
Event: Team Photo Shoot!
Location: Jackson, NJ
A day that we’ve all been waiting for finally arrived. Delayed by the mini snow-mageddon of two weekends ago, the distribution of kits was suspended to today. But first… we had an amazing demo morning with Steve from PowerTap and Saris. Learning about the newest power options from PowerTap was really interesting and for anyone in the market, you should really check out their latest pedal and crank systems… stupendously accurate and user-friendly options for training with power!
Then… we returned to Teresa’s house for the distribution of kits and to take some amazing individual and team photos! A huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Longchamp for spending the long day with us, putting up with our goofy behavior, and taking some truly fantastic photos for us!
In between our moments as budding sportswear models, we ate some delicious chili made by the big boss herself and discussed the upcoming year, our goals for races, for the team, and as individuals. It was a great chance to begin preparations for the upcoming season and to get to know one another off the bike. And, of course, to try on every single piece of gear that we now own!
Finally, we hopped on the bikes and headed out (finally in MATCHING TEAM GEAR!) for a quick spin in the glorious late afternoon warmth of a February Saturday! We’ve been so lucky with the weather this year, so we were truly thrilled to have the chance to spin our legs outside!
It finally feels like we are underway with the 2016 season! And, it feels GREAT!
