Went on a shop ride with a new guy from Morgantown. He had a sweet looking Colnago, but I for some reason didn’t take a full shot of it…

 

Anyone know what model it is? It had just about everything Colnago on it. ITM rebranded Colnago stem, Ambrosio Nemesis rebranded Colnago wheels, etc… Keeping with italian heritage, of course it had Campy Record as it’s groupset, circa ?2004? This bike was pimp.

JR Petsko sent out this message, and I thought I would share it with you guys:

Special thanks goes out to, High Mountain Sports and ASCI! With out their help this event would not be possible!

Race Update: (Course Map)
Here is a basic map of the course for this weekend. I am still doing course work all this week so some spot may change slightly. (Course Map) As this is a ski resort the course will consist of MANY fire roads and double track section, rocks and long climbs. We are committed working with Wisp and ASCI to building more single track on the mountain so this event will become better each year. We are here for the long haul!

Please note that the event location is at the TOP of the mountain, NOT in the Wisp parking lot at the base of the mountain.(Directions here)
