Sean, we were going to head out there on Friday but figured it was rained out. You guys obviously got some racing in. Hopefully we will get out there a few times this season to watch.

The finial races did get rained out. We finished the Cat 1 / 2 races, but I don't think the Cat 3, Women's, and Cat 4 finished their third races of the night. It's preseason so the only thing we are racing for is up grade points and to shake off the cobwebs.

Couple of quick video edits from Friday
https://vimeo.com/94105674 Point a Lap, very chaotic race. Think I managed 5th.
https://vimeo.com/93710455 Scratch Race, managed 2nd place in it.

I'll play. Not feather light, but she's about 16.5lbs with the RS80s. After using Di2, I don't think i'd own anything else.

Sean, curious if you ever found separate bike policies that made any sense. Recently had my 1 yr old Trek poached out of my garage. Wasn't worth filing on the homeowners. Should've lied and said 3 bikes, 3 sets of golf clubs and 3 wakeboards were stolen....

Nice job on the vids. I was getting motion sick trying to watch the race and speed at the same time....

I never pursued bike only insurance very far. Seemed to be 10% a year of insured value. With 5 expensive bikes and a few not so expensive bikes it's a lot shell out. I have all of the bikes locked up in the garage with a mix of cable and U locks. Bummer about your bike, it kills me that this stuff happens. I was in a crappy part of Tacoma earlier this week and saw what appeared to be homeless dude on a Colongo. I wanted to cry and take a pic at the same time.

Have bike team-mate's SWorks Venge on loan for a little bit. Got it out for a ride today, set a bunch of PR's on Strava during the ride. It rides and climbs very nice. I had to really tweak his set up to get it to fit me. Di2 electronic shifting is nice, did not blow me away but is nice. First time with QRotor rings too. can't say I noticed anything different. Has a Quark power meter on it too.

My buddy just got a similar Venge. It's blacked out S-Works though with the Roval 60s on it and Force 22. Bike looks awesome. My LBS sold more Venge than any shop in the country last year. They are VERY popular around here.

My team-mate has an other SWorks Venge with Red 22 and Roval 60s on it. The one he is letting me ride is too big for him, will see if he wants to cut me a killer deal on it

My bro had a limited edition cav venge. It was a super nice bike, good middle ground, did everything well. Sure, it's no Giant but a pretty nice bike. Ha ha.
