    State Marathon Championship-on Cannondale!

    Well I finally acquired the State Championship jersey that has eluded me on both mountain and road yesterday in Prescott, Arizona. I won the State Finals race in the marathon and wrapped up the Championship series with a second and three first place finishes. It was a difficult race, 38 miles, with lots of climbing including a long technical climb with multiple hike a bike sections and loose technical descents with water bars and washes. Lots of crashes yesterday (including me!). To make things more difficult it was also unusually hot into the 90's.
    I had started out the series on an alloy Rush. I originally purchased a Rush 600 with our team deal and began upgrading the bike as I could afford to. I had a chance to try a Scalpel team that belonged to a team mate of mine, loved the lighter weight and climbing ability of the bike and we worked out a swap as he was selling the bike and was happy to sell it as a Rush.
    Here is the bike as I raced it yesterday complete with Prescott dust. Planned upgrades include a SI hollowgram crankset,carbon bars and DT swiss rims with tubeless conversion strips to take about a pound off the bike.

    Fork-Lefty Carbon SL, SI integrated stem
