For the last few years I’ve heard people who doubt the might of the West Coast. There are those that write off the West Coast because it’s a smaller community with fewer venues. There are those who have suggested that those out west are at a disadvantage because we don’t have the same sort of terrain and training opportunities. As West Coast riders continue to head back east and get it done, I’m hearing less and less of those voices. I suspect that after 2016, California will be the hip place to winter rather than Florida. (Maybe not, but a girl can dream, eh?)
