My new whips for the season

Another year of racing is already under way, and I've finaly been able to get all the last bits and peices together for my trusty steeds for the year.

This year I'll again be riding for Santa Cruz bicycles on the full carbon V10 for my DH bike!  She's a beauty...especially when she's all dirty.  I can't say enough great things about this baby, and fully equipped with Marzocchi suspension and Schwalbe Tires she rides like a dream!
This year Santa Cruz bicycles also announced some great news for women in cycling....a complete division of quality bicycles specifically dedicated to women and named after the "queen of the mountain" herself...Juliana Furtado!  Juliana Bicycles has some pretty amazing bikes for women to choose from, so needless to say I was pumped to be lucky enough to get my hands on one of these beauties right after the news broke! The line stems from the original "Juliana" model that had previously been in my own arsenal, but the bike I received was the "Furtado".  A 5" travel, climbing, descending, carbon machine!  She's a beauty and has already taken me to so many great places!

Until next time...
