Dugway-Wendover-20130906-00152So we have been in USA for a couple of days now. We had an overnight in Salt Lake City on Thursday and travelled to Elko on Friday.We collected the Beastie from the shipper Enviroco/Asco Freight Management. The drive to Elko takes you past the Bonneyville Salt Flats and over the mountains. The scenery is dramatic and the weather matched with electric storms. We arrived Elko Friday evening. Managed some training for an hour on Friday. Saturday morning was devoted to working on The Beastie with a session on the bike in the afternoon. The weather is hot and the air is really dry. We head to Battle Mounain today with the IHPVA Speed Challenge starting tomorrow morning.

I found Graeme Obree to be an inspirational figure when I was just starting out. His life is like a Hollywood film, but one that you would find unbelievable if you watched it in the cinema - Sir Chris Hoy.
