The Top Secret Stealth Ninja Training is underway for the upcoming Kit Carson 24 hour adventure race!

The team will be Sean Clancy, Glenn Rogers, and Mari Chandler. We will fly into Reno late on September 12th, and race from the 13th to the morning of the 14th. You can follow our progress on a LIVE leaderboard at www.checkpointtracker.com
Did anyone watch the Gorge Games on Fox Sports Net? They did give our team plenty of coverage, which was broadcast to 80 million households. How many of those 80 million were tuning in?
Some of our sponsors got some serious air time!
Our bright-blue Turner Flux bikes were shown prominently, racing towards our 1st place finish. They are hard to miss!
Our blinged-out Rudy Project Helmets and Glasses were on your flatscreen, as well as our Epic carbon wing blade paddles.
Of course, nuun is our NAME and all over our clothing and gear. We did notice that other teams at the race were using nuun throughout the race. It seems to be fairly standard now, as it makes hydration worry-free and very easy to use when training or racing.
Word is still getting out about GenR8 VITARGO, and I was able to answer questions from other teams about my not-so-secret "Jet Fuel".
Song for today is actually the new VIDEO for Metallica's The Day that Never Comes. The video was directed by acclaimed Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, who, along with Lars von Trier, co-founded the Dogme 95 movement in filmmaking.
According to James Hetfield, "The main [theme of the video] is the human element of forgiveness and someone doing you wrong, you feeling resentment and you being able to see through that in the next situation that might be similar and not take your rage or resentment out on the next person and basically keep spreading the disease of that through life."
