Full race report and interview:

Last turn, about 100m to go, full anaerobic/full power, one last check on my ~15m gap to Todd.

National level fitness and skill, pretty amazing.

I love the description of the pass; storybook ending. I'd love to see a video of that, like a last lap F1 pass.

On the long drive down 395 I stopped in Lone Pine to climb up Whitney Portal Rd. 4500' in 12 miles. 3700 to 8100'. Did I mention it's steep?
Closed about halfway up due to landslides. Of course I slipped past the sign and rode it anyway. Whole road to myself, epic views. Black Ice at the top was hairy. 58 at the bottom, 37 and no sun at the top. brrr.

Congrats Emilio! I saw FMs Facebook post about your win, great to see competitors be so good to each other.

I have some news as well. As of tomorrow I am officially starting work at a local TREK store. They bought out about a dozen local shops and Im so happy to be part of the family. Goal is to get to a Sales Manager position in spring. Ride to work, ride for work, great discounts, and I really love what they are doing for the communities around them. This is going to be awesome!

RE: Emilio. That's great to hear about your line on the off camber section. I've been listening to the Trainerroad podcasts lately and they were talking about that section leading up to the race, how they were going to have to possibly run it? Pretty funny. Great job again!

RE: Alex, congrats on the new job, can't wait til the warm weather, although I see you guys still do group rides over the winter...nuts!

Default 2018 Scott Spark 900 WC

XL size. Got it about a week ago.
Swapped a few parts
Crazy light and beautiful 175mm Sram XX1 carbon cranks swapped for 180mm FC-M9020 XTR cranks.
Swapped OEM Syncros ti saddle for my preferred S-Works Romin Evo carbon saddle
Egg Beater 11's
Swapped OEM 180mm front rotor for 160mm CLX rotor and deleted spacer bracket
23.2# with cage and Scott's nifty integrated Garmin mount

Building a set of EIE carbon wheels, 24mm internal wdith, asym profile, CX-Rays, Novatec D792 hubs. Those should bring the weight down to about 22.7#. Pretty crazy for a fully with 2.25's in XL.

Bike is a rocket. Climbs better than anything I have ever ridden except my 20# FSi hardtail. Super modern laid back 68.5 head angle and increased rake makes it stable like a 6" bike on steep descents. So much faster descender than my Pivot Mach 429 Carbon. Some of that credit goes to the fatter tires, 2.25 vs 2.1. Funny, my last DH bike was a '97 GT LTS-DH 6" F&R with 2.4 Michelin DH tires. This bike is stiffer and better handling. Technology!
For those not familiar, this is a pure XC race bike, not anything like an all mountain or trail bike. The latest XC race bikes are cribbing some of the geometry from 6" AM bikes

Salient features:
- Handlebar mounted lockout for F&R suspension (one lever)
- Eagle XX1 12 speed
- Many carbons
- Nino rides one

Nice rig! I recently got to demo a Domane SLR8. Very comfy bike, disc brakes are awesome, not a huge fan of the front ISO though. Sounds like a headset is loose if you jab the brakes. I do wish I could run 32c tires on my road bike though :(
