You've been on both sides as a former rider and now a team manager. With that being said, since you really understand what it takes to be successful in each aspect, how difficult is it to achieve what your team is potentially going to accomplish this weekend in sweeping the regional titles?
It's a little bit of luck and talent. Like I said, the whole package has to come together. Our bikes have been great all season. We haven't had a mechanical (issue) yet, knock on wood (laughs). Also, the riders have to be fit and stay healthy for the whole season. Things have just come together. In a way there is a little bit of luck involved and things have worked out well for us this season, but a lot of that comes with preparation too. This is our fourth year doing this now so I've used all of my knowledge and background that I have to put together the best program we can. My dad, with his mechanical background, builds the best bikes, but we also try to make them reliable. I just think we have a really good package.
