on one long easter weekend christian, kawika, brian, and I flew to kona on the big island of hawaii and raced at the 2011 hawaii state time trials. we named our team “manago machine 52X18” to honor our fallen friend.
all the communal meals, the restless nights in an empty unfamiliar apartment, and shared weekend with three comrades made me realize how much I respect them. bicycle racing was the mission but not forefront.
and then it was over. the return to normalcy was far too haste.
all photos shown are in the chronological order in which they occurred.
