Conquer is a new Ecuadorian bear and the sponsor of the Canoa Ridge Race this year. They're taking very good care of us in Guayaquil for the first few days of the trip. Today we're towing for the media, flying right on the edge of the city. It's a bit on the dusty side and reminds me of Santa Ctuz Flats, but not so hot and with lots of friendly spectators. The boys are testing out all of their equipment and still talking plenty of smack re who will rule the ridge.
