Did you know that SDC Rhythm XP is not Airspeed's farm team?
posted: Feb 12th, 2016 It is usually the beginning of a new year and a new competition season that creates that funny feeling in the stomach: that combination of anticipation and excitement of unknown things to come. It was the end of the year this time that was possibly even more exciting than new beginnings.
