Thank you everyone, rider and parents, for another great High School mountain bike race experience. It would be impossible to do it without the help of all the parents and supporters, or the politeness and support from the youth riders.
This is the only team that I want to coach. I am so very proud of how we do what we do and who we are. Thank you all!!
We may have lost some leaders jerseys this weekend but we are still in the hunt. We took our hits, but we will hit back. We will come back stronger and hungrier now. I want them back, as I imagine you do.
However we won the most important one of all. The team competition. Even when things did not for our way or we did not have the best race, we still came together as a team and put together a win. Nice Job.
Lastly thank you to all participants from this weekend, I have received some wonderfully nice feedback about how polite you all were. Well done.
After this long weekend and weeks of training we need to rest a bit.
That way we can be ready to turn it back on and our bodies will respond to it.
If we go hard again too soon we will start to dig a hole that we might not be able to get out of.
Recovery Road ride. If you wish to do this on a ride to and from school that is just fine. But you should ride. If you do not that is not good. You need to get new blood to the extremes.
