Unfortunately, Spring Break is over.
I hope everyone had time to enjoy it and to take some time for themselves. I know that the training schedule was easy enough to do so.
After TBC and all the hard training leading up, I hope that we all had time to rest a bit, and hopefully we are starting to feel ready to work again.
San Dimas Riders:
I want to get you all ready to race and feeling good. Many of you after TBC have not done too much and are feeling a bit tired and sluggish. We need to shake out the cob webs and wake ourselves up. The fitness is in us and we should have received a bump from TBC, now we need to ask the body to take it.
With that in mind on Tuesday we are going to do some LT work to wake the body up and to prepare us for the work to come. Not enough to crush us, or exhaust us, but enough to fully wake us up. Then on Wednesday we are going to spin out the legs on an endurance ride that gets us back in the groove.
Thursday we are leaving. I would like to leave town at 1pm. Please post if you can leave at this time. Also bring a sweatshirt as it will be chilly in the mornings and evenings.
There might be another van leaving after school if it is needed, so please post your preferences so that we can plan ahead. Also remember we are staying at Christian’s families house so we will need to bring sleeping stuff.
Duncan Fondo Riders:
We are going to ride the Fondo the way we used to ride El Tour. The whole team together, always, going as fast as we can as a team. It should be a super fun day with your friends on new and exciting roads. It is not a race, but you all should have fun seeing what you can do as a team.
I will send out more specific information in the days to come.
However the basic plan is:
Leave Tucson Friday after school.
Arrive in Duncan late afternoon and set up in the Gym at the high school. Sleep in the gym and eat a pasta dinner that is provided by the Fondo.
Saturday: Ride the ride and then pack and be home in Tucson by mid to late afternoon.
I have purchased a number of “tickets” for this race. There are a limited number and they must be earned. I will not give them away. You all know how to earn one. Be consistent on coming to practice. Always try your best. Make the weekend specific rides. Show the coaches through your hard work and dedication that you want a ticket.

I will be at practice on Tuesday but not Wednesday because I will be cross training at a track meet. Will there be a coach riding on the shoot out? I would like to ride to the brigh only because I have a track meet at 11:30. GOOD LUCK TO ALL SAN DEIMES RIDERS THIS WEEKEND!!
Plan sounds great! Super excited for the Fondo 🙂

Madison, I’ll be on the shootout Saturday and riding the whole ride plus Helmet. Maybe between me and your dad it can work 🙂
1:00 works for me.

Where is today’s 4:30 ride going?
Good Luck to the San Dimas riders! Your TBC results show you are ready to kick some serious tail. Ride smart and hard, listen to the wisdom of your coaches.
Grupo Luppo sounds fun for Thursday!
