Here we go. First race of the season. It will be a long season so lets prepare well.
I often talk about the little things and really they can’t be more important now. Early in the season is when you want to learn how to pack your bags for race day, check the website for start times, know what you like to eat before and after races. You want to learn these things early in the season so when the big races come you no longer have to think about these little things. You can just focus on the race and then on your recovery. So focus and learn the little things now.
One other thing to help keep things easy and low stress, is to always show up on race days on time. At least an hour and a half. So I will always try to get you to races with this time.
Lastly with the races being so early. GET TO BED!!!!!!
You are all in this race. You need to be at the course with bike ready at 6am.
I will be at the clubhouse at 5:30am to help get things ready.

Many of you older racers might want to do a second race. If so and you have raced in the morning. Then you need to be very smart and bring appropriate clothes and food to wait until the second race. You might also want to think about a way to take a nap.

Everyone but Chloe, Ethan, Cara and Matthew:
