There will be a lot of information in this post so please read carefully:


All Lights must be turned into me, Ignacio, if you want to race this weekend or next. You must turn in your lights and chargers to race.


Training Plan


I am going to let the racing get us super ready for the big goals at the end of this block, so I am going to be conservative in my approach this week.


Tuesday– Road Bikes openers


Wednesday– Road Bike Openers


Thursday– Off



Friday Races. Remember all information can be found at You might have to click around some but this is where all information is housed.


Friday 1st race is Women 3/4. It starts at 5:30pm. So we need to arrive at 4pm. So we need to leave by 3:30pm. I know this will be tight with school for some, so lets do our best to pack up after practice on Wednesday to make this transition a bit easier.


Friday 2nd race is cat 5 men starting at 6:50pm then the last race for us is the cat 4 men at 7:25pm. Cara you are actually last at 8:45pm. This van should leave the clubhouse at 4:30pm.


We will of course be arriving home very late, so pack food and clothes accordingly.


Saturday. Time Trial out at Picacho Peak. First rider is off at 11am. We need to be prepared to be there by no later than 9:45. So we need to leave the clubhouse at 8:45am. This is a crazy turn around so lets be ready for it.


Sunday. Road Race at Colossal Cave and Pistol Hill


Cat 3/4/5 women and cat 5 men. Your race starts in the very early morning at 7am. We need to be there by 6am at the latest. So we need to leave the clubhouse at 5:30am at the latest.


Cat 1/2/3 men and 1/2 women your race starts at 10:45 and you should be on site at 9:30. You will need to leave the clubhouse at 8:45am.


All riders in the later wave please be prepared to ride home after the race.


All riders please always pack an extra change of clothes for after the race, always pack a good snack, always pack extra warm riding gear just in case.


As if this was not enough there is a cool event tomorrow night if anyone still has time and energy:
