That sure is one way to get a season started. I was confident that we were going to be able to compete at a high level, but I am amazed at how well we did. I did not see a single rider come across the finish line not having given a full effort. Every rider I saw gave 100% to the race and I can’t ever ask more than that. I am very proud to call myself coach today, because of how we raced. The results sure are nice, but how we raced means even more. BRAVO TEAM
Thank you to all the parents, coaches and volunteers who came supported the team. None of it would work with out you. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. I want to give a special shout out to Maya Adams for taking the lead in the kitchen and camp. Thank you for keeping all the volunteers happy and able to do what they needed to do. Volunteers and Parents thank you so much. I don’t know who to thank you enough. You all make it possible.
BUT LETS NOT GET AHEAD OF OUR SELVES.
That was only the first race. We have four more to go, and now everyone is looking at us. We are now the target and everyone will be taking aim and their nest shot at us to beat us. We need to now more than ever step up our game to try and stay on top. While this victory and good showing sure is nice, we need to be aware that everything just got harder for us.
TEN WEEK STAGE RACE
Riders this is a stage race now. You are on for the next 8 weeks. Every little thing counts and if you stay on top of them they add up to a big thing. Control what you can and then just let the rest go. Be mindful of the intent of the workouts and try hard to execute. Be mindful of getting your homework done on time, to minimize the school stress, drink water and always be hydrated, eat good food that tastes good that is good for you, go to bed early.

Hi Coach- is there a link or a place where parents can see the results? Thanks!
Yes! Here it is: http://www.arizonamtb.org/2018-races-and-results/
You can also check out LIVE results typically while they are racing or at least same day within reason.
GREAT work at NICA #1 race!!! So impressed with all of the podiums; everyone’s fitness is excellent now! I will not be able to help with Thursday practice due to out of town client meeting late in the day.
