This is now the real meat of the season. In the next 5 weeks, or 35 days, we have 3 races.
I sure hope everyone is excited. We are most certainly where we need to be training wise, now we just need the mental and emotional commitment to follow through.
I can’t stress the little things enough this time of year. Parents help us get everyone to bed on time, feed them as well as you always do, and make sure they are hydrated. Those are really the most important little things that you can help out with.
This next race is in Sierra Vista, which means it should be easier for more of you to come watch. The race also needs volunteers and we are considered a home team for this race. So if anyone of you have the time and energy to volunteer at the race, that would be a great way to support the league.

In fact all information for the race can be found there.
Also with in that link is the pass that you need to get on to the military base. You must print out the pass to get on the base.
I, Ignacio, will again be driving and arriving to the race course early. Camping is again first come, first served, so I will work hard to get us a good spot.
BIG CHANGE IN LEAVING TIME ON SATURDAY ——- 11:30 am.
This will have us arriving at the course at roughly the same time as in races past. So please youth bring you lunch or have eaten well before you arrive.
I feel confident that we have the fitness. We need now to be prepared for the race, and we need to be ready to shred. So just like for the last two races, we put in the work on the off race week and now we rest and hone our skills for the race to come. I am hopeful that the rain will subside by late tomorrow, but I will be sure to post if we are not going to ride. So the assumption is we are going to ride, until further notice.
