Alrighty. We’re getting so close. Whiskey is in 11 days, and Gila starts in 15 days. This point in the season it starts to feel like you’ve been training and racing forever. The riding wears on you. School wears on you. AZ merit testing wears on you. We know. Here’s the thing: you’ve all made it this far. At this point, you just need to put in another few hard practices and you’ll be ready for your events. Honor the work you’ve done all season by finishing this last bit strong.
Tuesday the 16th:
If you are racing Whiskey, show up on your MTB. If you are racing Gila, show up on your road bike. If you are racing both, show up on your MTB.
Wednesday the 17th:
Road bikes all around. 3:45, 4:30, Gila, Whiskey, whatever. Road bikes.
Thursday the 18th:
If you are racing Whiskey, show up on your MTB. If you are racing Gila, show up on your road bike. If you are racing both, show up on your road bike. Read that closely if you’re doing both… 🙂
Saturday the 20th:
Shootouts! Plus Extra. Same start times as last week. More info soon.
Sunday the 21st:
Lemmon. We know it’s Easter. Please try to make it. These weekends of back to back Shootout/Lemmon will do wonders for the legs. Physiological adaptations galore. Start time info will be posted soon.
Paris Roubaix and Game of Thrones were both on Sunday. It was a great day for me. Stoked for Gilbert to take the W. Here is one of my favorite bike racing videos. It’s the 2016 Paris Roubaix, won by Matt Hayman- one of the most humble and kind cyclists in the WorldTour peleton. It’s a pretty amazing video cut together from behind the scenes clips and race footage. Very emotional. Quite cool. Hope you enjoy.
