There was another example of change this week with the cancellation of the much adored and anticipated NICA mountain bike series. The race organization did their very best to make the races happen, but there were just too many hurdles to overcome.
Team El Grupo had 15 athletes signed up to compete and the news came with disappointment but understanding and we’re very proud how team digested the news. We were overdue for some rest, so this week’s programming is all about rest, fun and resetting.
Looking forward, we still have a Southern Arizona tradition; the Mount Graham hill climb on September 27. Also coming up in early October are new Team El Grupo tryouts.
Here’s the upcoming practice week. Note that this coming Saturday will move from 5:45am to a more reasonable 6:15am.
