I hope this finds everyone well and having enjoyed a restful fall break.


This Saturday we have the 4th round of the ACA races up in McDowell park which is in Fountain Hills, so north east of Phoenix.


All information for the race can be found here: https://arizonacycling.org/races-results/


Along with information about how to volunteer at the race with the ACA league.


Since we are racing on Saturday that means we will need to leave on Friday.


Departure will be at Noon on Friday.


We will then return on Saturday at approx. 7pm.


Please use the link provided to volunteer and help at Grupo camp during the event: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C084EAEAB2BA1F94-ftmcdowell


We are camping at a campground for this race which means that we do not have to worry about water and there are also flush toilets. Another bonus is that there are showers at this venue, so please pack accordingly.




My thoughts for the plan this week are based off of the realization that many of you have not been on your bikes for a week. With that in mind I want to get you moving first and then get you some intensity.


Tuesday– Endurance MTB ride. If you were out of town then this will just get you up and rolling and putting the pieces together. For those of you that were around this gives you a chill start to the week.


Wednesday– NO RIDE. Get your things packed and prepared to leave early on Friday.


Thursday– Himmel Park efforts and hole shots. I want to give us a chance to do just enough work that we have to use our emotional control skills.


Friday– Leaving at Noon.


Saturday– Returning at approx. 7pm.
