We’ve had a couple of really fun rides this week. The weekend will hold a little more “work”, but it’ll still be fun.
Saturday: Road bikes.
Shootout- Meet 5:30, leave 5:45/6. If you do the big boy shootout, do the big boy shootout. If you comfortably make the old man, do the old man.
B Team Ride- Meet 6, leave 6:30. If you are a new rider, or a middle schooler, or have been dropped recently on the old man shootout, you will go on the B team ride. We can definitely use volunteer help on Saturday on the B ride and on the old man shootout.
Sunday: MTB. Meet 6, leave 6:30, back by 10:30. Bring lots of water.
T minus two weeks till Durango. 8 weeks till the first NICA race. 12 days left to submit a T shirt design to me.
Practice this week is about continuing to build base fitness as well as finding finesse on the MTB.
Tuesday- MTB. Meet 6AM, leave 6:30AM, back by 9AM.
Wednesday- Short track. Meet 5:30PM, leave 6PM, back by 8.
Thursday- MTB. Meet 6AM, leave 6:30AM, back by 9AM.
Saturday/Sunday info coming soon.
Hope to see you all out riding with us!
So. I’ve heard from volunteer coaches and parents alike, that the old-man shootout is harder than normal. That’s unfortunate because
Here’s your chance for a good ride tomorrow. Show up at 6:00am, leave at 6:30am for the B-ride. The more people that show up, the faster the ride will be. If you’ve been getting dropped on the old-man the last few weeks, heres an opportunity for you to have a super solid Saturday ride.
HOWEVER, LET THIS BE A WARNING: If you’re killing everyone on the B-ride, OR if you’re making it around on the shootout, OR if you’ve been doing the big-boy for months, you’re not allowed to downgrade. No old-man shootout ‘just because you feel like it.’ That’s how we get the community upset with us for pushing the pace on group rides. Instead, learn to ride well and hide in the group on the shootout.
SO. High schoolers who regularly do the old-man: you’re welcome on the B-ride. Middle schoolers: you’re required to do the B-ride.
Those who typically do the B-ride or are new, please show up at 6:00am, leaving at 6:30am.
See you all tomorrow morning!!
