Epic Off-Road Round 1: Whiskey 50
Post Sea Otter was a blur of truck tetris and blitzing out of Laguna Seca before the mass exodus traffic hit. Success. Also, my friend Serena Bishop, another LIV rider, joined me for this leg of the journey which made the week a whole lot more fun.
this course 5 times now (sheesh, that makes me feel old), and she was a stronger climber and pedaler on the road. We went back and forth a couple times, but she caught me on the road heading in to town. Crystal outright schooled me in the sprint to the line. Yes, I looked like a child on a strider bike next to her. Put sprinting on the list of things I need to work on...
Pro XCT Round 1: Fontana City
The first round of the Pro XCT, which took place last weekend, also happened to be the first big race for F.A.S.T.
