This Saturday I completed my first race. It was XC length (around 34.5 miles). While my time put me no where near the podium, it felt good to get that out of the way. The following day we hit up one of our favorite trails to tack on an additional 31 miles, bringing the total distance to just over 65 miles. The total vert for the weekend came in at just over 7400 ft. Not bad considering my longest ride a week before was only 12 miles.
I’ve rebooked my flights for work to be able to make the rain date for the Ridgeline Rampage. Hoping for good weather either way (more training!)
