• Pre-race day spin

    Pre-race day spin with ErnestoMeet up with SoloGoat for a pre-race day shake down of the legs. Nothing crazy today other than riding up the opening climb in a super chill gear. We followed that up by hitting up the open section of singletrack to get a feel for proper air pressure in the tires and suspension. Bikes and bodies are tuned for the event.

    Pre-race day spin with ErnestoTrail is dry and dusty...primo Colorado racing conditions. Did I mention it was dusty? Cough! Cough! There are a few muddy spots from melting snow...but nothing to crazy to swallow racers whole. My legs feel super...Coach has me dialed...and am looking forward to a super solid effort tomorrow when the gun goes off at 11 AM.

    Here is a sampling of the opening singletrack that we did a short out and back on. It's big-ring material all the way. GIVE'R!!!!

    Marathon National course profile2 laps on this profile. It's not going to be kind those coming up from the low lands. Gosh, the previous years for me here, altitude was a limiter. Technically, this year should be a bit easier.............technically.

    Race report to come Friday night. For the time being, check out some pre-race press.
