• Ouachita Challenge prep

    Horsetooth Res.Counting the days now until the first individual race of the year. Next weekend in the Ouachita Challenge in Arkansas....and all the riding leading up to this event is prep. Today I was supposed to be on singletrack...but as you can see, the snow from the other day will be sticking around for a few more days. So, I still headed out on the mtb to get in a 2.5 hour ride. With in that 2.5 hour ride was a 1 hour effort at what will be my OC race pace. Wasn't able to work on the tech skills, but I was able to simulate the climbing that the OC will throw at those racing.
