My favorite race of the season, the Xterra National Championships, is three weeks away! I’ve just finished a great week of training, lots of hard work, but equal parts fun. I had teammates with me for every ride, and the love of my life riding next to me with our daughter in the trailer for my hardest run in months. My body feels great so the plan is to push hard for another 10 days then start my Justin Rossi inspired reverse taper before Nationals.
Our team is incredibly strong and everybody seems ready to perform at their best. We have a chance to earn 5 National Championship jerseys but racers from all over the country bring their best at Nationals so victories are hard battles to win.
Wish us luck!
