Here is the tentative schedule:
June 18- Fly out to Missoula MT for the Missoula XC on June 21
June 23- Little road trip with the boy through Sun Valley Idaho and Salt Lake City to Denver, CO.
June 28- US Cup #4 in Colorado Springs
July 9- Fly out to Madison WI, for WORS Cup
Plans are still a little unclear after WI, but will probably involve flying to Pennsylvania for XC Nationals and then to VT for another XCT. To summarize the summer, I wont be on California soil from June 18 until Aug 1 (for my favorite race of the year, the Downieville Classic). Let's hope I like living out of a suitcase and bike box!
^^Racing the WORS Cup in WI last summer.
Last year I had trusty (and sexy) mechanic Brendan at my disposal at all the races I traveled to.
If you have any advice for me going into this crazy summer of travel and racing I would love to hear it. Although I did get to travel a bit last summer, I have never attempted anything like this trip before, and much of it will be solo. Also, if you know of cool places to visit in the areas I am traveling to, or good places to eat hit me up, because I love good snacks, NEED to know about good coffee, and would love to see some sights along the way!
I found my happy place a few times in CO last summer. Hopefully my good travel luck will continue and I will get to see this epic view again (from the Contenential Divide on Monarch Crest Trail in CO)
Happy place here I come!
