However, before we leave 2015 as a collection of old Facebook photos we won't ever look at again, until that friendly site reminds us 4 years from now what we were doing on some random day, here is a quick reflection on what made 2015 so great.
January - Set the course record at the San Bruno Hill Climb
February - Won the P123 race at Boulevard in a massive effort after doing an insane amount of work in the race
March - Raced alongside Emily Batty, Catherine Pendrel and Georgia Gould at the US Cup Bonelli #1, had my first real post race interview, rode the A- line on each lap and basically had the best day of my life in the first real mtb race of the year.
April - Got to race Whiskey 50 for the first time, had a crap load of fun, finished both the fat tire crit and 50 mile races on the podium, got my first ever big check!
May - Rode in the Catalina Gran Fondo = pretty much the most fun ride of the year
June - Go Pro Games podium, won a set of antlers at the Missoula XCT and taught my very last day of school (for who knows how long!!)
July - Nationals in Mammoth was pretty much my favorite race week ever culminating with a 4th place in the XC race
September - Traveled to Brazil to race bikes in the hardest race ever, bike got lost, got attacked by wasps, had an absolute blast!
October - Tons of epic rides with Carl all over Southern California, plus I got to do Levi's Gran Fondo!!!
December - Christmas in Joshua Tree = first time rock climbing outdoors!!
And that's it, the best of the year summed up in a nice little list. With 31 minutes left in 2015, here's to making 2016 awesome like 2015! I'm stoked to see what's to come!!
