|Glorious, smooth, NM goodness.|
So this weekend's race has brought me to Angel Fire, NM. My first time even in New Mexico, and the third elevation race of the season! This bad boy starts at 8,500ft and promptly climbs 700 ft to just over 9,000ft. The climb is all on a trail called Enlightenment, which is fitting because by the top I'm seeing things and feeling very... englightened haha. Pre-rideing was fun when I was doing easy lap, but on my race paced lap I was having so many struggles! It's dang hard to climb 700ft when you're already on top of the world! haha.

Needless to say, I got no pictures on the descent because I was having way too much fun! Instead, here is ANOTHER picture of beautiful New Mexico singletrack!
In other news, I ate my first sopapilla yesterday after pre-riding and it WAS AMAZING!!! Not hating New Mexican food right now.
Off to get ready to race, wish me luck! This is gonna hurt :)
