Mike and Mark heading up
Face shots were the order of the day
I'm getting the goods
Is it vain to keep looking at your tracks?
After the skiing, I headed south to meet up with Tanner for a quick lap on the ICUP Hurricane course. I didn't race Hurricane last year and the course was changed from 2008. The changes make the course into one of my new favorites. Good, technical desert riding. I was reminded yet again that there's no where else I'd rather live. Epic powder in the morning, classic desert riding in the afternoon.
I had no idea what the race would hold for me. 3.5 hours of hking and sking beginning at 6 am the day prior to a race probably isn't on any coach's training plan. However, it turned out to be a good plan for me. I ended up with my best MTB result in a couple years. Go figure.
Today, I'm home for Easter with my all my children. I'll take more weekends like this.
