Last weekend was my first race back in the high alpine environment and I was reminded how much I LOVE to ride my bike in the mountains. I am back in the build phase of my training so I showed up to the race with my legs loaded up and the expectation to enjoy the pain!
My Jamis Dakota hardtail with Stan's NoTubes Valors is the perfect weapon for these race courses that are heavy on the climbing! I was running the Vittoria Mezcal in the front and Barzo in the rear, the perfect combo for mud, grass, rocks and blown out corners!

My 6th Sea Otter was a success! It's been a bumpy road (hear the podcast here) and I am back to being healthy again. I was very nervous before the race and wasn't sure I even wanted to line up. However, the moment I was on the track with the other women, I KNEW I was in the right place. I belong on the start line racing with the elite women, giving it my all. Being healthy enough to race brought me so much joy and gratitude. We raced 6 laps and I expected to get pulled after just 3 or 4 laps. I was surprised each time I road through and they didn't pull me! Finishing on the lead and final lap was more than I dared hope for. There is so much work I still need to do to get my fitness back to where it was and I am ready to get back to it! No more travel for me for a few weeks, just hard work and recovery time!
