Redland’s Bicycle Classic 2015

After San Dimas, some of us headed to Thousand Oaks California, to train at our teammate Peters, Uncle’s House. We were there for about a week before Redlands, so we each had time to get back into the swing of training and race preparation. After talking with my coach, the plan was for me to […]

A culmination of things

But I decided to stay away from my opinions and stick to just race updates.  Because you know what they say about opinions!!! Turkey Hill Road Race This is […]

Joe Martin Stage Race

Joe Martin Stage Race Joe Martin was a total last minute decision which I made the week of the race.  My coach figured my fitness would be good coming off of Redlands because it was essentially 5 hard days of motor pacing.  While a bit hesitant, I didn’t know if I was mentally prepared for […]
