"For two non-pros, it was pretty awesome to get to experience what it must be like to be a training professional – a daily life built around riding and recovering and pushing yourself beyond your limits."
This race is already kind of an experience on its own. No trees, nothing, just endless field with a sneaky trail going up and down around a canyon. Some birds. Some rocks and it’s dry like a desert. The silence is kind of scary, when you come from Portland, it’s definitely weird to face nothing but the sound of the wind. Just this weird vibration of the wind in my left ear. It makes the whole place surrealist. The landscape reminds me of a painting by Dali, somewhere between something really organic and the weirdness of a dream, the same field as far as the skyline - the infinity of repetition.
New @chriskingbuzz bits on my Remedy look so good! Echo is going to hurt tomorrow, and my Remedy is a lot of bike for an XC race, but whatever, it’s March and I get to ride my MTB 30 some miles and that sounds pretty good.
