2010, Plans?

It's now getting to June. The weather is hot and I'm actually getting out on the bike now. In seasons past I have had a hard peak in the end of June and early July and dragged myself through the fall. I like being fast in May, but not as much as I love being fast in Sept-Oct.

Intentionally or not, this year I have stayed off the bike and am coming into June super fresh. Still hitting the same numbers on the Powertap as last Fall, but now I'm lighter and way more motivated to hit a hard peak in September. The goals are the same, to get fast and be a player in the Bs, or 3s race. Seems like every year we have more and more guys focusing on cross, so I am going to step it up this season! I might say that every year... but I am headed that way.

For the local races we are doing a Thursday night practice race still, but there will be one of them. ViroquaCross will continue with a few weekend events and Marty is going to run one down in PDC as well. So the series is still on, but more informal. Does this mean less prizes? Yes during the weekend, no during the week. The Weekend prizes are going to be nuts! Fancy stuff...

So if you would like to come out and get some this fall, please do. It's always fun to have folks from out of town come up and experience how great Viroqua is!
