2015 USASA SBX Year-End Re-Cap

While my goal for this year was the same as the past few (win Gold at Nationals), I had a little more incentive to succeed, as a Gold in April would have made it 3 in a row.
Lined Up for Time Trials
Leading up to Nat’s, I had won 5 Rocky Mountain Series regional races where I was often racing against younger age group competitors.  I was riding really well and had consistent, strong starts throughout the year.

2015 USASA SBX Race Update

This has been an unusually warm and dry race season - luckily no races have been cancelled, but all of the scheduled practice days at Ski Cooper were scratched.  Speaking of which, Ski Cooper was a new race venue and provided a fairly technical course with over 20 features (even with the low snow totals).

Fight Club on Snow - Part 3

Be sure to read Part #1 and Part #2.

So do our racing efforts line up with the movie themes listed earlier?  Decide for yourself:

- Racing provides a regular opportunity to participate in intense competition.  Preparing for racing (gym training, practice,etc.) and striving to be better each race gives an added focus to daily activities and SBX/SX athletes seem to have a certain passion for living that others may lack.
