The only change in schedule for the Masters Women and Masters Men SBX Race days compared to Open Class was no lunch break. There were a few other age groups competing so there was plenty of time to get nutrition when you needed it though (food is very important!).
Ale (see Athlete Bio Page: here) raced on the only ‘snow’ day we had during the whole trip (it was 60’s and sunny every day). The forecast was for rain and we thought “how appropriate”. Considering that about a 1/3 of our training days were in the rain this year, we thought that no one’s going to be better prepared for these conditions – lol. Thankfully no rain fell. It was around 40 degrees and actually spitting snow and flurries with a few breaks of sunshine.
